    World Cup Winners: Australia
    "Big 8" side to perform most poorly: Pakistan
    Player with most runs: Kumar Sangakarra/Ricky Ponting
    Player with best strike-rate: Mahendra Singh Dhoni
    Player with biggest score of tournament: Ponting, 170+ in the semi's, or final.
    Bowler with most wickets: Shane Bond
    Bowler with best economy rate: Shaun Pollock
    Bowler with best performance of tournament: Shane Bond - taking an 8-fer when NZ are in a real need of it after making a <180 score
    Tournament's emerging player: Robin Uthappa, Ross Taylor, Liam Plunkett & Shane Watson (forgot to add bowles)
    Most disappointing player: Makhaya Ntini
    Surprise package (Team):England - They'll come a helluva lot closer to making the Semi's than many think IMO.
    Biggest disappointment: The bowlers are going to cop an absolute pasting in the majority of the games. Spin bowlers especially.

    Jayasuriya has an extra 'y'
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!
