Excited Cricket Fans From Across The World Throng England

Excited fans are all geared up for the biggest cricket tournament in the world where England and India have been given the favorites tag by many pundits.

Fans are already rushing to watch the practice games with England fans looking forward to win their first world cup trophy.

From hosting the first three tournaments and reaching the final in 1979, 1987 and 1992, England slid downwards and reached its nadir four years ago when they unceremoniously exited at the group stage in Australia, the last straw being a humbling by an upstart Bangladesh.

Since then, the limited-overs caterpillars have transformed themselves into white-ball butterflies, acquiring an enviable assortment of big-hitters who routinely post 300-plus scores.

Heavyweights England begin their world cup campaign against South Africa on the opening day of the tournament.

The world cup is set to begin on may 30. Ten teams are participating in the tournament and each of them will play all the nine others to reach the semifinals.
