Why do I watch cricket

by Naked Cricket

Why do I watch cricket
Not for Ijaz Butt and his shenanigans
Why do I watch cricket
Not for happy hour with the boys at Bennigan’s
I don’t wanna keel over, on the side
With some mongrels arguing about the sanctity of their side
But it’ll do, too, if that’s all there is, it’ll do

Why do I watch cricket
For that precise moment when I know
I’m about to call it right
And Ishant Sharma won’t be able to resist
To follow a good one
With some overpitched scum
That will be driven right down
By Shane Watson for four runs

Why do I watch cricket
For the last ball of the day
By an old hand rookie called Amit Mishra
That knocks Michael Clarke
One of his five
For that precise moment when I know
I’m about to call it right
On his debut, that this kid will be history soon

Why do I watch cricket
When I don’t wanna spend money on a ticket
You got a free pass
I’ve got 8 sports channels with everything on
With cricket to football
From Berlin to Bonn

Why do I watch cricket
To walk through an empty Mohali
With a fourth day hangover
To see Zaheer - Khan through them
On the fifth

Why do we watch cricket?
We all saw something
And we think we’ll see it again
