How to get to the bottom of your local cricket fans
A new book has been released that explores the secrets of the local cricket fan and how it affects their lives.
The book, Cricket at Home, tells the story of the lives of local fans in different parts of India and how their cricket experiences shape their lives and their cricket.
The author, Taza Gokhale, is a former cricket journalist who spent the last 15 years covering the game and the social and economic impact it has had on his home state of Kerala.
He has been working as a journalist for various publications and is one of the most sought-after journalists in the country.
In the book, Gokharale goes behind the scenes of the sport’s growing popularity across India and examines the motivations of the fans.
The story begins with a small village in Kerala that is the setting for a story about a local cricket enthusiast, Shilpa Jadhav.
Shilpaja’s family has owned a cricket club in Kerala for nearly a decade and his wife has become the club’s chief executive officer.
His love for the game grew as he went to all the matches in his village.
One day, he and his family were invited to join a tournament in Nagpur, a city in north-east India.
They were thrilled to meet people from all over the country, and soon found themselves having a conversation with local cricket experts and friends about cricket.
This was not the first time Shilpanada’s passion for cricket had touched people in the community.
As he began to study cricket at the local college, he was drawn to the game as a way to explore the game in his community and the broader society.
This led to him taking up a job as a social worker and later as a manager at the club.
While working for the club, Shillpa had a passion for the local game and his life’s work in it.
He had the chance to meet his father, the club chairman, and some of the members of the community who had helped him grow as a player.
One of these members was his close friend, the then-manager of the club who had joined him on the road to cricket.
“We were always having a good time, but at one point my friend and I were talking about the players we would see in Nagpreet and he was telling me that his father was a local cricketer.
I felt really excited, and I started to get really close with him,” says Shilpas father, Shivan.
After getting back from Nagpur and spending some time in Kerala, Shilan decided to follow his passion and pursue his dream of becoming a professional crickler.
“My goal was to become a crickater, but my dream was to go and play for India.
But as a kid, my parents were really against it,” says Gok.
In 2009, Shili went to a cricket camp in Kerala to study.
He met the club captain and began to play with him and other players.
Shillpas parents had never heard of cricket until he came to their village.
“I was really happy, but then I realised that there was a problem, because my father was in the process of getting married,” says Jadhave, who was in his 20s at the time.
His father was not happy about his son playing cricket, so he arranged for Shilppa to take a break from cricket for a few months.
“When I came back, my father got a phone call from his son, who said he was going to be playing cricket again, but he was not going to play against me,” says the father.
Shivan realised his father had not only lost his passion for playing cricket but had lost his wife and was struggling to make ends meet.
“He was having to go out and earn money to support us, and it was hard for him to take care of our son,” says his father.
“It took a while for me to realise that Shilwas family wasn’t the only one suffering,” says M. Shildevasam, a social psychologist who is one the authors of the book.
“The families of the players I interviewed had been through similar experiences and, unfortunately, the cricket players were not the only ones struggling,” he says.
Shils father told Shilpi that he was ready to accept his son’s decision and leave his village in south-eastern India.
Shili agreed, and he set off on his journey to Chennai, where he played for Kerala State Championship side Malakadams for four years.
When Shilpadas family was able to buy their first house in Chennai, they decided to buy a house and move to the city where they would continue playing cricket.
One year later, when Shilpal and Shilpta moved to a new village in north Kerala, they had to start rebuilding their house and decided
