    Yeah, I too loved the World Cup. And the current India-Australia series.

    Speaking of world cup - Tendulkar's 98 vs Pakistan especially. I hadn't seen a cricket match for 2 years until then, and boy what a good match to restart seeing matches!! :P

    As for 04, I agree with age_master, Australia in India should be good. Especially after what happened in 2001 and what is happen now...

    Tough call....

    Australia vs India in India will always be intresting, but I also feel the England in the West Indies will be a great series also if both teams play to their potential, England will certianly much pefere to be back on the pace tracks after the pain of WI.

    Also may not be exciting in the runs and wickets sense but I feel the England v NZ mini series will be a really good battle.

    And of course the mini World Cup with the ICC Trophy will be good to watch, even if all the groups are a formality, the knockout stages will be good.

    Should be a good year all round

    The World Cup was a farce best forgotten as soon as possible. So much wrong with it it was untrue. Taken after the brilliance of 1999 it was especially disappointing.
    It's never possible to say with any certainty what will be the best in the future, as for me the best cricket usually comes with evenly-matched sides, but not always. Hence India-Australia shouldn't be too good as India are overwhelmingly superior if we get proper Indian conditions. However, the England-West Indies Test-series' could be contests of mediocrity, or runfests (lots of good batsmen, no good bowlers, pitches unlikely to offer much to any bowlers).
    One thing for certain, there will be too much cricket played just as there has been for the last 6 or 7 years.

    I think the WC was the highlight. It was the most entertaining WC i had ever seen ( maybe b'coz India did well ) . Canada beating Ban , Kenya semifinalist, Eng - Aus match, India-Pak match , WI-Saf match,etc,. were all superb. I thought WI beating Aus 3 times in a row was superb too. In 2004, i expect Aus-Srl series to be a good one , Ind-Pak too but i think Pak hold the edge with Shoiab and Sami and playing in home conditions .

    Best Match:

    WI v Aus 4th Test
    NZ v SA in WC.
    WI v SA in WC.
    Kenya v SL in WC.
    WI v Zim 4th ODI.
    WI v Zim 2nd Test.

    I can't comment on games I haven't seen and I've seen West Indies play far more than any other team.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    It may well have been a farce for many teams, but for India and Australia that is an unfair adjective. Especially, for India. I doubt many teams would have come in India's way irrespective of the forfeited matches, etc. And surely no team would've come in Australia's way. :P

    Yet again nothing to back this sweeping statement up.

    How was it a farce? What was wrong with it?

    I felt it was pretty entertaining.

    Seeing John Davison tee off was something special.
