Famous Cricket fan a CricTracker Tribute: Cricket is just not a game played by 22 cricketers and 2 umpires in a cricket field. Thousands and Millions of other people are associated with this great sport. Fans make the majority of it. They laugh, they cry, get nervous, pray, swear and even fight in support of their favorite teams and players. Some of these fans are such die-hard fans that they never miss a single over or even a ball of the matches that involve their supporting teams. Some fans are too absorbed that they even give regular visits to stadiums and even travel abroad in support. Then there are some fans, who would dress fancy or paint their parts of body in patriotic colors and would watch every single match among the crowds in the stadium, follow their team around the globe and become an ‘essential patriotic figure’ of the team’s manuscript. They are ardent, staunch, blunt and emotional in their support.
CricTracker pays its rich tribute to such ardent followers of their national teams and players.
