    It is delightful to see new names in Bermuda, Cyprus, Indonesia being interested to Cricket. I can visualize that the day is not far ahead when cricket will be played in more than 50 countries and will be even more popular than the soccer world cup and will be a prime sports in the Olympics and Asiads. Kudos to ICC to promoting it rightly.
