Cricket Anyone?

Well, the moment you’ve all been waiting for has arrived.  The Cricket World Cup Final is here!

Yes, it starts up on Saturday at 2:30pm LOCAL time in Mumbai, India – which means, for us East Coasters, it starts sometime in the middle of the night.   Bangladesh, India takes on Sri Lanka in what is bound to be a grueling… match? contest?  game?  Ok, let’s just call it a tournament.  But, before you say, “is anybody really watching this?”, you should know that it has the 3rd largest TV audience, behind Soccer’s World Cup, and the Summer Olympics, with something like 2.2 Billion viewers.  I guess when your country is playing in it, and hosting it, all 1 Billion of your fellow countrymen will likely be watching.  I mean, what else is there to do?  The weather forecast for the tournament is an unseasonably warm 27 degrees (Celsius, of course) under SMOKEY skies.  Perhaps officials should consider closing the retractable roof.

Stumpy, the World Cup Mascot says, host India will beat Sri Lanka by 13 runs.  But don’t mortgage your sacred cow on that prediction.  I don’t even know how this game is played!

    I am so excited for the match. My favorite player is Sachin Tendulkar. Do like Mahendra Singh Dhoni as well. He is from my home Jharkhand and my family knows him. My brother works at Wankhede Stadium, I will try to join him for the match. Please do the needful and cheer India to victory.
