During the Football/Soccer World Cup, Americans and non Americans cemented great friendships, just by sharing knowledge of a litte known Sport in America, namely that known as Football worldwide. It was a truelly wonderful friendly Thread and it is my hope that we can do it again with a World Cup that ranks 4th in popularity in the World. Although US is not represented, Canada certainly is, (Maybe from the Qualifiering Matches?) This year it is very open, although the Aussies have dominated it in the past three times, their Team is no where near it used to be and is back to the others.

Some History of it?

2011 Cricket World Cup

The ICC Cricket World Cup is the premier international championship of men's One Day International (ODI) cricket. The event is organised by the sport's governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC), with preliminary qualification rounds leading up to a finals tournament which is held every four years. The tournament is the world's fourth largest and most viewed sporting event.[1][2][2] According to the ICC, it is the most important tournament and the pinnacle of achievement in the sport.[3][4] The first Cricket World Cup contest was organised in England in 1975. A separate Women's Cricket World Cup has been held every four years since 1973.

The finals of the Cricket World Cup are contested by all ten Test-playing and ODI-playing nations, together with other nations that qualify through the World Cup Qualifier. Australia has been the most successful of the five teams to have won the tournament, taking four titles. The West Indies have won twice, while Pakistan, India, and Sri Lanka have each won once.

The 2007 Cricket World Cup matches were held between 13 March and 28 April 2007, in the West Indies. The 2007 tournament had sixteen teams competing in a pool stage (played in round-robin format), then a "super 8" stage, followed by semi-finals and a final. Australia defeated Sri Lanka in the final to retain the championship.

The 2011 Cricket World Cup will be held between 19 February and 2 April 2011. The tournament will be co-hosted by Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka. There are 14 countries that are participating in the tournament.

Surprising enough the Winners of the Football World Cup, Netherlands, are in it and are considered Dark Horses in it, same as Ireland.

Can we all try to give it a go and communicate like we did before?

Some Background from the Sport.

One Day International
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about the ruleset for men's cricket. For the similar ruleset for women's cricket, see Women's One-day International cricket.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground hosts an ODI match between Australia and India. The Australians, wearing yellow, are the batsmen, while India, wearing blue, are the fielding team.

One Day International (ODI) is a form of cricket, in which 50 overs are played per side between two national cricket teams. The Cricket World Cup is played in this format. One Day International matches are also called "Limited Overs Internationals (LOI)", because they are limited overs cricket matches between national sides, and if the weather interferes they are not always completed in one day. Important one-day matches, international and domestic, often have two days set aside, the second day being a "reserve" day to allow more chance of the game being completed if a result is not possible on the first day (for instance if play is prevented or interrupted by rain).

The international one-day game is a late twentieth-century development. The first ODI was played on 5 January 1971 between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. When the first three days of the third Test were washed out officials decided to abandon the match and, instead, play a one-off one day game consisting of 40 six-ball overs per side. Australia won the game by 5 wickets.

In the late 1970s, Kerry Packer established the rival World Series Cricket (WSC) competition, and it introduced many of the features of One Day International cricket that are now commonplace, including coloured uniforms, matches played at night under floodlights with a white ball and dark sight screens, and, for television broadcasts, multiple camera angles, effects microphones to capture sounds from the players on the pitch, and on-screen graphics. The first of the matches with coloured uniforms was the WSC Australians in wattle gold versus WSC West Indians in coral pink, played at VFL Park in Melbourne on 17 January 1979. It was credited with making cricket a more professional sport.
