I was definately cricket mad. Dad was a former Sri Lankan cricketer and I remember running home from school to watch test matches on tv at 4 pm. I even kept a scrapbook with cricket pictures that I had cut out from newspapers. Alvin Kallicharan was a favorite of mine, so much so that and I even named my cat after him. Hailing from Guyana and representing the West Indies cricket team, he was a brilliant batsman. Watch this video and see why. Here he destroys the bowling of Dennis Lillee, who at the time was an elite Australian fast bowler.
