    I'm obviously looking forward to seeing Australia win the WC again! But seriously, my take is similar to yours. I just hope that South Africa stop choking. It's horrifying that a team of such quality has never won the WC.

    I hope Srilanka takes this world cup . The Islanders are always at final but cannot make it all the way .

    Yes I am Supporting Aussie for 5th World cup Title .

    Re: 2015 Cricket World Cup

    I will go with either Australia or South Africa. Both the teams are looking quite good, imo.
    And despite of being Indian, I would have to admit that this team sucks.
    England are dark horses, I think.

    Yeah, that would be a good farewell for Sangakkara and Jayawardene, as they're retiring at the end of the tournament.

    Yep I like Jayawardene cricking Skills and his Patience in longer format . He his second to Tendulkar in longer format of the game . Unlike Aravinda he rarely makes Mistakes .

    Is Malinga the destroyer in the Team ??

    He actually came back from injury earlier today. Malinga played in a warm up match against South Africa.(the Proteas won.)

    I say Middle order in Indian Team is Shakky at the Moment . If Genius Dhoni doesn't figure this out he will be big trouble .

    Seeing Yesterday Warm up match . They certainly need a good Middle Order Player who creates trouble in Middle Over . Yuvraj was one Decent Player but he is retired isn't he ?

    Oh good India vs Pakistan . It will be a Tense Battle Arena .

    Anyway zero hype for England . I do not see England will win it btw .

    Middle order isn't the only problem here. Problem is, we have an entirely new team, except few experience heads, such as Virat and MSD, which aren't really good players, when it comes to playing at bouncy wickets and Australia like conditions.
    Talking about Yuvraj, no, he is still around, but was injured before a long while and hence not picking him up wasn't a mistake or anything either. He is 33 anyways and not in a good form either, so we need to build new squad now and it will take some time.

    I do not think the Present team is bad . But they will have hard time beating team like South Africa ,Australia at the moment . I see Yuvraj is still around .

    Do not give up you may never know untill the game is actually played . I remember my dad told me about 1992 World Cup England were really strong back then Courtsey Sir Botham was Exceptional those days . But Pakistan Under Imran Khan with his newbie team shocked everyone with their Performance and Won the World cup . Coincidentally the World cup was in Australia . So You may never know lol .

    Nyah, I don't trust this current team at all.
    I don't trust Raina, Sharma at all. Sharma is really talented batsman, but at the same time really inconsistent.
    Kohli has good days as well as bad ones, but he isn't playing particularly good at the moment.
    Raina is week on bouncy pitches, I don't see him working much on his technique, so not much helping out here, either.
    Our pacers are mediocre at the best, we have no Zaheer Khan or not even an experienced pacer who can guide other young once.
    I saw highlights of that old world cup and that Pakistani team, did pull out some awesome things. In fact my own country did it in England in 1983 and hence I am not writing off India completely.
    Though on paper, team is weak and certainly teams like Australia and Sri Lanka look better.
    Sri Lanka, Australia and South Africa are really dangerous once, with England as dark horse.

    They just need a Time off . Indian Team plays lot of Cricket than any other Country i believe . I think Back to back Test match and ODI Game just before World Cup made the Youth Team Fatique before WC . Maybe Captain Dhoni Should Motivate his Team to think beyond theor Weakness.

    He is Great Sportsperson Dhoni . He is just like Michael Jordan and Roger Federer . He is like calm before a Storm if Opponents thinks they are Winning they are quite mistaken . He plays Tactics really well and one of the few Powerful Sportsperson in a modern game .

    That will be great . I still believe 1999 World Cup Semfinals b/w Aussie and SA was a thriller .

    And 434 run Chase made by South Africa are the best Moments . I hope they make big in this World cup by breaking this Jinxs .
