    The format this time was a lot better, but we still have the 2 best sides of the comp, India and Australia, missing the final.
    They should have every team playing everyone else and the final being the best of 3 games between the top 2 sides.
    There is too much luck in cricket. Teams can be beaten by much worse sides who just have a lucky run.

    1 v 2, 3 v 4.

    Winner 1 v 2 to final, loser to meet winner of 3 v 4 for final place. No reward for consistency or wins during round play.

    A great final with scores tied, super overs identical and down to count back on boundaries scored with The Poms winning. Good luck to them but bad luck come The Ashes.
