    This is hilarious, Religion & Sports have no connection. The two are separate entities, nothing in common.

    Better we tie it round a bat as well, and then the stumps, pads, helmets, and guards too. Why only on a ball ?

    This is very true. Like music cricket is also a great creator of world unity. However much a few players may involve themselves in some confrontation or other on the field, it is soon forgotten in the dressing room and all are friends again. But the most important factor is the comradeship between players of countries that are in loggerheads with each other.
