A resounding reply in the affirmative!
To be frank, I was very much prejudiced before about English, Aussie and Pak teams and fans! Well, as of now, disrespect for SOME OF THEM (Ben Dover and Al Bino retain their quota of disgrace! Lmao!) is nowhere to be found in my lexicon of emotions!
I have got an amazing overview of other cricketing nations, their fans and their expectations! This section has given me a chance to see the other cricket teams through their fans' eyes! (Its not everyday you end up meeting a foreign fan!)
Though there are some trolls here who we run into time and again, we know whose opinion really matters and complementing their efforts with those of our own, has truly been an invigorating experience! Though it hasn't even been 2 months here, radical changes in insight towards non-Indians are almost tangible to me! It has become like a group of friends or companions or whatever you want to label! (At least for me) Cricket has been the catalyst, sort of! :p
Thus, I would only like to say that it has been a great experience here, understanding others from varied countries and the outlook of the prevailing cricket sense here!
