India is a nation that takes cricket extremely seriously. In fact, so seriously that the sport often holds a place with all the religions practised in the country. Now that the ICC World Cup has come to a halt with West Indies taking the trophy, cricket enthusiasts have found yet another obsession: The upcoming T20 league.
Since the format of 20 overs is so appealing (and aggressive), the matches are nothing less than nail-biting sessions. The length of each match is short, unlike ODIs which runs for hours. So if you are a true T20 cricket enthusiast, here’s what you must do:
1. Take An Off From Work:
Depending upon when your team is playing and at what time, you must plan your leaves at work. Since the duration is not more than 3-4 hours, you got to make sure that you don’t miss out on a single over because anything can happen in just 6 balls!
2. Place Bets With Your Friends:
Of course, where’s the fun if you don’t place (sometimes unreasonable) bets with your friends or even family members? All T20 fans know that the matches keep them on their toes. There’s no guarantee you will win the bet that’s the exciting part!

3. Stay Away From Non-T20 Lovers:
Yup. You are an enthusiast but if your partner is not, then you maintain a distance. Send her with her friends or give her a gift spa coupon. The T20 season is important to you and you must not ruin it for yourself at any cost!
4. Form Your Own HE Scream Squad:
This is something that has got the entire nation talking about. Form a team of five with your friends – your own Scream Squad – record a video cheering for your favourite team and trash talking the opposition. Go to hescreamsquad.com to submit your entry. What’s better than the chance to be the ultimate sledger?

5. Watch At Least One Match in The Stadium:
If it is in your city or near it, you must go and be a part of the madness at least once during the entire season. Cheering for your team in the traditional way gives an awesome feeling, isn’t it?
Are you really a T20 enthusiast? If yes, then let us know what all you (and your friends) do when the T20 season is on. Also, have you participated in the HE Scream Squad yet? It’s an amazing opportunity to show how crazy you are about the sport by being the ultimate sledger.
