Was 2011 the best World Cup of all time? You wouldn't find too many
arguing against it. Claims that the tournament served to revive the
one-day international format aren't far off the mark. It had close,
engaging matches, a reasonable balance between bat and ball (and this in
a World Cup that was written off as a series of run-fests in the offing
before it began), and kept a subcontinent in thrall for most of its
duration. The favourites weren't overwhelmingly favoured, unlike in
previous years, and though they did make it to the title, they didn't
coast to it. The tournament also provided the cherry on the career cake
of possibly the best-loved cricketer of all time. This book attempts to
recapture the magic of the tenth edition of cricket's premier event.
