- 2006/07 Champions Trophy
- 1999 World Cup (more than one thriller to go, particularly where Australia was involved)
- 2005/06 VB Series (was compelling during the early stages)
- 1987 World Cup (Australia winning, despite the apparent 20:1 odds)
- 1993/94 Benson and Hedges series (very tight, from what I heard, particularly during the round robin stages)
- 2007 World Cup (need I say more?)
- 2002/03 World Cup (for the tiresome issues of Zimbabwe, Kenya and ambush marketing)
- 2004 Champions Trophy
- 2005 Super Series (of all the adjectives I'd use to describe it, super would not be among them)
- 1991/92 World Cup (as much for Australia's dire performance as for the rain rules)
- 2000/01 CUB Series (utterly one-sided - and there were three teams!)
T20 tournaments (including the 2007 one, which was better than I expected) aren't considered, as I simply dislike that form of the game.
Has anyone got an opinion on those Asian test cricket tournaments that were played during the late 1990's?

When asked what the IPL means for seasoned pros like him, Dravid smiled and neatly deflected the question: it is a different world altogether, he said. "The other day I walked the ramp as part of a promotional event. When I started my career, I never imagined this would be part of a cricketer's life!"
Nonetheless, purely from the POV that the 2007 World Cup was played with ODIs and the Twenty20 thingy with Twenty20, 2007 WC >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 2007/08 T20 World thingy.

Twenty20 used to be boring.
But that Ireland victory over Pakistan was one piece in a massive jigsaw that ruined the tournament.
Ironically, you've removed the most interesting parts of the tournament there. I enjoyed one match in the T20 championship more than the entire World Cup.

One game a day, much as some decry it, is the only way to make a large profit. Having multiple games per day vastly decreases TV revenue.
Yeah but you don't dislike Twenty20 - therefore that's near-inevitable.Ironically, you've removed the most interesting parts of the tournament there. I enjoyed one match in the T20 championship more than the entire World Cup.
I happen to think that, few and far between though they may have been, there were a few highlights of that tournament, Pakistan-vs-Ireland not included. The incredible Sri Lanka-England match; the brief time when Smith and de Villiers were looking like reprising The Wanderers; the Sri Lanka-South Africa match where the easiest position ever to be thrown away almost happened before they got over the line. And probably 1 or 2 others that I've forgotten. Games which were anticipated and lived-up to the billing.
Have to agree on some of those highlights too though, also Malinga's 4 in 4 alluded to, the Ireland-Zimbabwe tie.
However, had I done so that would indeed probably have been a fair estimate at my feelings.
I never enjoy seeing supposedly top-class teams being ripped-up by part-timers - never. That just isn't the way I swing, and I make no apologies for the anti-romantic feelings. Romance can be dealt with elsewhere - I just don't enjoy it in cricket.
Was going to mention the tie TBH.Have to agree on some of those highlights too though, also Malinga's 4 in 4 alluded to, the Ireland-Zimbabwe tie.
