2015 Cricket World cup was boring, dull, long and predictable. ICC has done a great job in limiting the next world cup to 10 teams and hopefully 1992 world cup format will be repeated in 2019, where each game matters between equally match up teams.
Following are the highlights of 2015 Cricket World Cup, which will be remembered for years to come.
10. Few greats of the game missed out in this world cup: J.Kallis, Yuvraj Singh, S.Ajmal, S.Narine, K.Pietersen, A.Cook, D.Bravo etc.
