    yeah. but this world cup will hurt that somewhat. Although the next one should bring it right back up, and may be even more.

    Yup, we all know cricket is one of the most watched sports in world atm and WC is one tournament that always generates huge viewership, so nothing suprising in that.

    A pretty disappointing world cup and not really worth viewing tbh. Lets hope for closer last two matches. It will be interesting to see how the Twenty20 world cup will go later on this year. It should provide closer contests but probably lesser showing of true cricket skills.
