    Your World Cup Highlight.

    What is everyones personal best moment of this world cup?

    For me it was Ricky Pontings Innings yesterday I though it was simpily an outstanding innings by a Captain on the biggest stage in world cricket I personaly beleve he would have made 200 if he had another 6-7 overs.

    My other highlight was Davisons record 100 I just loved the look on the faces of the WI player who could not beleve Canada were 150/2 of 20 somthing overs.

    My low point of the world cup was also a high point that being the bravery and courage shown by A.Flower and H.Olonga it was a high point in that it inspired me and many others to beleve in the power of inderviduals and no innings or wicket hall can compair to the courage they showed. However I am very sad about the situation it has put Olonga and Flower in both personaly and proffesionaly as cricketers and people and I just pray for there safety.

    For me, I guess being bias to my country Stephen Fleming's century against South Africa was awesome to watch.

    A low point was the fact that NZ failed to turn up against Australia & India with the bat.

    And John Davison's 75 against NZ kicked ass, man that charging hook is the meanest shot!

    Yeah that charging hook shot was just one of those ones you could hardly beleve could be played not to mention it hiting right dead center of the bat.

    High point: Lara's hundred, Sarwan's returning from hospital, Pakistan/India (Anwar and Sachin ), Ponting's six feast, Lara's Canadian feast and KENYA!!! .

    Low point: Rain, Rain, Jonty's hard luck, Donald's struggles, NZ and SL Super 6 struggles....and Rain!!!

    Most inspiring moment: Sarwan returning from injury to hit 2 fours and 2 sixes in 47*!

    I guess anyone who does anything against England is rued.:rolleyes:

    Also, how can players themselves be low points? Wouldn't it be accomplishments or lack thereof?

    For me, the high point was Martin Suji bagging Sachin for 5 in the Super Sixes.

    <quack> Anything by Gerrie Snyman or Vasbert - and Churchy getting run out on 99

    My low points were the boycotts and the rain - especially during the South Africa v Sri Lanka game which ended in the D/L tie

    <quack> West Indies failing to make the Super Sixes
    Nigel Clough's Black and White Army, beating Forest away with 10 men

    My high points - Sachin smacking Shoaib over point for six and the subsequent Indian win over Pak, Nehra's dream spell against England, Davison's electrifying strokeplay against WI and NZ, and Vasbert Drakes' amazing catch to dismiss Davison.

    My Low points - SA and WI not making it to the super-six and England and NZ's unnecessary boycott of matches.

    My highlights were:

    1 Ponting's century in the final.
    2 Davison's performance.
    3 Bichel and Symonds doing well.
    4 Shane Bond's spell against Australia.
    5 England shooting themselves in the foot against Australia. They should have won that one.

    The lowlights:

    1 The performance of Bangladesh - a test nation that played worse than the non-test sides.
    2 Ganguly appealing for the catch against Gilchrist that missed the bat and bounced.
    3 The boycotts.
    4 South African mathemetics.
    5 The Indian bowling performance in the final (except for Nehra). I was hoping for a closer game between the 2 best sides in the comp.

    Of course you'd play somewhere if you recieved death threats wouldn't you?
