    Best of the tournament

    For discussion and arguments over best innings, bowling performance etc. I'd include best match as a category, but after yesterday there may not be much contention over this, though Eng vs SL and NZ vs India were also crackers
    Follow me @cricket_gc, should you want to learn more of my cricketing thoughts and opinions, or read them in more detail on my blog: https://gccricket.wordpress.com

    Best innings : Carlos Braithwaite vs NZ
    Best bowling spell : Malinga vs England for saving the group stage from boredom
    Best single game performance : Jadeja 1-34 in 10 overs, 77(59), 2 catches, 1 direct hit runout
    Worst innings: Dhoni vs England
    Worst spell (or rather worst over) : Gulbadin vs Pakistan
    Best catch: Stokes vs sa
    2nd best match of the tournament : Ind vs NZ semifinal

    I've excluded everything that happened in the final on principle. It belongs in a different plane altogether.

    Worst Innings has to be Colin de Grandhomme vs. England in the final. It was hilariously poor. It wasn't 16 (28) of a building innings, after the first 6 or so balls he was trying to smash boundaries, he just couldn't find any semblance of timing. Every single run was off of a new and interesting edge of the bat. We'd probably give it more grief if he didn't bowl his absolute socks off in the second innings to make up for it.

    Neesham's catch in the sf was the best. Starc's last spell Vs WI was magic.

    Cottrell's(?) catch of Smith trumps Stokes' catch pretty easily for mine. Crazy stuff.

    Guptill's was the best, I thought.

    Given the moment Stokes slog sweeping Boult for six is absolutely shot of the tournament.

    As a spectacle, some of Morgan's shots against Rashid Khan were epic

    Best fielding: Roy's throw to Buttler for the World Cup winning wicket. Especially considering the pressure he was under and he'd fumbled one just minutes earlier.

    Best shot: Roy's massive straight drive for SIX v Crimbaby Smith in the semi-final. Epic and hilarious!!

    Best fielding was Guptill nailing the direct hit to run out Dhoni in the semi IMO. Skillful and important.
