Cricket Cacophony

a poem by Pancholi Nandlal Kanjibhai

It’s always a cacophonous crowd
That speaks out loud
When India loses a match
Or a fielder misses a catch
There are over three billion analysts
Who vehemently argue with raised fists
They talk about batting order blunder
Or announce sudden change of player asunder
Many find faults with the coach
And with impunity his private area encroach
“Players are not in form” someone shouts
And loudly asks captain’s whereabouts
The time we waste on analysing cricket
If we invest the same in creative endeavour
India would soon become a superpower!
