Cricket World Cup: Sneak Peek

Kshitij Regmi

 Cricket is on and people are already making assumptions of the performance of teams and players, thats where half the fun is at! I couldn't stay apart from making my own judgments and a few weeks earlier had come up with an article on the World Cup Cricket: Winners Predicted. To be honest after watching the warm up matches, I am not sure weather Australia will stand out the Caribbean pressure as I had predicted. There is only one way to find the answers and that is to wait and watch. By the time you read this article you will know who had the toned their muscles well.
