I'd be lying if I said my entire life is not dedicated to thinking about, watching and playing cricket. It is a sport which teaches us so many great lessons about life, patience, temprement and good nature.
My team of choice is South Africa... above all others they are fighters, winners and patriots of the most diverse country in the world. Weather they need to score 434 runs in a One Day Match, or to bat two and a half days to save a test, they always show amazing grit, fight and detirmination, and will have my suppourt untill those qualities run dry.
Having said that, I believe it is important to present valid points of views from other teams, and I enjoy watching Australian and New Zealand matches. England and the West Indies are also entertaining teams, but admittidly, I have very little time for the Asian block.
