Where do you belong?

by Gaurav Sethi

An incredibly moving tale of Ravi Varma, over at Straight Points.

How Ravi moved to the Emirates and saw his cricket dreams come true.

Got me thinking about how so many talented young cricketers should have got off their bony butts and moved their asses elsewhere.

What’s more important, chasing a useless dream but never playing for your country, or playing cricket at the highest level for any nation that will have you?

KP, can you hear me?

Look at what could have been:

Stuart McGill playing hard-to-get for the Poms

Rohan Gavaskar driving down to Dacca

Andrew Symonds & Andre Nel causing more upheaval in Afghanistan

Misbah-ul-Haq for anyone who will have him

Mohammed Yousuf for anyone who will not have him

Laxman Sivaramakrishnan for a dry state

Ashley Giles playing for a Negative State of mind

Vivek Razdan for the Russian basketball team

Thin lips, Hemang Badani playing as the third Flower

Brett Lee for the Hollywood Superstars, U.S.A

Glenn McGrath instead of the bowling machine
