We don’t think it would be an exaggeration to say that most Indians are cricket fans by default! Cricket in India is not just a game but is devotion, it is a religion here. We have our idols. We have our heroes. We have our inspirations.

But when exactly this sport turned larger than life in our country? The love for cricket and cricket players goes centuries back! It was in 1725, people were spotted playing a friendly cricket match at a seaport in Kutch. And then there started the beginning of epic moments, a landmark set records, countless first and last catches, dramas, chases, spectacular performances, tributes, and whatnot.

The match played just 80 km. near Ahmedabad during those times, triggered the formation of Gujarat Cricket Association to keep alive the legacy of this legendary game!
