Do you remember the first cricket match you went for? Mine was at the R Premadasa Stadium in 2002 during the Champions Trophy. It was crazy! You just don't realise how huge the stadium and the lights are and how loud and exciting the cheering is at the ground when you watch on TV.

I fell asleep through most of my first match experience. I had too much of the cheap beer and too many sausages on the grill at SSC.

My First Match

I havent been to many live matches either,Ive been following them on TV since my childhood,
My first match was Ind vs SL in the Compaq cup at Premadasa,but Ill never forget it since SL made 300+ with Jayasuriya getting 98 and Kandamby finishing brilliantly getting 92 and then India folded dramatically with Angelo Mathews getting 6 wickets,it was truly unforgettable,I ws sitting in a part of the stadium with many boisterous Indian fans,but towards the end of the match many of them had mysteriously disappeared ;)
