Cricket passion

With all due respect to Bangladesh, the most singularly passionate cricket nations have to be India, Pakistan and the West Indies in no particular order. This is because unlike Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and England who have other sporting areas of historic excellence, thes countries' only mark on the international sporting stage is in cricket. So it is a bit sad that each of these three countries (in the Windies' case, collection of countries) have struggled mightily in the World Cup.

However, we're poised for some thrilling semifinal encounters and it's hard to argue that the best four countries in this tournament aren't represented.
