Guest bloggers for the World Cup
The World Cup kicked off yesterday, with West Indies becoming the first host team since England (1999) to win their opening game, against Pakistan
To provide a well rounded coverage of this tournament, Cricket 24x7 is very proud to present its list of guest bloggers for the World Cup.
Beginning today, we'll have Reenen Laurie, Stuart Helwig
, Zainub Razvi
and Sean providing us, and our readers, their takes on the tournament.
Reenen Laurie ("Reenen's thoughts on things"
) has commented on these pages quite often and will be providing a South African angle. Sean ("Rain, No Play"
) runs a very interesting blog on Caribbean cricket and he'll be giving us a West Indian perspective. Stuart ("STUmpCam"
) blogged here during the Ashes and comes in with Australia having a fairly mixed record - winning two consecutive World Cups and losing five one-day internationals in a row (two to England & three to New Zealand - the last two teams Aussies would prefer losing to, if there was anything such as an Aussie preferring to lose). Zainub ("Sundries"
), our first every guest blogger, will provide a Pakistani angle. We're also hoping she'll analyze hairdos and predict the way the tournament will pan out on that basis. Geoff will be providing us insights into the minnows (sic). I'll leave it to him to define that term :)
This doesn't mean our guest bloggers only provide narrow perspectives based on where they are from or the team they support. We'll obviously have posts and discussions which aren't necessarily team-centric. As for me and Ganesh, we will also be posting. Guest bloggers provide us the ability to offer different perspectives to readers and given the timezone difference, it'd be very tough for Ganesh and me to blog at night!
Over to you, folks.
