With India all set to play against the West Indies, CS talks to a cricket fan, Shazahn Padamsee:

Form fare
I enjoy watching the ODIs and T20 format. They bring a lot of excitement, especially when India plays, because I am a true patriot at heart. Unfortunately, till now, I've never got the chance to watch a match live in a stadium. I'm praying that I'll soon get to watch the game live and experience the thrill with thousands of other cricket fans.

Not just for fun
Today, even the women follow cricket like never before. And I believe most of them are either fans of the game or the players. No Indian, whether a man or a woman, can watch cricket just for time-pass. We all know how Indians worship cricket. Even my interest in cricket has only developed in recent years post IPL gained momentum. My friends and I had a super time watching the World Cup this year. We were so excited when the Indian team brought home the Cup!

Personal favourites
Sachin Tendulkar:  As rightly called 'The God Of Cricket', Sachin happens to be one of my favourite sportsman too. He's not only a great leader, but a great team player too.

Jacques Kallis: He's a very stylish player. Jacques is an all rounder when it comes to the game.

M S Dhoni: He's the best captain India has ever had. I love how he plays so effortlessly and his decisions are always bang on!

Daniel Vettori: He has a very cool persona and is very attractive.

Kumar Sangakkara: He is stylish on and off the field and is known to be among the most aggressive players in international cricket, which is what I love about him.

Sexy and why
Mitchell Johnson: Mitchell Johnson is a complete package. He's got a sexy tattoo, he looks great and those dimples only add to his charm!

Brett Lee: Well, Brett not only plays cricket well, but also sings and plays the guitar beautifully. I wish he could dedicate a song to me too (laughs out loud).
