What a weekend ! As I write this little entry, I am damn excited about the Cricket World Cup which will be starting in an hour 😀 .
Like the old days, I think the streets will be emptier again…with people hooked onto the matches involving their favourite teams.
Add your own competition to the mix & it gets even more exciting.
I enrolled myself in theESPN Cricinfo Fantasy League competition. It makes for a superb platform to play alongside the pros as well as your own friends with whom you can setup your own private leagues.
As always, I have kept my computer ready for the multi-tasking to be done during the match with an addon to keep track of whats going on (if I am not near the TV). It should be helpful for those who are unlucky enough to have office policies in which all cricket sites are blocked 😦 .
Chrome Addon : ESPN Cricinfo
Firefox Addons : ESPN Cricinfo , CMDN.com
Also got a great World Cup schedule pic as my wallpaper :
I am glad that ESPN – Star Sports are the broadcasters this time. The other channels always tend to irritate the viewers with TV ads placed right on the pitch
Lastly my own thoughts on the Cricket World Cup :
I hope India wins it. It will be Sachin’s last world cup & the team’s desire to achieve it for the country & for him is touching indeed.
If not, then its time to immerse myself more in the ESPN cricket competition 😛
