    So have you enjoyed the WC?

    So how has it been for you?

    For me, its been a good event, and some brilliant cricket has been played, from the underdogs especially...But for nightmarish cricket from SA, and neither SA nor England qualifying I have to say it has been a bad World cup...I cant really wait for Australia to collect their winners medals and the new season to kick off in England!

    Roll on 2007, because this one has been awful

    I haven't had this much pleasure watching or even reading about India play since our win over Aus in India. That makes me happy

    And so, yes, I have absolutely loved this world cup

    A side of me is angry cuz Nehra proved my initial thoughts about him wrong, but then a larger side of me is happy for him and India

    What were your initial thoughts? He's rubbish? You never know...he might end up proving you and me right in the final where he gets tonked for a record 101-1 off his 10 overs and India loose

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    A bad performance now still won't falsify the fact that he sliced through the English :P And pretty decisively at that :P

    I was wanting Prasad to play...I have the strange feeling that whenever he plays, India wins...and whenever he bowls, a wicket's gonna fall :P

    Yes but he got tonked for 74 off 10 overs in the next game...that's a hell of a lot of runs...and he was bowling under lights against England...and when he was hit for 74, guess what? No lights in sight

    Well doesn't it say good things of a bowler to exploit the conditions to the fullest? I think it does :P

    There's a few good bowlers who have gone for plenty on the odd occasion - Shoaib, Brett, Nehra, Jug-ears (sorry, I just negated my argument with the last one:P )

    Well for me, the World Cup has been far too drawn out like the ICC Trophy. It feels like a year ago that the West Indies played South Africa.

    I think this is all due to the fact that there are either too many teams participating or that they are only playing up to 2 matches per day.

    i think it has been a great world cup and i think the semis and final will be great too. it is good to see kenya winning some matches without the help of rain.and it is good to see some of the better teams losing(especially south africa). its been great and i hope cricket in the next few years will be as good as this!!!!

    its been ok, but not as good as i was hoping for.
    Australian unbeaten and too many teams havent been competitive enough, bangladesh were a disapointment. fair enough they are crap, but they were trounced by every team.
    it would have been better if South africa and pakistan got through the group stage.

    Well, not exactly. Pakistan are out and for me its difficult to enjoy the World cup, It has been a bit too predictable when it comes to Australian cricket, unbeatable and yeah right favorites to lift the cup again.

    India on the other hand have been refreshing with their approach, for the first time I see them playing like a team, and coming from a 4-1 drubbing thats no mean thing.

    South Africa have been a dissapointment again, I was going through a cricket magazine reviewing the 99 World cup, and Against the Proteas the same question was put up : WIll they able to break the jinx in their own backyard ? pitifully the answer is a stark no.

    Without Pakistan and South Africa in the super six it was never going to be the same, but again with the type of cricket both of them were playing, perhaps it was befitting that minnows took their place in the Super six.

    One of the Semi-finals may turn out to be very one-sided. It was okayish for me.....

    As an England fan, no (but we have performed well in places)

    As a cricket fan, yes, as it's cricket, and lots of it

    I've been at home for the last few weeks - and haven't missed any of the live games (except the odd half an hour here and there).

    Now, as the tournament reaches its business end, I can't help but wish that there was another month or two of it to go.

    Ah, blessed operation.

    Ah, blessed unemployment.
