    My Top 5 Magical World Cup Moments

    Malinga’s hat-trick

    Sri Lanka’s king of sling claimed a second World Cup hat-trick in a six-wicket haul against hapless Kenya in Colombo. Malinga sent back Tanmay Mishra, Peter Ongondo and Shem Ngoche in successive balls. In 2007, he had taken four wickets in four balls against South Africa... Read More Click Here

    The Tied Game - that's where the WC came alive for me

    KOB and Ireland vs. England

    NZ's 100 runs in the final 5 vs. Pak

    South Africa's quarter final choke, failing to win a KO game in a WC yet again. Moment in question should be Oram's catch off Kallis, that started the slide.

    MSD's 6.

    In order of occurance.

    Plenty of other awesome moments tho, such as England in general until the KO (losing to BD, beating RSA, above mentioned moments), Robin Peterson coming off with the new ball, Malinga's six yorkers, Wahab Riaz's ball to Yuvi, Steyn's five-fer, Malinga dismissing Sachin in the final, Jayawaradene's shot to bring up his 100, which kinda launced the final surge for SL to get to what seemed at the time an imposing total. Dilshan being a revelation with the ball, UV's rebirth and general awesomness, Munaf's caught and bowled, plenty of other fine catches and fielding efforts. Zak's second/third spells. Ajmal vs. Tendulkar. Afridi's celebration pose. Balaji Rao. RTD's 100 vs. England. Harbhajan dismissing Umar Akmal, the moment that you felt India had this game won. MSD's Six over backwards point which brought the equation down to 37 off 41.

    Zaheer's slower "knuckle balls" to dismiss Dwayne Smith at a crucial moment and Hussey in the QFs worth a mention, IMO. Brilliant pieces of skill.

    That Wahab Riaz in-swinging full toss to Yuvraj has to be the ball of the tournament. Very full, very fast, and superb late in-swing..........reminded you of Wasim and Waqar at their best

    lol@ the reaction of the guy in the crowd......he says "what the hell is going on"..........

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Hard to narrow it down to 5, all of these were great moments. A couple that haven't been mentioned would be England's turnaround against South Africa and Hiral Patel's six off Tait.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.
