If English and Australian cricket fans are still liable to dream of hushed crowds and men in whites, for the average Indian fan, cricket is about monster hitting, Hindi beats and cheerleaders wearing little behind their pompoms

2016 brings the World Cup to India

As soon as the game began, so did the coordinated cheering. Led by cheer captains in the outfield bleachers, the batting team’s fans chanted, sang and rhythmically banged plastic bats for every pitch to every batter. Their deafening, synchronized roar dominated the dome. Each hit ignited a burst of still louder cheers and frantic towel waving.

*2008/8/18 張華先生賜知

經查蘇先生的原文,『「啦啦隊長」可稱為 captain』:
幾年前李銘珠女士跟筆者聊天時指出這個常見錯誤,但她沒把它形諸文字,所以很少有人注意到這個問題。最近筆者參考了一些文獻,並與美國朋友仔細討論,發現中文裡「啦 啦隊」英文的說法,除了上面提到的 cheerleading squad 或 cheerleaders,也可以指拿著有羽毛或花邊裝飾圓圈 (pompom) 表演助陣的 pompom squad,甚至包括敲鑼打鼓遊行的marching band。「啦啦隊長」可稱為 captain,如果隊長是 marching band 的指揮,男性稱為 drum major,女性稱為 drum majorette。
