|Born to Play, Forced to Work|

The MPL has seen some wonderful players over the years. Its heart whelming to see folks play with passion, forget their mundane chores and contribute in whatever way they can. It comes with sacrifice of time and energy, but let's accept we love this game.
This article is dedicated to someone who "Prasoonifies" cricket. This guy thinks of his batting and bowling when he does not get sleep at night. He plays across formats in MidWest with elan and never gets tired. He made his wife get his cricket kit as a separate check-in luggage and did not want anything else from India. He comes up with weird ideas of capcaincy, I smile at that idea and let him do whatever he feels like.
A crazy batting average of 32 , strike rate of 200, bowling average of 20 is a reason for opponents to plan for this beast, and why not ? His guidance and temperament has helped us as a playing unit to enjoy the game even more.
Today was a unique situation. We had our Quater Final match against our friends- Stallions who have the best bowling line up in MPL 2016. For some key Unicorn players though, there was a major deployment and were unavailable for the match. Prasoon too was part of this, somehow managed the deployment with help of friends, played the match, won the Man of the Match award and humbly went back to office to complete the professional need. That is special and speaks volumes of the passion, patience and dedication he possesses. With the tournament drawing to an end, I hope as a team we live upto his expectations.
20 years down the lane, I'm pretty sure you'll continue to play this wonderful game with your kid for whatever team you are associated with :-)
