    page threeisation

    As a result, watching cricket is now a bit like creating the ultimate escapist adventure, where the players are expected to be superheroes who must either perform or perish on a daily basis. The so-called cricket "enthusiasm" is really little more than voyeurism in disguise, the affection is not for the traditions of the game, but for a certain mindless clamour for glamour and titillation. In this "page threeisation" of cricket, you can be a "star" one day, a "mujrim" the very next, the transition from hero to villain is immediate. In this crazy topsy-turvy world, is it any surprise that there are those who will kill in the name of the game?

    Please explain the highlighted group of words.
