You can have your opinion. This tournament has been very very good in the Super 8 with many competitive and close matches and unpredictable group winners. Till the last day of the group event nobody was sure who would qualify and that made it much more exciting.

SL vs NZ - NZ defended their total after a great start by SL. Went to super over. Super exciting match - A+

Eng vs WI - Gayle's and Charles' entertaining knocks only to be outmatched by Morgan's onslaught. A

Pak vs SA - SA almost won with a small total till Umar Gul went ballistic. Excting till the last over on who would win the match A+

Aus vs Ind - One sided, rain affected match. B

Eng vs NZ - Nothing much special in this match but not a bad match either B+

SL vs WI - GAyle failed and this was also one-sided - B

Aus vs SA - Another one-sided match where SA panicked B-

Ind vs Pak - Exciting for being the best rivalry in cricket today. But, Pak should have been more competitive here A-

NZ vs WI - WI defending a small score, Super over, NZ panicking - great match A+

SL vs Eng - ENg last chance to qualify and they blew out. They came close because of Samit Patel but were not able to make it A-

Aus vs Pak - The matches which decide on who go to the semi's and that made this exciting. Even though AUs got demolished, the way they were trying for the qualifying score exciting - A

Ind vs SA - Ind fails to qualify but win the match by 1 run and the match could have gone either way. And entertaining match to end the SUper 8 A+

Other than a brief lull in the middle, that was 8 out of 12 matches that were good in the Super 8s. And, that is what that has made this tournament very entertaining. I can gladly watch this kind of tournament throughout the year instead of meaningless bilateral test matches.

For me, the T20 tournament have always ranked as below

1) 2007 - This tournament was what made T20 quite popular among the majority of cricket fans and the final is a testament to that
2) 2012
3) 2009
4) 2010
