Small-Town Cricket Talk
Cricket is a religion in India and our town Tiruvallur is no exception. Every Sunday we guys in our locality play cricket from 3 P.M. in the afternoon to about 6:30 P.M. in the evening.
All of us are in the age group of 17-25 years and are very passionate in our love for the game.

Last sunday Silambarasan the fire-brand maverick who is our version of Shoaib Akhtar created a record of sorts when took a hat-trick in the very first over of the match. Adding to his credit, all three batsmen were clean bowled.

Over the years most of us have taken a hat-trick but none of us had mastered the feat in the very first over of a match.

Kudos to Simbu.

Small Town Cricket talk will return next week with news of more records.
