We all know what a good cricket match means. Other than a good innings, it means a lot of friends, cheering and booze.
We all know what a good cricket match means. Other than a good innings, it means a lot of friends, cheering and booze. It means sly glances at the cricket updates on your phone, while you are in a meeting. It means fighting over the television remote, and when you aren’t doing that, staring at the television screen wide eyed and open mouthed.
The 2012 ICC World Twenty20 will be the fourth ICC World Twenty20 Competition, an international Twenty20 cricket tournament that will be held in Sri Lanka between September 18 and October 7, 2012. This will be the first World Twenty20 tournament held in an Asian Country, the last three being held in South Africa, England and the West Indies respectively.
Here’s another year and another T20 World Cup on the way. So what if it isn’t being held in Ludhiana. Restaurants and bars all over the city are all out to give you the cricket experience of your life! Stores and restaurants take it upon themselves to make sure that isn’t anything that will come in the way of a good cricket tournament.
No one seems to be untouched by the cricket fever which will rise gradually as the tournament progresses. Quite a few places have already set up projection screams where people in the city will be able to enjoy the cricket matches and experience being a part of a global audience. Dilmohan Singh, Manager, A Hotel said, “We have set up a projection screen and are looking forward to see a lot of cricket enthusiasts come and enjoy the game.”
To get the people really involved with the feeling of cricket is jerseys and other cricket paraphernalia, which will be hitting stores shortly, if they haven’t already.
Some places have tailored menus and offers for the cricket season. Rakesh Rawat, GM, Gigabite, said, “We have special drink combos with cricket names for them.”
