“It was a foolish move to drop KL Rahul” was my argument for the nth time. The debate continued for almost 30mins with neither of us willing to leave our stand. When you travel in Mumbai local trains – cricket enthusiasts like me will always be debating about what ifs! With no end in sight, I quietly excused myself out of it to get some peace of mind – only to be pulled up into another discussion. “You know what would be my dream 11 – Indian batsman and Pakistan bowlers. Just imagine 2003 World Cup – Sachin- Sehwag opening the batting and Wasim- Waqar opening the bowling.” This point came up whenever Dad and I spoke about cricket. The thought of having a team where all the possible gaps are filled is a dream come true. A Dream 11 to take on the cricketing world! What a fantasy!
