2015 Cricket World Cup in New Zealand and Australia
Cricket is not a sport I usually watch and I have only a limited understanding of the rules. However, as the Cricket World Cup 2015 starts here in New Zealand and Australia at the end of this week, I imagine I'll be seeing a lot of it on our TV screen for a while. The World Cup starts on 14 February and continues until 29 March.
The event is being jointly hosted by New Zealand and Australia, with 23 games being held here and 26 games in Australia. The final will be held in Melbourne, Australia. The first game, on Saturday, will be between Sri Lanka and New Zealand and takes place at Hagley Park in Christchurch, New Zealand.
I've decided to take the opportunity of the next few weeks to learn a little more about the game of cricket and, in particular, become more familiar with our New Zealand team. Is your country on of the fourteen with teams playing in this years Cricket World Cup?
