Cricket World Cup 2011: Chak De India

March 31, 2011

What an awesome semi-final game! And most importantly, India won the game and are now in the finals of Cricket World cup which will be played in Mumbai against Sri Lanka. I have been a bit delayed in posting about the game as I was sleeping most of yesterday after being awake all night to watch the India Pakistan semi-final game. For people who don’t know much about cricket, World cup is organized every four years, just like FIFA world cup and the 10th edition of cricket world cup is being currently held and co-hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Cricket World cup is the 3rd most watched sporting event across the globe after FIFA world cup and summer Olympics. So that must give you some idea of how big the event is. Being immensely popular  in the second largest populated country in the world helps in adding to the viewership numbers. In India cricket is religion, Sachin Tendulkar is god and India-Pakistan World cup game brings both the nations to halt. I did not watch most of the games this time, but did not miss the chance to watch the semi-final game between the arch rivals. The game was not best in terms of quality but it had all the thrills, drama and emotions to keep you at the edge of your seat till the last minute. All the best to “Men in Blue” for the finals and hoping India wins World cup 2011 after a gap of 28 years. It’s high time now. So Go India! Chak De India!
