I play football every Saturday and Sunday morning. Here's a rough demographic of this football group: being Bangalore, most of the 'boys' are software professionals, mid-career or thereabouts; I think we're all married; some have kids (I have a dog). Now, let's say we were almost all born before 1980, and it would be fair to assume that the first 15-odd years of our sports watching were focused on cricket. After all, before the mid-1990s, we had little access to big-ticket European or world football on TV.
I went to play wearing a replica jersey of the Indian limited-overs team once; it has my name embossed on the back. One of the boys asked me if I'd represented India at some stage, perhaps just warmed the bench for one match at, maybe, the Under-15 level or something. I asked casually if he would hang around playing football with me if he had played cricket for India. His reply, equally casual, was that he was happy never to have played much cricket.
I took it to mean that he disliked cricket in general. And this was well before the latest spot-fixing story. Each to his own.
