Now we see that England cricket team is playing some excellent cricket.It seems that they might win the world cup this year.Do you think that they can make it true?

I am not very optimistic about England winning the world cup although the team is in the form of their life and this is their best chance to win the cup first time in the history. The reason is their balling more than their batting. Their fast ballers are used to seaming wickets like that of England or fast bouncy pitches like that of Australia. As seen in their last tour to India they are not that effective on slow Indian Pitches. They have got only one world class spinner that is Swan. You can't win world cup in Indian sub continent with one spinner. I therefore very much doubt they will be able to move beyond semis however cricket is a funny game nothing can be said untill last ball is balled or last run is scored.

Yes i also see their improvement,they can be the title contenders i think.But i think in the world cup the form doesn't matter at all,the thing which matters is how you play at that particular match at that particular day! We have seen many upsets before in the cricket world cup and i think this year also we are gonna see some of them.But from India i would obviously like them to win it!
