Though Indians have the right mixture of youth and experience, they must be careful in playing a good number of experienced guys in the key matches. Though youngsters have shown lot of promise, their are found to be suspect during pressure situations.

I think New Zealand is one of the best team when it comes to the proper balance of youth and experienced players who have great skills and also the power hungry to perform well in the series where all the cricket playing nations compete for the ultimate supremacy that is the World Cup. They have been always very stable as the performing team but I guess they always run short of luck because they never won the World Cup. But this team has the potential in their players because they are very good in every department and I will not surprise if they can somehow manage to win the World Cup.

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.

I feel India has the right blend of youth and experience in this world cup. As we have senior world class players like sachin, sourav, dravid, kumble who should guide yougsters like pathan, sreesanth to perform at their best if India has to win the world cup. Our batting is strong, bowling is impressive. So if the Indian team plays to their full potential and are consistent throughout the world cup and get better as tournament progresses to semis and finals then India will surely have good chance to lift the world cup.
