Then IPL happened in 2008. Suddenly cricket had a new meaning. It became an event of entertainment. The mid week or weekend hangouts with friends, all were around the T-20 cricket. The pubs, lounges, bars were the mini domes where cricket became religion. And young, passionate cricket fans became the lifeline for the sports betting & gambling. Words like sessions, Khaya (bet against), Lagaya (bet for) became part of common dialect.
