    Ok, so seriously, how was this WC overall?

    Personal opinion. Decent, but slightly disappointing overall.

    Ok, could have been better, associates were the highlight. Not enough close games.

    Lots of great moments, but the WC had the potential to be so much more.

    I suppose it's disappointing because there were a lot of potential great moments that never materialised. Ireland making the QFs. Afghanistan/UAE/Scotland upsetting a Test nation. India making the finals. NZ winning the cup. There was a lot of build up without a satisfying climax.

    So many games billed to be great contests on paper also failed to deliver. And the semi-finalists were more or less who every pegged before the WC.

    There were good games and good cricket, but overall...yea, disappointing.

    Yeah, agreed. Proud of NZ, but overall I'd say I enjoyed 1999, 1996, 2003 and 2011 more.

    Neutral fan here. Was a lot of fun to watch. New Zealand were a great feel good story, it's a shame they fell at the last hurdle, but they can be proud of themselves. Had me rooting for them in the final and I was really sad when they lost (still am since it's so soon after the match).

    Of course, personally, I only have 2011 to compare it to. I haven't been watching cricket long. I thoroughly enjoyed the tournament and it only reinforces how much I like this sport and how glad I am that I discovered it.

    6/10. Better than 2007, probably worse than 1999 and 2011. Apart from the two Eden Park matches and the Pakistan/South Africa I found most of the "Big 8" matches rather underwhelming, particularly in the knockouts. Associates were fun and it's a utter shame that they'll be gone, but there were a few games that the new rules really exposed them. **** format doesn't help either.

    Boring. Too many 300+ scores which made toss very important. And Australia won again

    But still a bowler was the player of the tournament, which is great

    This is the highest standard of cricket we've had in a World Cup. 5 genuine contenders. Strongest minnows ever, and a decent Bangladesh.

    Despite the high amount of tons, quality bowlers were able to dominate. If the ICC has their way, we will never see a WC like it again.

    I hope the graphics at the bottom of the screen will be discontinued. I can watch Fox News any time.

    In terms of presentation it was rubbish ftr. ESPN/Star Sports were horrid. But what can you do?
