Kudos to Pak captain to carry his team through diversity. Kudos to Srilanka to be able to come back from such situation and provide the entertainment to cricket lovers, Kudos to Gayle for keeping us guessing and carrying his bat while the rest failed.

These I think were the highlights of this world cup, besides the fact that India and Aus fell flat on face, while NZ whined about how Gul was screwin' with the ball and South Africa still not able to get over their curse!

Man of Series:
Bowling-Gul, Afridi, Mendis, Malinga
Batting- Gayle, Afridi, Kamran Akmal
Fielding-Sangakarra (or was it Jayawardana!)
