Can't wait

So Asia gets the 2011 World Cup. Given that the BCCI will be the key player in this deal (with all due apologies to the PCB and the Sri Lankan board), this promises to be to World Cup cricket what the 1996 Atlanta Olympics were to the Olympics: the most crassly commercialized of them all. Looking forward to how ridiculous things can get in five years; expect sponsorship disputes, court battles between the BCCI and supposed trademark-violators, player-board fights, television rights disasters, and last, but not the least, the most over-the-top opening, award and closing ceremonies of all time. Yee-haw!
