    Highest individual innings scorer: Chris Gayle (204 v UAE at Napier) - DIDN'T EVEN TURN UP MAAAAAAAAAAAN. But he did get a double.

    Semi finalists: Australia, New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka - nup
    Leading run scorer: Williamson - nup
    Leading wicket taker: Hazlewood - not even close, probably wouldn't get a bite of it even if he did play every game.
    Highest individual innings scorer: Finch - nup
    Highest individual innings wicket taker: Starc - close but no cigar
    Which team will be the biggest disappointment apropos their pre-tourney standing: India, South Africa - nup. I guess South Africa sorta underachieved the group stage, but unlike in the past they lifted in the knockouts.
    Which team will over achieve apropos their pre-tourney standing: England - more like underacheive lol
    Player of the Tourney: Hazlewood - not even close
    Player of the Final: Faulkner
    Predict an upset in a group stage game: Ireland v Pakistan - hey Ireland did upset someone! Shame it was the wrong side.
    Biggest dud player of the tourney: Dhoni - not really
    Random prediction: A Top 8 won't make the quarters.
    Bolded = accurate.

    Wish I had stayed with my November prediction of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and India making the semis.
    5-0
