The World Cup is unofficially underway, with a few practice matches already having taken place, and the first league game less than a week away. The experts can argue about the relevance of ODI matches today, but there is nothing like a World Cup to get cricket fever going. Anyway, here are some final points before the tournament opener begins:
- For those interested in playing the Cricinfo World Cup Fantasy game, do log in, create a team and join my league ‘Cricophiles United’ and enter the pin 1020.
- For those inclined towards predicting the outcomes of the games, you can play Cricket Pick’em, where you can join my league at ‘Cricophiles United’.
- Do check a few articles I wrote on other blogs/sites regarding the World Cup about (1) my favorite World Cup memories, (2) England’s World Cup chances and (3) the players to watch out for at the World Cup (though the last two are affected by Eoin Morgan’s withdrawal).
And lastly, I am searching for some good cricket blogs which focus on New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, West Indies and Bangladesh. If you know any, please let me know.
