Shanba*, is a good pal and was/is a big part of my ex-cricket team. This is his story.
End of 2005 - Low fitness with "firesticks" lit up most times - Only run he did was running to the firestick- refilling place and obviously the only thing he held in his hand was the "firestick", burning away his lungs!
Middle of 2007 - He lights up the people around with his energy and fitness leves, "firesticks" replaced by the cricket bat in his hand [ that last 60 he scored is a proof!! ] and he burns the road with an hour long jog in the mornings, most days of the week.
Amazing attitude and will to change & improve!! Hats off!
