The Chennai Connection – Arun Kumar Manickavasagam

Cricket has been my passion since childhood days. No matter which team played, I would sit for hours in front of the television set listening to commentary intently and watching the gentleman’s game. I loved all formats of the game. With time, my love for cricket grew so much that I wouldn’t even change uniforms and go play tennis ball cricket right after school with my street friends.
