I think India will win this time around. I think this is the perfect chance for India to win the WC, because this time we are having well balanced squad with Experienced and Youth. India is having the strongest batting line up, likes of Sachin, Sourav, Dravid, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Sehwag etc, most of the players are in form and making valuable contributions for the team. India is having a strong team as compare to last WC squad, Now Inclusion of Dhoni, Pathan, sreesant, munaf, uttappa made India even more stronger. I think its a golden opertunity for the Indians to win the WC 2007 in West Indies Indian Batting mainly Depend on Sachin Tendulkar, He has a wonderful career so far, he made more runs than any one else in Odis and also tons, he can bowl seam up leg spin offspin, his bowling s an asset for INDIA, Sehwag, on his day he can belt any bowling line up he can bowl and he is a partnership breaker, Sourav, he has wonderful timing, after sachin he scored more runs for India, he can bowl and he is partnership breaker, Dravid is called THE WALL for his consistency, he is Mr dependable, Yuvraj is stylish left handed batsman, Dhoni a dangerous wicket keeper batsman, he can score 100 in 50 balls and also plays according to the situation. Indian bowling line up is also good, munaf is excellent with newball, ajit is great at reversing the ball. Zaheer is peak of his career, Irfan is young and brightful all rounder for India, Sreesant an aggressive wicket taking bowler, and not to mention about Harbhajan, he is class act, Anil Kumble a dangerous leg skidder rather than a spinner, he experience will benefit India in this WC. Biggest counter part AUS is struggling with injuries and lost their 6 out of 7 matches prior to the WC 2007 which includes a white wash in the hands of New Zealand, and loosing finals CB series finals to England 2-0.

Well i must say the India is surely equipped to win the world cup 2007 as it has very well balanced side with right blend of youth and experience. But as Dravid himself said that there are 6 to 7 key players, senior who will have to guide other team memebrs when it matters most. So role of sachin, dravid, sourav, bhajji, zaheer, kumble, dhoni, yuvraj will be crucial if India has to win the world cup this time. Besides India was runner up last time to aussies so nucleus of side must be much better preparaed this time round. But most imp. thing as you said will India have to be consistent enough to win match after match and play and better as tournament progresses for India to win the world cup. Indian team can surely do it but will it really be consistent enough for that to happen obnly time will tell. well let's hope india really does well and win the world cup 2007 and do indians everywhere proud and happy.
