Oh no!

I have some bad news for you lot. The people over at World Cricket Watch think this is an exciting blog. They even put me in a list of 40 Most Exciting Cricket Blogs. There I am sitting pretty amongst names like CWB, 99.94, King Cricket, BCC!, Thoughts from the Dustbin, SOAL, Cricket=Action=Art, Poshin's World, SarahCanterbury, Swanning About, Test Match Sofa, Iain O' Brien, The Boundary Rider, The Old Batsman and many more. (This list is almost as long as the original one...!)

It's an abomination, I know. But since this is the first list that I have been a part of and probably the last, I will gladly take it. I also like the description they put of me, mainly because I've never heard anyone sum up this blog before. I myself take everything there is about cricket and fuck it up badly, so I can't really put a description. But this is what it may be:

Exploring the phenomenon that is cricketing celebrity, Cricket Minded goes beyond the boundary into some of the cricketing social circles that others can only dream of.

Damn IPL pictures have turned me into TMZ. But what the hell eh? At least I am the only blog to have a cricketer shake his ass on their home page.

I do have to warn you that this means I am going to be even more obnoxious and swear at the cricketers I dislike a lot more. Or I may get increasingly worse as more people come here to be "excited". Then you all will need to escape, so I suggest you go over and look at the other 39 blogs on the list. There are some pretty great ones out there and one day they will definitely help you recover from the psychological disorder that is Cricket Minded.

Oh, that sums it up pretty nicely doesn't it?
