In my teen and pre teen days, I was a cricket enthusiast. In addition to doing the usual thing line playing it and listening to its radio commentary, I was also into maintaining cricket records. Personal computers were obviously not invented them, and I kept my records manually on registers. I had several thick registers with me, and the scores of all test matches played til them was available with me, and I had collected all these records by painstakingly culling records from many publications. When a new test match began (that was the only form of international cricket back then), I already knew what record was likely to get made in that match. Those were the days when centuries, especially centuries by Indian cricketers were rare. Also, hitting sixes was a rare phenomenon. One Indian player called Salim Durrani had hit a six sometime in 1972 and based on that one six, he was touted in Indian magazines as Mr Sixer.

These days, I no longer maintain cricket records. We already have such records being maintained by professional cricket sites. But I find that these days I am maintaining similar records for Hindi movie songs that I am discussing.
