Love Lost And Found
Feb 23, 2020 Season 2 Episode 4
Shourov, Brian and Abhik

Abhik brings in what seems to be an obscure game between India and Australia during the famous "Monkeygate" series of 2008. There was plenty of drama both on and off the field, with racially charged sledging, batsmen being hit and seesawing results between these two iconic teams. The boys agree that cricket in the 2000s was losing its mojo, but Abhik recounts his joy at encountering Rohit Sharma for the first time in this game and how it rekindled his love for the game. Whether it's sport, music or any other passion in life, it's always possible to light the flame - and sometimes it is the next generation that inspires us. We sign off this week with this hopeful message, that love lost can always be found again!
