World Cup 2015 review March 30, 2015

Not as boring as 2007

The 2015 World Cup reviewed in tweets

We asked readers...

... and we got a textbook definition.

Others looked at the tournament itself.

With Australia dominant yet again - winning their fourth World Cup in the past five - some tweeters wondered about the point of others competing.

Quite a few legends bid farewell, with Michael Clarke getting the perfect send-off.

The Associates made a statement, sometimes literally, as they fought against the proposal to shrink the 2019 World Cup to ten teams.

Not everyone was happy with the event, though, with the bat largely dominating the ball during the 49-day tournament, and only five matches going down to the final over of the chase.

Left-arm quicks, led by Mitchell Starc, Trent Boult, Wahab Riaz and James Faulkner, had outstanding tournaments to help redress the bat v ball imbalance.

A regular fixture did not feature at the World Cup, making at least one fan happy.

Some regular World Cup features, though, were around again.

Will they be around in 2019 as well?
