  1. Over 30 years back, First Division league had a super following from the cricket fans of Chennai. I have done ground hopping from Marina to Chepauk to University Union to Vivekananda to watch players like Venkat, TE Sreenivasan, K Srikkanth, T A Sekhar, Bharathkumar, W V Raman, NP Madhavan, R Madhavan, Bharat Reddy (father of cine star Shreya Reddy) and our own Triplicane hero S R Sampath who played for Southern Railways in the 1st division league.

    We used to have a full house crowd at Marina to watch matches involving top teams like Alwarpet, India Pistons, State Bank, IOB etc.

    Ram: Also the Soma Ground group (off Usman Road Tnagar) had / has a big cricket community.
