    Australia won an exciting semi-final against Pakistan....

    Those folks who say sixes are rare at this tournament forgot to tell Hussey!

    Personally I'm on the cusp on this issue it could be a truly great World Cup, the best ever in all formats. Or it could just be another really ****ty one. 50/50 really.


    or in reality 5/95

    I reckon it's been great. The Barbados pitch especially.

    Best ever; it's official.

    Actually, without wishing to be too much of a cock, it was all too easy for England, really. Only the weather really tested us.

    Awful, certainly the worst as a team that should have gone out at the first stage ended up fluking the thing.

I love the stadium in Christchurch, not only is it small but the crowd is right over the ground which makes it all the more fun watching the ball sail into the crowd.
    Yeah this.

    The collapses on Barbados pitch were really shameful for T20 cricket. Yes it exposed the inabilities of some teams to play the shorter stuff, but I don't think it was anyway conducive to an enjoyable cricket match. Substitute the pitch with a rank turning dustbowl and you'd have exactly the same sour taste in the mouth.

    it turned out ok in the end but the last one england was better. i think the biggest problem was the lack of crowds at the stadiums.
