This ICC T-20 Cricket World Cup is expected to break the record for number of people who watched a cricket tournament since the sport conducted multi-national events more than 45 years ago.

Whether Mark Wood clocking 154.7 kmph in Brisbane or Suryakumar Yadav showing his exploits of scooping the ball to areas that are unimaginable, the tournament has reached all corners of the globe thanks to the exploits of the super athletes who take part.

Something that is bound to happen in T-20 cricket are upsets and in this edition we saw two times champion West Indies bowing out without reaching the second round, England losing to Ireland, South  Africa going down to Netherlands and Pakistan suffering a shock defeats to Zimbabwe.

The tournament’s biggest game, India versus Pakistan was undecided until the last ball of the game and so were several other matches. The T-20 game has helped the sport to reach new audiences and more and more people are taking up cricket with the women’s participating in the game thriving like never before.

Cricket stalls that were put out at the grounds were thronged by fans to collect memorabilia of the event.

With the interest for the game soaring, cricket equipment becomes a good Christmas present to your friends and loved ones in the festive season.

Not just boys and girls, adults and seniors too play the game of cricket so make sure you provide them a memorable gift for this Christmas.
