Champions Trophy 2006 - Underrated
With the 2008 version going ahead, I think it's time to pay tribute to what was really a very good tournament that often gets lost in discussion between the dire WC, Twenty20s, IPL and so on.
For me, off the top of my head it had:
- Very low scoring games
- Dew factor and conditions that threw a spanner in the works, making many games unpredictable
- In fact many of the games were unpredictable and exciting
- WI doing well
- That ball from Bracken to Gayle
- Hilarious podium pushing controversy leading to animal painting
Enough rambling, very fun tournament for mine that doesn't get mentioned enough.
