    Before tournament
    Person x says "Ah England have a good bunch of players our record has been great because we won x series in a row - we will have a great tournament.

    After England gets knockout of tournament
    Person x says "Nah England are **** they never had a chance so its not a chance.
    Can you do a similar before and after tournament for South Africa too, please?

    Look, I like and support South Africa (lest you misunderstand), but to not acknowledge the choke problem is denial, as Gary Kirsten would tell you.

    I'd love you to provide evidence of this happening because I can't remember any ICC tournament in my cricket watching time when England have gone in being talked up.

    Sri Lankans are the best fielding unit in South Asian teams.They have got the best players with unique capabilities like Malinga,Mendis etc.Winning and losing is part of game,they played extra ordinary through out the tournament but in the Final W.Indians were just too good for them.They got the 2nd position which is never bad but home crowd was little disappointed in the end.i don't think Sri Lankans can be called "chokers".
