    I don't consider doing very well in one half of the game as "a mauling" to the opposition...

They obviously seized that opportunity with both hands, but they were hardly perfect throughout the whole tournament; no team was, clearly. Just accept it and move on, IMO.

    Who do you think was overwhelming favourite before the rain came for West Indies?

    Who do you think was the favourite before the rain came against Ireland?


    England on both counts. Who holds the Ashes? Who holds the T20 World Cup? England on both counts. Better luck next time.

    Haha geez, sorry guys, wasn't aware that my post was an all-out criticism of the English team during this tournament. They played great cricket, romped home their semi-final and were clearly the best team on display in the final; please tell me in my post where I said that this wasn't the case. Given their performance once they got past the group stage, they clearly deserved to win the tournament.

    All I was pointing out was that it had seemed that a few Aussie posters had made the (illogical) claim that the England team unfairly had a number of foreign-born players, and it was promptly pointed out that at the end of the day, England still won, 'better luck next time,' etc. Yet there were - and still are - people saying that England 'absolutely steamrolled' the West Indies, when at the end of the day, the West Indies still won. It clearly wasn't the best post, and was written at 3AM, but FMD, I was hardly saying that another team should've won the tournament.

    No one pointed out that England steamrolled WI. Perhaps, this wasnt pointed out to people but games that are generally rained out dont count but of course because WI won by duckworth lewis people are likely to think otherwise. When I mentioned that England steamrolled all opposition, I though that it was implicitly obvious that England steamrolled all opposition in all completed international games but apparently WI dominating 2 over games counts as an international game. Yes my apologies. WI dominated England for 2 overs. My post defies all logic.

    Might as well keep it open considering the next ****ing Twenty20 World Cup is probably only two or three months away.
