As per the survey done by ESPNcricinfo, more than 34% of 6,000 office goers across the country said that they would fall ill tomorrow, while close to 2% are planning to say that their houses have been burgled to take a leave on Thursday.
Although, India played most of their matches during the weekends, the semi-final #IndvsAus is on Thursday, 26th March 2015. This leaves cricket fans anxious about how and where to watch it.
A Coca Cola spokesperson said, “Match days are usually relaxed in our office. We have granted leave to employees, but they’re free to gather in the cafeteria or in their bosses’ cabins to watch the match.”
Madhur Advani, Sales Manager at Avanta Business Centre said, “I have ensured that there are less calls, minimum meetings, and more excitement for my team tomorrow. We’re planning to watch semi-final together and cheer for India’s win.”
ESPNcricinfo, which interviewed 6,000 respondents, said, “Cricket fans will not let work get in the way of them enjoying the much-awaited World Cup tournament. Sixty two per cent said they will miss work at some point. When it comes to what excuses they would use to skip work, the time-tested method of calling in sick appeals more to the younger fans; 75% fans over 30 are open to skipping work to watch a match.”
