With the ICC World Cup under way and cricket fans glued to their tele to catch their favorite team in action. A iphone or android app is a must have just in case you cant watch the matches for some reason or rather. My good friend who is a cricket fan keeps telling me about the ESPN CricInfo being the site he opens up before anything else, the app ought to be as good i reckon.
Download it for your iPhone or search ESPNcricinfo on the Android Market

Spain were crowned the Fifa World Cup 2010 champions after they defeated the Dutch team 1-0 in extra time. The ill tempered game saw 14 yellow cards, 1 red car, 1 karate kick and only one Andres INIESTA goal to seal the latest winners. This is the first time the Spaniards have won the world cup while also being the current European Champions.
Spain is also the first team to lose the opening World Cup game and to go on and win the top prize. For me this World Cup has been poor. Poor with the standard of football, its been a tactical World Cup. Teams came out looking to tactically neutralize their opponents and to snatch to one or two goals to take them through.
With the exception of the South American and Germany, others we poor. There were not many moments of brilliance, top players failed to shine and the lesser known came out tops. Have a look at the top goal scorers, Diego Forlan,Mueller,Sneidjer,Villa and Higuain.
Jambulani made lots of headlines because the ball was very different , call it high tech but some players who were not hitting the high notes HATED it! The top goal scorers…No Complains.
It was a decent final, not the best but South Africa did a brilliant job in hosting the games and till Brazil 2014, Adios!
After England’s tragic crash out of the World Cup 2010, the excuse that is flying around is that if there was video technology the outcome of the game would have been very different.
Yes! say what you want but if you asked me, i say there should NOT be video technology in football. Why? Incidents like this is why the beautiful game is the beautiful game. It can happen to absolutely anyone. The best referee’s make mistakes! If players who are paid millions can win tournaments and pay perfect games, what are you expecting off referee’s who mostly have full time jobs.
Remember this one? Continue reading »
