48 Matches, in total, May 30 to July 14 (Final).

Essentially a match day.

GOOD TV (Roku) coverage in the U.S. with Willow TV.

[Do NOT bother with Hotstar unless you are Indian or have a low IQ.]

I plan to watch the highlights of all 48-matches on Willow TV.

I was there at the 1979 & 1983 FINALS at Lord’s.

Watched 2015, 2011 & 2007 on TV.

So let’s get ready.

Today is the DAY.

Enjoy.

Cheers.

Cricket World Cup 2019: Who Do I Think/Hope Will Win It.

As with so many decisions in my life, I have two choices — one based on what I think (i.e., what my heads says) and the other being what I want (i.e., going with the heart).

Despite their poor performance in the warm-up game against Australia (on Saturday), I, like most of the professional pundits, think that England can pull this off. Nothing wrong with that. As a proud Brit I will, of course, rejoice. But, I don’t have an empathy with any of the current English players. They just seems so robotic.

On the other hand, I genuinely like quite a few of the South Africans. I have really got to admire and enjoy the South Africans over the last few years. They have usurped the West Indies, a team I ardently supported for over 40-years, as the team I look forward to watching and rooting for.

What I like most is their genuine, fondness for each other — irrespective of color or religion (given that they have white & black, Christians and Muslims). That team exemplifies what Nelson Mandela wanted for all of South Africa. I think part of my fondness for them is my devotion to Nelson Mandela. Supporting this South African team is like paying homage to Nelson. That appeals to me. Plus, some really exciting cricketers: Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Lungi Ngidi, Kagiso Rabada … They all remind me of the West Indians that I should to adore.

Well, the 2019 World Cup hasn’t even started yet. So, a long way to go. But, it should be fun — especially with U.S. coverage available with Willow TV.
