When I was young...
Sports race? Never won.
Dance competition? Got 2 left legs.
College Debate? Don’t even ask!
I mean, I have never really won a challenge. Even after all that, I tried cracking the UPSC exams (just like 78098 other people) and it’s been 2 years, I cracked my soul but not the UPSC.
But these are not the only challenges. I came across these cricket challenges which are equally tough.
Check them out.
1. Shortest Match Ever!
Did you know only 17.2 overs were bowled and England ended up scoring 32-0. Now that's something to think about!
2. Save Your Wickets Because Muttiah Will Take ‘Em
Can you imagine the closest that anyone could come to this record was Shane Watson who is still 346 wickets behind! Talk about unreal goal expectations!
3. Age Is Just A Number, Dost!
I don’t how Wilfred did it because I am 25 and I want to retire already! #MilennialProblems
4. East Ho Ya West, Sachin Bhai Is The Best
How can anyone even forget that moment when Sachin finally hit his 100th international century! It’s still so fresh in our memories and also in the record book because nobody has been able to break it yet!
5. Australia Took ‘De Dhana Dhan’ Quite Literally!
They didn’t just win the ICC World Cup once but thrice! Now that’s a tough act to follow.
6. Who Run The World? GIRLS!
You know who was the first one to do that? Sachin Tendulkar, but he did it at the age of 16 years and 214 days whereas Shafali was 15 years 267 days.
I don’t know about you but when I actually clear my UPSC exams, I will get my bats out, balls ready, sip on some Royal Challenge sports drink and try breaking at least one of them.
