World Cup fever

It’s hard to believe that it’s Cricket World Cup time again! In fact, seems not so long ago that Australia successfully defended their World Cup title and here we are, back for another edition of the premiere tournament for one-day cricket, pitting the best national teams against each other. For this year, the World Cup is being held at the West Indies.

Well, tonight is the second of the semi-finals. Sri Lanka had already convincingly thrashed New Zealand during last night’s first semi-final, ending their hopes of reaching their first ever finals yet again. However, the key game will be tonight’s showdown between the two titans of the one-day game: Australia vs South Africa. Given their past encounters, this promises to be an exciting nail-biter. No secret where my loyaly lies, even if it means dark eyes tomorrow – the games will start at 9.30pm local time and finishes somewhere around 5am, I suppose?

The final is this Saturday and I do hope that Australia will be able to move past South Africa and get a crack of making it three successive titles! It’s too bad that I will miss most of the first half of the final game because of the milonga I will be DJ’ing… 🙁

Go, go Aussies!
