Economics of Cricket All Stars 2015 Event
As you all know “Cricket All Stars 2015” hosts first of its kind cricket series featuring 26 global cricket icons led by Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne. If you haven’t heard about it, check out cricketallstars2015.com.
To answer questions I get about the event and why I support this so much, let me do a simple cost benefit analysis.
Price: The best tickets are $175 ($216 with taxes)
If I do the math, I see that I am paying $8.30 / legend to watch them play in these matches sitting in one city. If I imagine a hypothetical situation where they are all STILL playing in ONE world cup with ALL matches happening in ONE city, even then I will be paying a lot more than one ticket to this event. You can imagine the prohibitive cost to see them play even if one of the above restrictions are taken out. The way I see it, it’s a steal.
It gives goosebumps to realize that I will hear, “Sachiiiinnnn.. Sachiiiinnnn..” as the GOD paints the field with his shots, see Shane Warne and Muralitharan do their magic with the ball, Wasim Swing and Rawalpindi Express run, Lara and Ponting take stand, Jonty’s catches – all this again on field before my eyes and not feel like it’s a dream. It would be a thrill to see that awe in my son’s eyes when he sees those titans that made me choose cricket for a living. He will remember this as a memory to cherish for life.
Why I support and request all to support this initiative?
This is a great opportunity to put the America and specifically Houston, New York and Los Angeles on cricket map. A grand success of this event will bring more investment in all forms of cricket development. More professional matches will happen in the US for us to enjoy and our kids will have a good solid foundation for this game we are so passionate about.
These legends are our heroes. They have given us great memories and entertained us for decades with their skills. That is why this is our event. It is an event that will pave the way to the future of cricket in this country. The success of this event is not the benefit of anyone but us. I will do my best to promote it because it is us who have a lot to gain or lose.
