NEW DELHI (AFP) - Ten magical moments from the World Cup which ended on Saturday: On yer bike, son - Captains of the 14 World Cup teams paraded at Dhaka's historic Bangabandhu Stadium for the opening ceremony in a fleet of brightly coloured rickshaws, the transport of choice in the teeming Bangladeshi capital. Indian singer Sonu Nigam and Bangladesh-based Runa Laila, as well as veteran Canadian rocker Bryan Adams, were the headline acts at the event. Malinga's hat-trick - Sri Lanka's king of sling claimed a second WCup hat-trick in a six-wicket haul against hapless Kenya in Colombo. Malinga sent back Tanmay Mishra, Peter Ongondo and Shem Ngoche in successive balls. K O'Brien's record century - Irish whirlwind Kevin O'Brien scored the fastest-ever World Cup century, off just 50 balls, as Ireland completed a stunning three-wicket win over England. Shoulder to shoulder after quake tragedy - Australia and New Zealand players stood shoulder to shoulder and observed a minute's silence in Nagpur on Feb 25 in honour of the Christchurch earthquake victims. "We are neighbours and brothers," said Ponting. Tait v Tillakaratne - Aussie Shaun Tait and Sri Lanka Dilshan squared up and Tait won hands down. Dilshan edged through the slips to enrage the fiery Tait. The Sri Lankan then pulled away from the crease just as Tait went into his next delivery stride, before the speedster had his man next ball, courtesy of a slip catch. Brother bother - Kamran Akmal's calamitous performance behind the stumps against Kiwis unleashed a stream of criticism and paved way for younger brother Umar to take over. That was until Umar hurt his finger and then his ankle and was accused by sections of Pakistan media of feigning injury to save his brother's job. Tweeting under fire - West Indian Chris Gayle said he was terrified when the team bus was stoned in Dhaka following the win over Bangladesh. But his fear didn't affect his tweeting addiction. "This is ridiculous. World Cup with so much security and this happens. Big joke. Every player lay flat," he wrote on his Twitter account. India and Pakistan united - Semi-final in Mohali between the two neighbours resulted in Pakistan's PM Yousuf Raza Gilani accepting an invitation from Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh to attend the match. Both leaders met the players and stood side by side as the national anthems were played. Hold the fireworks - Colombo organisers were a little too quick off the mark with the firework display arranged to coincide with the end of Muralitharan's last appearance on home soil. Samaraweera was still seeking the winning run against NZ when the night sky was prematurely lit up. Sachin's title at 6th attempt - Tendulkar was carried around the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai after finally capturing a WC winners medal at the sixth attempt.
