You can’t take toys away from a man. Seeing how a new video taking over the internet captures a group of men playing cricket even while surrounded by gallons of water and nothing else, the saying surely has some truth to it.
Men use Epic Jugaad to play cricket in the sea
Well, it is true that in India, cricket is much more than just a sport. It makes and breaks relationships, and people often take the sport too seriously, leading to its untouchable status in the country.
Considering the cricket craze in India, a clip of a group of men playing the sport on a boat while surrounded by an ocean of water quickly went viral on Twitter. The most fascinating thing about the video was not that the men were playing cricket on an open boat, but rather that they were not worried about losing the ball to the waves of the water, as even the batsman did not hold back his full speed.
The men, assumed by the internet to be Indians, used an epic game to avoid losing the ball in the sea. They hooked the cricket ball to a rope, which they then tied to a railing on the ship’s deck. They used a very clever trick not to lose the ball when the batter hits it with all his force.
Each time the batsman swung his bat with full force and sent the ball flying, the bowler simply yanked on the string and brought the ball back from the depths of the water.
