CHURUMURI POLL: World Cup—good, bad, oh god?

The 2007 World Cup is just one game away from receiving its boarding pass for the home of one of the 16 participating teams: Australia or Sri Lanka. How was cricket’s “quadrennial showpiece” for you—good, bad, boring? How was the quality of cricket—the batting, bowling, fielding, umpiring? Have you still not recovered from India’s shock exit, or did you find solace in Matthew Hayden‘s innings, in Mahela Jayawardene‘s captaincy, in Shaun Tait‘s and Lasith Malinga‘s pace, in Herschelle Gibbs‘ sixes, in Dwayne Leverock‘s girth? Is there any match that is firmly etched on your cricketing memory, or will you only remember the tournament for Bob Woolmer‘s murder? Has the venue and the format helped cricket, or have the horrific timings left you yawning after 12.5 overs of the second innings to care? And on a scale of 1 to 10—one being ugh, 10 being wow—where would you rank the Cup?
