The lumpenisation of the cricket fan is not a new phenomenon. Over the years, several sub-continental teams have had to face the wrath of the street. From Ajit Wadekar in 1974 to Wasim Akram in 1996 to Rahul Dravid in 2007, the sub-continent spectator's love-hate relationship with his cricketing idols has seen periodic bouts of public anger spill out onto the road. The difference in recent years is that the manic behaviour of the so-called fan has been magnified by round the clock media coverage of the game.
