We are less 75 days away from the start of the biggest extravaganza in cricket (after, of course, the IPL). The Cricket World Cup 2015 will see Dhoni’s boys try to defend their title, South Africa try to reach the semi-finals before chocking and Sri Lanka try to get into the final which they will probably lose eventually.
Here are 7 things that can only happen once in four years, during the World Cup:
Accidents on Indian roads will increase by 50%, caused by drivers craning their necks backwards to check the score in that tiny roadside TV
Attendance in offices will drop by 50%, and bosses will start finding that the average health of their employees is alarmingly poor
Everyone above the age of 45 will talk only about how great Kapil’s Devils were in 1983. Everyone between the ages of 10 and 45 will say that Dhoni was better. Everyone below the age of 10 will wish that the others would shut up and let them watch.
We will see Pakistan lose to some unheard of minnow (this time, our money is on Scotland), thereby making us feel that Sreesanth’s friends might just be in touch with their players
South Africa will lose in the semi-finals, and everyone will call them the dreaded C-word
Children in schools across India will curse cruel Fate, which schedules their final exams and board exams just when the World Cup is getting interesting
Football fans will lose weight and become pale and depressed, as their TV access is limited
