Where:India, Pakistan and Sri LankaChampions: Sri LankaWho was there?The Test nations of England, Australia, West Indies, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and South Africa, with Zimbabwe and newcomers Kenya, United Arab Emirates and the Netherlands forming the minnows.Tournament StarThe diminutive but unbelievably brilliant Sachin Tendulkar – who scored 523 runs throughout the tournament despite India not making it further than the semis.Missed the pointThe crowd at Eden Gardens during the semi-final between India and Sri Lanka, who started throwing bottles and fruit onto the pitch to protest India's batting collapse. As a result of ongoing disruption, India were forced to forfeit the match (which they almost certainly would have lost anyway) to Sri Lanka, the first time in World Cup history.What happened in the Final?Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to field. Mark Taylor (74 from 83 balls, 8 fours, 1 six) and Ricky Ponting (45 from 73 balls, 2 fours) shared a second-wicket partnership of 101 runs. When Ponting and Taylor were dismissed, however, Australia fell from 1/137 to 5/170 as the famed 4-pronged spin attack of Sri Lanka took its toll. Despite the slump, Australia struggled on to 241/7 in their 50 overs. Herald Sri Lankan Aravinda de Silva - no-one had dominated a World Cup final to the extent that he did here. He took two catches and three wickets, including Australia's top-scorers Taylor and Ponting, then strolled to an elegant 107 not out. Handicapped by a slippery, dew-covered ball, Australia dropped several chances, but never looked like defending 241.Cricket is just like thatKenya beat West Indies in a qualifying match at Pune on Leap Year Day: Steve Tikolo, Kenya's only professional, top-scored with 29 out of 166, then Maurice Odumbe and Rajab Ali took three wickets apiece as West Indies crumbled for 93. The prize wicket of Brian Lara fell to a catch by portly, bespectacled keeper Tariq Iqbal; some thought it was the only ball he had held onto all day.
