Cricket has come a long way since it was considered just to be another game, among the numerous games that people love to play and follow. Since early days cricket has been known as the game of gentleman and till date the game has qualities that make it the game more and popular. Cricket is not popular among all the countries of the world, but in countries where the game is popular fans follow the game like a religion. In fact cricket players in some of these countries are worshipped like gods. The game today is played by many countries of the world and the major tournament that all teams want to win in cricket is World cup. The event is organized by the international cricket council or ICC the world wide recognized governing body of cricket. This event is held after every four years.
Games played some certain teams are hugely seeked after by fans. A cricket match that is played against India and Pakistan has a different excitement and feel altogether. The main reason is that both these countries have had hostile relations in the past and their supporters simply not want to see them lose a game against their opponent. However cricket is much beyond all this and it is all about playing a good game on a given day to beat the opponent team. Teams plan out different strategies to beat their opponent on the field, but at the end it all depends on how a team actually performs on the field on a given day.
The Ashes is another keenly contested trophy and fans of both the England and the Australian cricket team love to see their team perform well and win the trophy. High quality cricket delivers by both the sides is one of the reasons why a huge number of fans look forward to this tournament. Currently Australia holds the title of winning the Ashes title. Last time it was the English team which won this after defeating the Australian team in a very well contested series played in England. The world cup is another tournament that all teams aim to win in their career. After all being the world champions is one of the most coveted trophies and being known as the world champions is really a wonderful feeling.
Of late some unwanted elements like match fixing has come to the fore and this has made the game unpopular in some corners. During the world cup which is currently being played in West Indies the murder of bob Woolmer, the Pakistan coach has damaged the reputation of the game. It is rumored that Woolmer was murdered because he had lots of information about match fixing in the cricket world as he was about to tell the world about this. Nonetheless the event is still being continued and the four semi finalists have bend decided. It is now going to be Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and Sri Lanka who will fight for the top honor in the world of cricket. It is not long when we will come to know which team is the champion in the field of cricket.
