Default Cricketing superstitions

“A superstition is the belief that events are influenced by specific behaviors, without having a causal relationship.”

Everybody has something or the other that they follow unconsciously.The game cricket is also no exception.

Indo-Pak cricket in the ‘80s and ‘90s was full of superstition — like playing a Friday final meant Pakistan’s win was a given, while a Saturday schedule
suited the Indians.

Some of the famous superstitions held by the cricketers :-

•Sanath Jayasuriya clearly pats his pad and adjusts his helmet after every ball he faces.
•Mahela Jayawardena always kisses his bat after every stroke.
•Sachin Always wears his left pad first, and still uses the old buckle type pads.
•Steve Waugh always carried a Red handkerchief given to him by his late grandfather.
•Jimmy Ammarnath also carried a Red handkerchief in his pocket while fielding.
•Ganguly always carries a photo of Guruji while batting.
•Atherton would never give an interview if he was 'not out' overnight.
