World Cup '99

The Carnival of Cricket ! The true quest for a champion ! The World Cup has moved back to England for what seams to be the biggest World Cup yet. This world cup is slated to bring in 50 million pounds ! That's roughly Rs. 350 Crore ! Wait that's not where it stops , the winning team would get $300,000 runners-up $150,000 and semifinalists $1000,000 . Well other than the money aspect the World Cup this year is going to be a hell of a contest. The South Africans have entered as favorites with the Pakistanis and Aussies close on their heels . But can the defending champions pull off another victory ? Can India cast another magic spell ?Who knows? We'll have to wait and see ... for now all we can say is
