Post ICC Cricket World Cup 2011
ICC Cricket World Cup 2011
by: Prateek Gupta

The Cricket world cup is held every four years and is the most eagerly awaited and third most widely viewed sporting event in the world. It is really the pinnacle of achievement in modern day cricket. The fans are already very excited for the commencement of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. There are fourteen teams playing in the event instead of the usual sixteen which makes sure that each team plays around six matches even if the team has some early defeats.

It is great news that the ICC World Cup 2011 has been scheduled to be held in the Asian countries of India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and it is just a week's time before the clash for the title begins.

It is the 10th World Cup and is the first since 1996 to be hosted in India. It is really tough time for people who love to bet as there are as many as four teams India, Sri Lanka, Australia and South Africa, this time, which are looking pretty well to clinch the title. There are a lot of experts who say that India is the most favorite team for this year. The team has been playing extremely well for the past couple of years and is motivated by its captain MS Dhoni and the event ambassador Sachin Tendulkar.

This Cup is surely going to be a big entertainer and thrilling as most of the subcontinent pitches are high scoring pitches. Although, the pitches in the subcontinent favor batting, they are also very supportive of the spin bowlers which clearly showed during the past decade as Champion Australia picked up spinners and more bowlers rather than choosing more batsmen, which may seem like a kind of gambling but in my thoughts was really a brilliant move.

It doesn't matter if you are a cricket fan or not, there is no escape from the engulfing madness. From travel packages to restaurants cafes and Indian city trips, everything is soon going to be served as cricket themed. Personal relationships will also be influenced, in some part, by this craziness. While the love for cricket sometimes unites people from different backgrounds, the upcoming Cricket World Cup 2011 may also lead to rivalry as there is simply no running away from the influence.
