By the way, 14 teams that are playing in the World Cup have been divided in to two teams namely Group A and Group B. The Group A consists of Australia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Canada and Kenya while the Group B consists of India, South Africa, England, West Indies, Bangladesh, Netherlands and Ireland. Remember that teams in the Group A will only play against each other and the same goes true with Group B as well. So, a team in Group A will not play against a team in the Group B unless and until teams from each of the group play each other in the Quarter Finals / Semi Finals / Finals.

It is however sad that the Bengal Tiger Sourav Ganguly, my favourite cricketer, has retired from ODI and has not been playing since the last World Cup. Though I am deeply disappointed with this, cricket is still a game fancied by millions worldwide and there is little or no respect for the senior players. Anyway, I hope that Team India wins the World Cup this year as they have the advantage of playing in their home side. Cheers and Good luck to India !!
