Next, I created a map of all the countries that have ever participated in the World Cup. Here is what the map looks like:
The size of the flag indicates the number of times that a country has been the world champion (min value = 0; max value = 5).
Then I focused on the two World Cups (held in 1987 and 2011) that were hosted by Asian countries. For each of these editions, I created a map that marked the various venues where the cricket matches were played. Here is what the map looks like:
The size of the bubbles represents the number of matches played at the venue. To easily identify the venues that were added / dropped in 2011 and the difference in the number of matches played at each venue, I created a Story Map Swipe web app where if you scroll right, you can only see the 1987 venues where as if you scroll left, you can see the 2011 venues appear. I think this is a really cool web app (even if I say so myself!).

Finally, to put all this together in a story that (hopefully!) flows nicely, I created the following Story Map Journal app:
