    This world cup was ok. Although it a lack of close matches made it a lot less enjoyable than it should have been.

    Would still rate it above 2007 WC obviously but I think I enjoyed 1987 2011 1999 1992 1996 and 2003 more than this.

    The ICC need to do something about the fielding restrictions in the last 10 overs and something to encourage reverse swing to bring some balance back into the game.
    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

    The bitterness from some people on here about Australia winning is hilarious.

    I thought it was awesome but now I've read this thread and it turns out it actually sucked. Damn, just wasted 6 weeks of my life.

    Was definitely a good WC, still not a fan of the format as it is and I'd say the KO matches of 2011 were much much better than this one. The rules as they are definitely suited the NZ/AUS conditions which helped make it the event it turned out to be. The biggest gain from this WC was the increased standard of associate nations compared to the last WC.

    Decent, but so many knockout games being easy victories takes a fair bit away from it. Then again, SA vs NZ might have made that worth it.

    Loved it.

    Minnows were better - less 80 all outs. Games were much more fun to watch. Plus Afghanistan and Ireland were awesome.

    But let's not shy away from how mediocre the knock-outs were. Great semi, awesome individual performance from Guptil in one quarter and that's about it. Oh and Wahab was delicious vs. Australia.

    Preferred the knock-outs more in 2011. Aus vs. Ind qf, NZ vs. SA qf, and Ind vs. Pak semi were gun as. Ind vs. SL final was edge of seat until the last 25 overs or so.

    Plus, 2011 had Ireland defeating England. Never forget that.

    I've liked every World Cup except 2007 though so don't mind me. And even 2007, if it didn't end in such a farce it would have probably won me over anyway.

    yeah decent tournament couple of close knock out games would have tipped it to the good cat.
