In 2011 Cricket World Cup action India defeated Pakistan in what may have been infront of the largest viewing audience of any sporting event ever. The game was expected to attract 7x the viewership that the Super Bowl does. India alone was expecting over 800 million viewers from their country.
India’s win today makes them now a perfect 5-0 against Pakistan in World Cup matches. However Pakistan does lead India in Tests and One Day Internationals which just seems to fuel this firy rivalry.
With the semi-final match becoming a global event, does it detract some of the luster or sex appeal of Saturday’s final between India and Sri Lanka?
