It is said that in India, cricket is not just a sport, it's a religion. It is followed by people from all walks of life, who passionately look forward to the cricketers and consider them as idols.
The game of cricket is arguably the one which kids, right from their childhood, start playing and dream of representing the country on the international stage. It's a game which transcends religion, class, status or gender and is loved by all.
Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif, on Monday, tweeted one such video which told the tale of how popular the game of cricket is.
In the 27-second video, a child can be seen batting as his mother bowls. The toddler smashes the plastic ball to the side of a busy road, the boundary.
"Mother bowling, child batting. Just one word - Beautiful": Kaif wrote along with the video.

On Sunday, Kaif had garnered a lot of appreciation on social media after he posted an image on Twitter with batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, who was termed as 'Lord Krishna' in it.
"My Sudama moment with Lord Krishna," the former Uttar Pradesh skipper had captioned the image, drawing huge applause on social media for his humility.
