Where:EnglandChampions: AustraliaWho was there?The Test nations of England, Australia, West Indies, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa, with Zimbabwe, Kenya and newcomers Scotland and Bangladesh.Tournament StarLance “Zulu” Klusener, whose steely demeanour and railway-sleeper bat provided action aplenty right until the very last ball of South Africa's doomed campaign.Missed the pointOr rather, missed the call – Alan Donald, the legendary South African bowler, and not so legendary runner, whose mix-up on the last ball of the semi-final against Australia caused him to be run out, the scores to be tied, and South Africa to be on their way home.What happened in the Final?"An unworthy match produced worthy winners," noted Wisden Cricket Monthly. The game was eagerly anticipated, even though the Lord's crowd was more corporate than enthusiasts, but a contest that had started at 11.15, half an hour late, was all over by 4.35 because Pakistan, the most exciting side in the tournament, had gone to pieces when it mattered most. Needing a paltry 133 for victory, the Australians knocked them off just two wickets down, and celebrated what was not remembered as the best World Cup on record.Cricket is just like thatWho would have thought a ball change could put the cat amongst the pigeons as much as the change to the Dukes white ball did? Spread-betting companies failed to allow for the swinging white Dukes ball - one company estimated 240 to 260 wides in advance of the tournament, and were taken to the cleaners when there turned out to be 979.
