The Cricket World Cup season is upon us. And if you’re all about watching every single game with your friends/family, you’ll relate to this post. Every cricket season, we see different see sides of your favourite sports personality – and the fans who are supporting them.
Suddenly, you’ll find your aunt asking you questions about Virat Kohli, your girlfriend shopping online for India’s cricket jersey, or perhaps your Football-lover boss enquiring about who won the previous day (just to participate in the conversations of course).
So next time you’re at a cricket match screening – whether at home or in a pub – observe around to see if you can find these peculiar fan personalities or perhaps identify yourself like one! If you’re looking for comfortable seating solutions for your next match screening party at home, we suggest you browse through Furlenco. More on this below.
So, let’s begin. By the by, who’s keeping score?
The One Who Knows Everything.
We all have that one person in the group who seems to know it all. From match scores that happened in 1952 to Sachin’s runs up to the decimal point – you know what we mean. Sure, they may know the game inside out but talking about random cricket facts (especially in between ad breaks) typically go as a bouncer (pun intended) over everyone’s head. After all, no one really cares about stuff like which country manufactured the cricket ball or perhaps how tall the grass is on the cricket field! Equating this type of fan to the Furlenco universe, this means you’ll probably want to rent our “Full Home” collection – it has everything you’ll need and more. You’ll never have to second-guess your choices with this collection because every piece is thoughtfully-curated with years of expertise and skills all rolled into one.
The One Who Always Prays.
They watch cricket matches through God’s eyes – quite literally in this case. They spend more time in the home temple than their living room because they’re too busy praying for a win. Let’s not kid ourselves, we’ve all been there done that. If you can associate yourself with this type of cricketing behaviour, chances are we’d also find you praying for special deals when it comes to buying heavy-duty furniture. Congratulations, the Gods have answered your prayers. Browse through Furlenco’s “Special Deals” section for exclusive deals on trendy furniture. Not sure about the match but here you’ll definitely emerge as the winner.
If you find someone sitting in one place for hours on end – without even getting up for loo breaks despite chugging down 4 beers, you’ve found the superstitious one. There are some who wear the same set of clothes in every match, whereas others go about the day EXACTLY as the day their team won. This includes eating the same food, showering for exactly 3.5 mins, you get the drift right? The superstitious fans are also known to be general sceptics. It’s no mean feat to impress them, hence we suggest our “Award-Winning” collection for them. It’s tried-and-tested and has great reviews (DRS or otherwise), there’s absolutely no room for any errors here.
The Angry Young Fan.
If you hear curse words and long promises like “I’ll never watch cricket again” from someone who never swears and is known to be shy when their team loses, you’re in the company of the angry young fan. They’re emotional, impulsive, and extremely passionate about the game and perhaps everything else in their life. To such fans, we present the “Vibrent Collection” which is sure to win their hearts and stand up to all their demanding claims. The collection comes with custom-made furniture that’s innovative and practical. All in all, it’s the brainchild of passionate young minds that understand the furnishing needs of today and tomorrow.
The One Who Knows Nothing about Cricket but Watches only the World Cup Series.
They’re a majority lot if you ask us. Giving in to peer pressure and worldly demands, they cave in and watch the matches – albeit with little interest. Every five minutes, you’ll see them opening the Instagram app or messaging on Whatsapp to stay awake (maybe?). Say hello to the fans who only watch the World Cup series. For them, we present the “Most Popular” collection seeing they like going with the general consensus. This collection houses some of our best-selling pieces. In cricketing parlance, the collection is essentially the “player of the series.”
Whatever your cricket-fan type maybe, there’s something for everyone at Furlenco. Enjoy World Cup 2019 true Furlenco style with the best seats in the house.
