Students Should not become too much Engrossed with Twenty20 World Cup 2009

The practice matches will start from tomorrow and thus for the next 22 days, millions of people in South Asia will be totally glued to their TV sets about cricket. Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are playing from South Asia and all of them have good teams. In fact, in 2007, India and Pakistan played in the final.

So, for the next 3 weeks, many people will have nothing to do but discuss about cricket and watch matches. There is nothing wrong in it. However, I am concerned about the negative impact it may have on students. It will have bad effect on their studies.

I sometimes wish that the people of South Asian countries were less passionate about sports. This can help the students to study better. Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India have won the title of World Cup Cricket once. So, their people are crazy for it. Bangladesh could not win any major trophy in this sports until now but that did not have any problem to make it as the most popular sports.
