Cricket World Cup

Some time after I regained my consciousness, the  Cricket World Cup started.  In normal times I will know the dates of all important matches but now I was not even sure of the month, leave alone what was going on in the world.

The doctors suggested that it would be a good idea to let me watch the matches.  Accordingly, a television was fitted in my room.  When I was asked if I could see clearly, I replied in the negative.  So the colour, contrast, position etc were adjusted but I still couldn't see clearly. I knew what the problem was but I couldn't convey it.  After a while  somebody realised what the problem was - I was not wearing my glasses!

After I got my glasses it was much better. Although I had some problems because I still had double vision. Watching two Tendulkars essaying a cover drive was not as satisfying as watching one but it was much better than watching nothing.
