The 2007 World Cup changed the terms of the debate around cricket. For India, the tournament turned out to be a national tragedy; for the first time in years there was a palpable weakening of the foundations of the country's universal obsession. For the hosts, West Indies, it almost put an end to the dream of creating a unified political, social and economic entity. For Australia, the world cup triumph was accompanied by a sense of déjà vu which was evident in the muted celebrations.
