who is going to win the cricket worldcup this time.there are a lot of speculations going on. but as per my personal mathematics i think its going to be a close fight between india and srilanka because of home advantage and also there current forms and i hope it is india who wins. What do you say myloters!!

Unusually, this worldcup will start with almost 6 teams starting as favourites. I do agree to the fact that India and Sri Lanka besides being strong teams, will have the upper hand due to home advantage.. But the rest may look ordinary but they are the ones who rise to the occassion from nowhere. In 2007, Australia had faced a massive 4-0 defeat in a One Day series against New Zealand and they went on to win the world cup pretty comfortably at the end. So you can never write them off (teams like Australia, England and all) To add to this, teams like India and South Africa are known to crumble under pressure, specifically India's performance will solely depend on how they are gonna deal with the pressure of 'high expectation' As the end note - teams with Players who will rise to the occasion are gonna win the cup... I'm not sure the current Indian team have many like that (excluding Sachin and Gambhir)

I'm trying to keep my own expectations of India winning it low, so that I don't get heartbroken if they lose, also the excitement is double when we Win. Missed out about Yusuf Pathan.. He is definitely going to be the best performer specially because of the subcontinent conditions.. even though he is little weak against fast bowling, he is such a good player that he can afford to even give away few maidens and yet come back into the game....

Finally, after much speculation, tension due to injuries to key players, and much debate over the composition of the squad, the 15 players who will represent India at the World Cup have been identified. Kris Srikkanth, chairman of the national selection committee, insists that this is the best possible line-up, balanced and with the potential to win the trophy. A member of the 1983 World Cup-winning squad,Srikkanth says the selectors were not put under pressure to pick any specific player and team composition was discussed threadbare with coach Gary Kirsten and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. So, can Team India do a repeat of 1983, when Kapil Dev’s men rocked the world by beating the fancied West Indies in the final.
