Started with cricket, hated football. Once played it for time-pass and got totally hooked. The sheer passion in field is awesome. Closely followed by rugby and then lawn tennis-cricket.

Among the adventure sports, white water rafting and rock climbing or rappelling. Have to try sky diving and bungy (ooops got butterflies in stomach)

Played basketball for school. Too lazy to move quick enough to take it further! Also played table tennis somewhat decently.

But first love will always be tennis. Poetry in motion. The sport is an art.

Talking umm

i luv a lot of sports and can watch 90% of what i c with some exceptions like GOLF, RUGBY and Baseball

Used to be pretty gud volleyball player and was quite gud in many other sports also. Now have lost touch with all of them and whenever i try them once in a while, i can feel all my body parts complaining for a couple of days

There shud have been an option of choosing multiple sports.

Hurry Home

Surprising! Even in a cricket-mad country not a perceptible tilt towards the game in this community.

I am more of a watcher than a player. So in terms of watching, I love cricket, tennis and football (soccer, and not the goofy US version) - in that order.

well in terms of spectator sports it is cricket, typical Indian game - slow& lazy, spread over a day (or 5 days) and total time pass. Also watch Lawn tennis, Soccer, Hockey. For playing used to be active in a lot of them - soccer in school, played Squash, baddy, TT, snooker, billiards, bridge in college..

seeing the list now it seems I studied a lot less
