As I mentioned elsewhere - good stuff from Kev, nice short'n'sharp round-up, 1 or 2 things occurred to me reading those that hadn't while I was watching (which I haven't been able to do as much as I'd have liked due to several things).

To the point stuff there and that pretty much wraps up all the content about the Group stages of the WC.
The WC would have been so much better if both Pakistan and India could have qualified for the Super 8's (its an another thing that both these teams don't deserve to qualify for the Super 8's) and last but certainly not the least if Bob Woolmer won't have died in such tragic circumstances.
Nice articles, quite well written.

I wouldn't have minded reading a little bit more
Future Of Cricket
I think if India and Pakistan would have made it to the Super 8's the interest in the WC would have been a lot higher then its atm, since both Pakistan and India have a huge fan following.
yeah, thats still money talking though...because more interest=more money...so it doesn't effect the cricket...
Can you believe it - people're blaming the ICC format for India and Pak's exit! "OOh, they weren't given enough chances! OOoooh, they just lost twice! Ooooh....they needed time to get used to the conditions!" First people compain that the minnows may not be competitive enough...then they complain they're too competitive!
What a bunch of whiners. The ICC may be responsible for some ridiculous faux-pas, but this wasn't one: Ind and Pak were crap teams that did deserve to be kicked out. I do hope this puts into action some policy reforms in their respective local FC circuits and selection and management policies.
i agree....and i have been saying the same thing...you knew the format before you started playing....you had warm up matches to get to know the conditions of WI....stop whinging...
