The biggest gala after Olympics and Football has started. Let’s have a sneak preview on the teams:
Australia: The wounded lion is waiting to bounce back. Hit by injuries, the 3 time world champion has a point to prove.
Bangladesh: Winning once against many test teams including Australia cannot be discounted. This minnow can surprise a few.
England: Their worst patch in many years was sidelined after their hat trick victory against Australia in the recent VB Series. Flintoff holds the key.
India: A team of individuals. Studded with all time greats but when as a team, they fail.Most probably the final world cup of Tendulkar. Will he do an Imran Khan?
New Zealand: record chases against Australia in the recent series has done them a world of good. Dark Horses in all the times.
Pakistan: Hit by drug abuse, bad management and a lack lustre captain is not something one can boast of. But has the ability to surprise any team in the world.
South Africa: The Spanish Footbal Team of Cricket. Apart from Lady luck, they have everything. If she smiles on them, they will walk away with the cup.
Sri Lanka: A pack of individuals who gel together as a team. Minimal internal politics among the sub-continent teams is one of its strengths. Tipped to be the dark horse.Wholly dependent on Murali’s heroics.
West Indies: The hosts. Last world cup for Lara. Will the good old days come back? Only time will tell.
Others: In the world cup to add numbers.
Let the best team win !!!!
