About a week after I wrote this story, which published May 15, I got a text from Karthik Vepuri inviting me to join in on a cricket practice. Not sure what to expect, I showed up and tried my hand at the sport. Over the course of the summer, I continued to practice with Vepuri and his teammates as my interest in cricket grew. To think it all started with that story I wrote on a quiet, Sunday morning!
