The World Cup series in Cricket has begun ! Today for my part of the world the meeting of India and Pakistan on the field of a cricket match was a very big deal. Such a better competion and fight than with weapons to settle past and present disputes. We knew little if anything about the game and were amazed that it lasted for 8 hours! That is a day’s work for sure. India was victorious prevailing with over 70 some points over Pakistan. We couldn’t watch it continuously but just off and on but we did see the ending. Glad to report the teams both played well and to win, with no disagreements or altercations. Here in Amdavad, fire crackers began in celebration only moments after the game was complete.
Here are some great pictures that are credited below of the game today!
When the game started it was bright daylight but evening at the end. And I thought Baseball games are long !

Celebration time. . . . .
Glad to see smiles from fans on opposing sides !
Good luck to India as they progress in the tournament which is, by the way, being played until the end of March. Seems as if this is truly another game of the world rivaling football !
The estimated viewing audience today was 1.000.000.000 or 1/7 of the planet’s souls!

Fabulous shots. Feel as if we are there. This looks to be as big as anything we have in the States!
Both soccer and cricket are huge everywhere except the States!

Cricket is big in Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, India, South Africa and England. Australia won by 111 runs. Good pictures. I know these countries and Sri Lanka are crazy for it. But as ‘Oh, the Places We See’ said, Soccer is the World’s biggest sport, 92% of Earth play it. Oh wait, I just said Soccer 😀
Yes, indeed, you did say soccer ! 😎
Enjoyed the game
Thanks so much. It was fun experiencing
Cricket as one of a billion fans!
