Now there are a lot of sad people who are on BigFooty.

But I don't think there's anybody quite sad to pretend that they're a mediocre international cricketer away from home unironically.
I was about to make the opposite point re: irony, in that Indian humour generally hasn't reached the ironic point yet.

That 1983 World Cup win changed the game, before that game the Indians didn't really give two shiny s***s about one day cricket. The juggernaut really started that day.
Could tie it back to Kapil Dev’s 175 at 6-40 against Zimbabwe. They had one foot in the airport at that stage

Up until then, it was all about fast bowling. India took the pace off the ball and proved you could beat the West Indies.
