World Cup football as we know it

Sports
When millions of hearts flutter as one, then it has to be for a common reason. When it comes to World Cup football, there is no other competition that can even come close to the amount of viewership, as well as the amount of people watching it per second. So, World Cup football is not something that you will be able to realise or understand as a normal sport, rather it is a feeling of emotion, all game that has been able to captivate 32 nations playing the game, and millions of people across the world tuning into it.

Sports
The power, with which Australia has been able to play the Cricket World Cup games in the year of 2015, is definitely noteworthy. However, most of the credit would actually be going to individual players, as they have been able to undergo metamorphosis in the characters that could actually help them win the World Cup. So, players like Steve Smith have definitely been able to provide excellent options to the captain, and has been able to provide excellent performances in the games. In the game against South Africa, he has been able to make a skin, creating 73 runs, which actually added to the total to ensure that they could end up scuttling South Africa. The group stages went excellent for them, and they always ended up on the winning side. He has been able to launch on an overdrive, perf...

Surrey amongst the six counties interested to sign Kevin Pietersen

Sports
For the season of 2015, there are over six counties, including Surrey that would like to sign Kevin Pietersen in the capacity of batsmen. They are looking forward to the release of the cricketer from the Indian Premier League, and since being sacked by the England board in 2014 February, has been contracted by the Indian Premier league. However, Surrey is supposed be one of the favourites that will be able to sign the particular batsmen, so he’s actually look into go for a continuation with a return to the County Cricket. This is probably an attempt in order to get a recall to the England side. Also, the IPL club, Sunrisers has been able to provide the approval of the release.

The players from Chelsea behaved like children- Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Sports
It is safe to say that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a highly respected football player across the world. So, when there is certain news about how tackles have actually been played out in the Chelsea game with PSG, it is very sorry to say that Chelsea did not come out smelling like roses. The Swedish International was actually sent off from the game with a red card, and Chelsea went on to dominate the game, but PSG ended up winning the game due to the away goals. This is actually led to Chelsea been knocked out from the champions league and this is definitely going to create another damper of a year for Chelsea. PSG has been able to survive the last one hour of constant barrage from Chelsea, with only 10 players in the team in order to throw them out from the champions’ league. Most of the

Why 42 Games Are Meaningless This Cricket World Cup

Why 42 Games Are Meaningless This Cricket World Cup

Sports
The 11th Cricket World Cup has just kicked off in Australia and New Zealand with 42 meaningless games and seven important ones of course. But why such? Let us consider what we fans saw in the 2007 edition held in West Indies. The tournament turned to be a financial disaster after team India was out from it at early stage. As an aftermath, fans in millions switched off their TV sets. Indian broadcasters lost advertising revenues in millions. This time, to ensure 2007 is not repeated, the tournament is such designed that the big teams stay in, especially the Indian team. With this millions of cricket fans will stick to their TV sets and advertising revenue will boom. The catch here is to make team India stay in the tournament for longest possible time. There are fourteen participan...
