“I’m definitely going to watch every match whenever India is playing. Unfortunately, there’s no chance I will be able to make it for any of the matches at the stadiums but whichever restaurant or bar is showing them live,I’ll be watching them there for sure.”
— Ralph Fernandes, 26
“Well first off, whereever I am, I will be avidly following the score on www.espncricinfo.com from my phone or computer. I don’t know where I’ll be watching the matches yet as it completely depends on where my friends are going but probably most of them I will watch from home. I may step out for a couple, especially the finals.”
— Rohinton Daruwala, 31
