Cricket fans clearly remember the drubbing dished out by the Englishmen to the Boys in Blue on English soil. One would have to go back a long way to remember when India last faced defeat by such a margin. Of course, cricket being India’s national passion the result of that series did rankle and leave a bad taste in the mouth. As fate had it, India were scheduled to take on the English in India not long after that ill fated series was scheduled to conclude. In a way that was providence, and it didn’t take long for the India media and fans to label this home series “the Payback Series”. Even a blind man could see that name was coming from a million miles away!
KyaZoonga and cricket goes back a long way, even serving fans as recently as the IPL 2011 and the ICC Cricket World Cup. Unsurprisingly, many fans were writing in to us before the series even began asking us about availability of tickets for the 5 match ODI series and the lone T20 to be held in Kolkata. We’re pleased to say that we delivered, and how! We managed to list tickets for every single game online and the response from fans for tickets was overwhelming. We had to add categories of tickets in order to cater to the demand that was cropping up from all corners of India. Rather than curbing the appetite of the average Indian for cricket, the recent defeat in England only served to whet everyone’s appetite for the beautiful game and we are thrilled to see that our love for the game stills burns bright!
We thank you all for choosing KyaZoonga.com, and as we write this post India has won the series 5-0 with the Kolkata T20 left to be played. Let’s hope the Boys in Blue make a clean sweep of it, just like we have!
