The Doors Are Open For All




Cricket World Cup

Cricket World Cup

Gone are the days where the World Cup and Australians were complementing each other. Recent match results were so awakening to the reality, the reality is nothing but the teams which were assumed to be at the ground level soared in their performances, pre-established teams faced a bitter downfall.

We are used to lot of helicopter-shots but if there is a man beneath ready to crush the trajectory of the ball, then The Nemesis Falls.

Bets made for the top few countries need to be revisited for a clever prediction. If you are betting a fortune with your clique, caution. This season on World Cup is like the silent waves prior to a tsunami attack.

15 matches have gone by, with gush on the adrenaline on seeing several nail-biting moments.

Like expecting the unexpected, here are the few clutching moments from the last fifteen matches.

  1. The inaugural match, no post without the legendary match held at Mirapur on 19th of February. Indians won by 87 runs, tasting the glorious victory against Bangladesh. The taste also has a tinge of revenge mixed glory in it.
  2. Canada, the new entrant has been facing successive failures. The think-tank team of the Canadians is yet to figure out the strategy by the next World Cup. Good Luck!
  3. This is my favorite. The iconic match between the Lankans and the Pakistanis. If SL team seems to be in equilibrium, the turmoil from the PAK hit them hard at their home soils on 26th February. The tenth match in the season was won by Pakistan, carrying it to the top position in the points table.
  4. Tie It! A match gets tied very rarely. India vs England was one of a kind match. Even a score of 338 was not sufficient to play safe. Perhaps the score should be benchmarked to 350+ to play with a sigh of relief. Berating of the England team was a biggest mistake of the century; Strauss proved all his pulse by hitting hard. It was sad that India and England, neither could win despite Sachin’s and Strauss’s willow magic.
  5. An alarm ring for the Group B happened on 2nd March, the fifteenth match. England vs Ireland at Bangalore. It is probably the jinxed pitch of Bangalore that is highly unfavorable to the England. (Any pre-independence deeds of the English taking its vengeance?). It proved null results by making the match tied, this one with a failure. The target was not low, a good score of 327.

Moral: All teams who were in the probable list of getting in the Quarter finals beware. Well composed team like Sri Lanka can also lose to the team with new comers like Pakistan. All-batting team with struggling bowlers like India can be in the verge of losing to England despite the target being high.

The match between India vs Ireland is expected to be a thriller, as extrapolating from the previous results.

Don’t miss the India vs Ireland, the 22nd match of the season. (Apparently it is scheduled at Bangalore. Will it prove favorable for Ireland as it was on 2nd March or bewitched my making it a tie like the 11th match?)
