Thoughts on the 2007 Cricket World Cup.

So, the Cricket World Cup is now over. Or should I say, nearly two months of embarrassing farce is over. If the ICC wanted to make people dislike cricket, they did a nice job. I am flabbergasted that the final ended in almost pitch darkness, with the batsmen attempting to bat in the dim glow from the lights of the stands at the far edges of the field. What idiot thought it would be a good idea to play the final at a stadium not actually fitted with lights to allow night-time play, should the game run overtime?
