ICC Cricket World Cup 2015
Cricket is not just a sport for the country, it’s a religion. A sport with so many hopes and dreams attached, Cricket has been an important part of the history of the country. Every 4 years, the ICC World Cup is organized as a platform to exhibit the best performances of the teams representing their countries. It’s 2015 and the World Cup is back!
Scheduled to begin on 14th of February, the ICC World Cup 2015 is being hosted jointly this year by Australia and New Zealand. 14 teams, 49 matches and over a month of non-stop display of sportsmanship, hard work and talent, this ICC World Cup is bound to keep everyone in the country attached to their TV sets at home because this is not something anyone would want to miss.
After emerging victorious in the 2011 World Cup, the expectation from the Indian Cricket Team is massive and the pressure is going to be at an all-time high. In a country where people close down their shops early to be at home in order to catch the game, the Indian cricket team is really expected to demonstrate a good form and win the cup again.
The competition is bound to get tough along the way with teams such as Australia, England, South Africa, New Zealand and Pakistan. The 2015 ICC World Cup will be one of the largest international sports tournaments, with 14 competing teams and more than 400 accredited players and officials taking part in it.
As defending champions, India has a lot on stake. The tickets to the Pool B match between India and Pakistan on 15th February were reportedly sold out within 12 minutes. So cancel all your plans from 14th of February, because the ICC World Cup 2015 is finally here! Get ready to cheer for your country.
