    Winner: South Africa (this time its no fluking !)

    Final: South Africa vs Australia

    Leading Run Scorer: Rickey Ponting/Yousaf Youhana/Gibbs

    Leading Wicket Taker: Shoaib Akhtar or Bond

    Highest individual Score: Hayden

    Player of the Tournament: It will be a bowler no doubt...Muttiah Muralitharan?

    Biggest Surprise(Player): hmmm.....lets say Zaheer Khan.

    Biggest Flop(Player): Shaun Pollock (I just have this feeling he's going to be pasted ??)

    Biggest Surprise(Team): England (They haven't been bad at ODI's at all !)

    Biggest Flop(Team): India (I say this because of the air that the Indian batting order has created yet miserable against better bowling attacks) for a flop you have to be previously flying high....
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box

    I don't think you can call Sehwag a surprise anymore cause he's played 50+ ODI's & is well known to score big.

    Its got to be more of a new player or someone who you wouldn't be expecting to make an impact.

    But anyway, Sehwag it is.

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."
