There are very events in the world which can topple the human heart and mind as easily as this year’s World cup… “First ball of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011..from Shafiul Islam to Virender Sehwag…smashed past extra cover and it’s a boundary…WHAT A BEGINNING !!… 1..2..3.. the cricket world cup has finally kicked off with a blast !! The most awaited and the first blockbuster event of the decade is finally here…Its most welcome anticipation across the globe, especially, in the fourteen participatin gnations of which four were associate nations. Two groups, group A and group B were to form seven teams each. Group A would have Pakistan, Australia, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Canada battling it out.

Finally, the Mega tournament of Cricket has arrived at its Destination. What comes out of this 43 day Voyage is the Excitement and Jingoism of some less than 1.2 billion Indian Population (Less than 1.2 billion because there are some Anti- Indian supporters who according to me should be chased out of the country) and apthy of other supporters who were disappointed at last.
The buzz was created all before the World Cup and the stage was set for Team India.Lets not dig into the failures of India, as being positive, as the World Champions, all the failures were overlapped by the mighty success, all of which mattered the most, at last.
True. This World Cup is for the Master Tendulkar. What a moment! The Extreme Moment of exultation, Team India filled with jubliance, the matter of Pride, the feeling of ecstasy on the faces, the time when Gary Kirsten became an Indian, the time when Sachin was carried all over the stadium and above all, Dream of a billion people coming true!
But, all of a sudden, we might have to turn our eye balls to some match fixing and money making in the business for the next 55 days. Yeah, the Indian Profit League kicks its mega “Money Making” journey soon on April 8th.
So, its time for us to enjoy non- stop Movie kind of Entertainment every day till May 28th. Don’t expect some Cricketing action going on, but some thing which takes away your time. Its not going to be like the World Cup what so ever, here is our IPL with no jingosim but a time where every dog will have its day, every Tom, Dick and Harry will get a chance score runs and take wickets. Nothing more! But yes, it is going to be good.
Some unknown players will play, New players will handle pressure, Match winners will be discovered and above all a team will be crowned to Champions. Along with all, money well be made. Enjoy the so called “Bharat Bandh”. May the best team playing win.
