West-Indies is playing very good under Brian Lara's captainship and Lara has also announced that this will be his final one day series and so this might be his world cup and Sri-lanka is also playing at its top form these day's and so my guess is it will be a West indies-Srilanks finals..what are your views?

the possibility is very low SL perfomance is not so impressive to be world cup finalist

Sri-lanka has improved a lot in the last series itself and stars like sanath jayasurya and muralidharan are in top form and they have got a new star to watch out for in malinga - might be a sensation in this world cup.Just wait and watch ..... Anyway's, thanks for responding

I will also support my India..no doubt in that.But, looking at the fact, west-indies looks to be hot favourite for sure and alsos ri-lanks will be thedangerous team for this world cup for sure.Watch out players like jayasurya, lara,gayle, muralidharan and malinga this time.India might also shine a bit with zaheer and ganguli who are the only two who are looking good... Anyway's, thanks for responding

west indies an make it to the finals but sri lanka ,naa man i dont think so they can go all the way ,there are much better team than them like south africa,new zealand and india and pakistan ,i think they dont have that killer instinct that they used to have in 96 world cup

Srilanks was not playing at its best and i also agree that.But, just look at its performance in the recently concluded series.It is coming up like anything with Sanath Jayasurya firing from all sides and Malinga is emerging a sthgeir new super star and ofcourse their evergreen super star Muralidharan is alway's there.So, according to me, it will be West-indies-Sri-Lanka finals in this world cup. Anyway's, thanks for responding

India will not travel much in this world cup simply because of Dravid's captaincy issue and only bright thing which might be in india's favour is souran ganguly's batting and his presence might make adifference to india but maynot be enough to take it to finals.But, west-indies is sure to win the world cup and the team they might face in the finals is sri-lanks Anyway's, thanks for responding

Yes, both these teams are strong and bound to enter the finals of this world cup according to me and West-indies will be charged more here just because Brian Lara has announced his retirement from one day matches after this world cup.So, presenting him with the world cup and that too in home will be tremendous isn't it? Anyway's, thanks for responding

Australia entering finals is definitely not my view and even though i would like to see india in the finals it may not be possible with Dravid as captain and many other factors are going against india this time, so it is not the favorite to lift the cup for sure.... Anyway's, thanks for responding

Yes, cricket is a game of luck and that too one dayer's are the most unpredictable isn't it? even then West-Indies for me stands hot favourite to win the cup and srilankans might be the team facing West-Indies in the finals... Anyway's, thanks for responding

WEST INDIES FOR SURE!!!! Could be Sri Lanka, could be India (after the way they played in the final Pepsi Cup match). Never rule out Australia. It would be poetic justice if it were to be a SL v WI final considering that was how it should have been in 1996. Just hoping to see Lara score a whole lot of runs in this tournament and hopefully lift the trophy.

Yes, atlast i also found my match.Thank you.Here, everybody are in favour of Aussies and haven't heard anyone favouring west-indies winning to win the world cup here.More over, as you said Brian Lara holds the key and playing in last one dayers of his carrier and with crowd support, he is bound to perform for sure... Anyway's, thanks for responding

I see almost everyone in favour of Aussies in finals but only difference will be in the next team in the finalsBut, i am opposite of all of you here and Aussies will not even enter the finals here and mind you West-Indies will be the team to watch for with Brian Lara firing in all sides andthis being his last one day international, he will want to prove something...just watch out Anyway's, thanks for responding

You are also not an exception in believing that Australia will make it again.Just wait and watch the world cup, you will see the fact and West-Indies will be the team to watch out for.Take my words.....they are really in a strong position to lift the world cup this time around.... Anyway's, thanks for responding

why wont u think india or south africa or australia they are under perfect position to play and i think among these one will be the winner comparing all the matches they won a lot encourage through audience

It is not that i don't want India in finals, but i am just imagining things which might come true seeing and judjing the forms of all the teams and do you still thaink that Inida is in top form.In fact, india is playing good in indian soil and not in foreign soil and that also all because of Ganguly and Ganguly might play a lone battle for india in the world cup, who know's... Anyway's, thanks for responding

i dont think so.. i think South Africa will reach the final because he is the world's best team. And pakistan will also reach the final. South Africa will win the world cup 2007.

So, you seems to be little different here in thinking taht Aussies will not be in finals.But, you are also not in favour of West-Indies here and Pakistan without shoib Akthar cannot perform well and even if shoib is inluded in the team he will not be out of controversy and chances of missing is more....

This Aussies team is the most common favourite among all and infact they have also proven to be a strong team time and again.But, in this world cup surely they fail to succeed and west-indoes looks to be a favourite team to win this time and maybe they will have to face sri-lanka as they are also getting into top form with old horse sanath jayasurya playing at his best. Anyway's, thanks for responding

well i think only west indies may be in finals of world cup. along with west indies , australia may be there, because australia is the best team ever and have a trophy of many world cups. what do you think.

West-Indies is the right choice for finals entry and i am not sure of the other part where you said, Australia will be in finals and according to me, this is the world cup Australia has to forget as their downtrend will start from this world cup onwards....... Anyway's, thanks for responding

Being an Indian i also want India not only to reach the finals but also to win the world cup.But, many factors are going against India this time.I feel first of all, Dravid should be changed from captaincy and should be given to Ganguly again and this one major move will turn things in Indian favourf or sure and team combination will look far better with ganguly as captain and seing the reacent form, i should favour for West-Indies to win the world cup. Anyway's, thanks for responding

well i dnt think these two team can come to the finals becasue then australia has to be eliminated and i think that is not possible or may be we can say that easy, they are in very god form and also they are playing with full strength. so they have a strong team lined up and every player is in form. when ever they are in crisis a player does com eup and play a good inns and hussey is a dam consistent player so they are very hard to beat. so i think australia will be in the finals.

Australia are favourites of almost every persona nd just wait and see the world cup.This world cup will be the starting point of Aussies downtrend....take my words and Aussies cannot replace players like Mcgrath, Warne etc and so even in test matches Aussies will go down....
