Cricket World Cup Fever. . . . . from Down Under

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 !

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!

 

Are there any Cricket fans from my readership?  Tell me your thoughts. . . . 

This Is Incredible India!
