Cricket is one of the most popular sports in the Indian peninsula, Australia, England and many other countries. The game has an innumerable number of fans and a lot of emotion attached to it, think of India-Pakistan matches or the Ashes series. Cricket goes on throughout the year as cricket fans keep refreshing the ESPN Cricinfo page, especially when they are in the office and can’t watch it live on TV.
