A routine Sunday afternoon. India-Pakistan cricket Match on television. The mixie whirrs in the kitchen. The fans in all rooms at full-speed.

Shoaib Akhtar bowls to Sachin Tendulkar. He lofts the ball, and it flies over to the boundary line. Inzamam runs toward it, lumbering real close to the ropes. He is about to catch it, but the ball might just miss him and hit the stands....
Suddenly, silence. Everything comes to a stop.

Nitin: Shit!

Dad: Now only current is gone!
