    This tourney's been cool because the bowlers have done well. People watch these games because they're close, not only because they rain sixes. Make the format more bowler-friendly, ensure that scores rarely go above 180, and I'll be a convert.

    Been a great tournament, comfortably better than any of the previous editions IMO.

    Good to see the nice balance between bat and ball continuing till the end. I have always felt that the ideal TT game has a target in the 150-160 range, a serious chance of the batting team getting bowled out and a close finish and that's exactly what we got.

    best T20 wc yet imo

    really enjoyed a lot of the matches. The pitches were sporting and the games competitive.

    Well done Indiar

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Memorable for sure. Watched four matches in the stadium, watched a lot on tv, got 25 or so autographs including Ambrose on a red ball. Almost every one enjoyed the tournament looking from the thread. However, what I liked was that it brought forward some of the ugly points in world cricket to the fore. The associates with the Scotland captain speaking out. The Windies. There were so many terrific matches as well. The India-New Zealand match really sticks out. India just didn't lose that one, they lost at really badly and no one expected that to happen. Every one took notice after that. Even all the associate matches were interesting to watch. Fuller mentioned how it helped see some new talent he wasn't exposed to. Afghanistan was so good to see. They have often been talked about as cricket's most remarkably improving side from their journey from when they weren't good at all. They are vastly improved in 2016 compared to 2015 and that's quite some thing given they don't have a lot of exposure. Bangladesh was asked some tough questions in the tournament and got a fine reality check. As did Pakistan. These were two sides which were progressing well over the last two years. However, now they have to take stock and see how to improve further. You could add some thing about Australia and SA and their incompetencies of different kinds as well. The tournament asked so many questions about various sides, various topics that are relevant to world cricket, that it was just smashing. And yes, the cricket rocked. T20 finally came off age with this tournament.

    Posted in other thread but that seems to be going inactive

    New to cricket in that I don't really follow it much but that final was very interesting. Can see myself getting into it although I don't mind playing it tbf.

    I wanted to ask who you guys think would have won if it were New Zealand in place of England? Seeing as I'm told NZ play a new type of fearless cricket.

    Only watched 5 games in full but it was good fun. Made me look forward to some proper stuff coming soon.

    Well done WI on 2 great wins in the finals. Much deserved, shame the song and dance are so crap.

    Why can't they use this format in the ODI WCs? Very few meaningless matches.

    The 'pre-qualifying' was a bit of a kick in the teeth.

    I like it just as much as an ODI, possibly more actually.
