The Cricket World Cup 2007

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 !!!!
