well , Earlier India had won the Cricket Worldcup in 1983 . At that time India was considered as a lad in the cricket world . And in 2003, India was considered as the hot favorite and many believed that India would win the worldcup . It was after a gap of 20 years . Unfortunately, India could not win it in 2003 . And now again, India is one of the hot favorites . Yet, it has lost against Bangladesh in the first match . Indian team has to work hard to prove itself and win the worldcup . However, Cricket is a game of uncertainity . Previous performance has nothing to do with the present/future position . It all depends on the actual performance in the field .

Iam an Indian and with all my heart I desire that India bring the world cup again. But we have to be practical in accessing our strength and weaknesses. Our batting line is more or less inconsistent, Bowling is far short of desired level of penetration. Agarkar can bowl wildly and wikets fall by fluke. Zahir khan pitches short and Gives many runs with very few wickets, Kumbleys Magic is over for world class batsmaan, Shree sant if guided properly can bowl with controlled pace and take wickets but in this world cup he may never get achance to bowl. The next match is with sri Lanka. They have a line up of Good bowlers and good batsman.Unless they fail by fluke their chances of winning are better.Even if we cros that, the great challenge will be from Newzeland, AUSTRALIA AND SOUTH AFRICA the ODDS ARE TOO HEAVY FOR INDIA TO LIFT THE WORLD CUP.
