A while ago Amitha Amarasinghe published a post called “Cricket World Cup 2011 Will Become the First Ever ‘Social World Cup’” in his blog “Ami’s Space“. There he discussed what are potentials of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 to become the first ever “Social World Cup”, that past world cups hadn’t comparing this year with the past.
Specially, “Social World Cup” here means bringing the influence of cricket fever to the cyber world, as cricket world cup fever is socially spreaded enough already in Indian sub-continent, I guess other major cricketing nations are the same. So, according to Amitha – and your common sense – Internet and it’s media have spreaded all over the world now than ever, even in this Indian sub-continent where cricket is almost a religion. So, when we take these facts together, we see the best opportunity for ICC CWC2011 to be the first ever “Social World Cup”.
