Well done Sri Lanka for reaching their second WT20 final. Great game. They were excellent, defending a low score and Pakistan pulled a South Africa and choked. That score was easy to chase but they blew it. Bad shot by Hafeez, if he stayed in they could have done it. Afridi needs to retire, he was awful, Razzaq should have played instead. Malinga is just too good, Mendis bowled very well and Herath was excellent. I really hope Sri Lanka go on to become WT20 champions, they deserve it. Unlucky in 2 World Cup finals and in the WT20 2009 final so hopefully Sri Lanka wins the final on Sunday.

I'm looking forward to West Indies vs Australia tomorrow, COME ON WEST INDIES. Hoping for Gayle to make a big score.


My Rankings for the T20 World Cup Tournaments

1)2009 - I really enjoyed this tournament, I attended a few games. Many cracking games.

2)2007

3)2012

4)2010

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

I would really like to see West Indies win this one. Been a while, a long while since they won anything big.

and Ohmygod, i can't believe people these days argue about sports tournaments being great or not, its everyone's own opinion and depends on who you're supporting. And for the sake of it, i'll say this tournament did have many good competitive matches, every tournament does. Arguing about it being 'great' is stupid because if you're a fan of cricket you'll enjoy every tournament anyway.

i can't wait for it to get completely washed out so the winner is whoever finished higher in the past 3 tournaments, subtracting any games played under a full moon, but you get 1.5 extra for every 6 you hit x the ratings of the match

Competitive? yes, it's really competitive to settle for a score that secures your progression rather than trying to win the game.

The rain had nothing to do with WATTO smashing your inept bowling attack around the park

Why not? Reaching for a qualification score is as interesting as reaching for a target score.
Defending for a draw instead of winning on the last day of a test match is similar

Of course, it was the rain. India had packed themselves with spinners, who found it difficult because of the wet ball. The same spinners performed well against all other teams.

And anyway, Australia outperformed India, India outperformed Pakistan and Pakistan outperformed Australia Which is what makes T20 awesome.
