Pune Diaries Part 2 – 27.11.2021

Click here to read part 1 of this post.

From the Southern Command War Memorial, it was now time to move to my next destination. Transportation in Pune can be an issue and I had to face this first-hand. Perhaps this is the only city where you book an Ola and then get a message that your ride has been cancelled by the driver. After my first ride got cancelled, I booked another and this time was lucky to be picked up by the driver.

Blades of Glory Cricket Museum

If cricket is a religion, then this museum is a pilgrimage site for cricket enthusiasts. Located on the 3rd floor of a residential complex, this place contains a treasure trove of cricketing memorabilia right from autographed cricket bats to the jerseys of various teams.

Reaching there

What to expect?

Spread over 5000 sq feet inside a residential complex, the museum is a treasure trove of memorabilia collected from the world over.

The artefacts include personally autographed cricket-related items by the who’s who of the gentleman’s game. From autographed memorabilia from the 5 triple centurions in test cricket to signed bats from all the world cup winners right from 1975.

There’s a lot more but I feel that it’s better to visit the museum and take a look around rather than reading about it. The memories will stay with you forever.

Inside the Museum

After a hectic day, it was time to say goodbye to the beautiful city of Pune. The Indrayani Express was waiting to take me home back to Mumbai.

Hope you liked this post. Until next time, Good Bye and take care.
