Cricket is a religion is India and the whole country is looking forward to the team winning the world cup. This is a variation of the earlier poem written in 2003.



In cricket, what better achievement can be other than winning the world cup

It being a religion in India, it shall be a national thumbs up


Before the memory of our victory in1983 permanently fades

We have t the opportunity to repeat the feat after more than two decades.


One cannot but help feel a little nostalgic,

It would be really tragic if you are not able to repeat the 1983 world cup magic


That particular world cup had bequeathed on us Indians a legacy

We have again got a chance to show that for us , winning it is no longer just a fantasy.


It does not matter that the Australians are the current world Champions

You have already shown , Rahul what you can do with your companions.


In fact, it seems that on your current form,

It would be a travesty of fate if in the world cup you donít perform.


Whether it is the recent tournaments at home or the victory against the West Indies

The world cup has nor room for complacency, let it not put you at ease.


Unlike some countries which acquire a stray nuke

We have to show to the world that 1983 was no fluke


There is no better way to show your resilience

Then to break the two decade long silence


After a gap of twenty years.

You are once again  the object of the nationís eyes and ears

The whole country is ready to shed happy tears.


Whether in prose or poetry , let it be said aloud.

By winning the world cup, you shall be making the whole country proud.


For you and some colleagues, Rahul, this world cup maybe your last

Please ensure that  memories also last.
