Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
Quick wicket and Oz will win 19/20 matches
However, most of the pitches in the WI are not quick so I dont really see them as favourites I'm afraid

"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
India should never have won the first one
Likewise Pak in the second
I reckon it'll be NZ, Eng or maybe WI
Call it karma, bs, whatever, I just dont think this format lends itself to "form" or "the most talented"
It is simply too short to predict and any team can win on the day
Btw what happened to Ponting's pull shot against Roach or Ishant sharma at perth. He was hopping all around

What happened to short ball in test matches? Sehwag starts hitting from the first ball itself.So nobody bothers to ball short to him.
Hmm, I suppose we have to wait and see. Hell of a lot to put on one player though. What if he goes out early?
Thirdman, there's no need to be so defensive just because someone said something slightly negative about India. No one brought up their form in Test matches, where they're currently ranked number one. A slightly criticism of their T20 form doesn't mean they're suddenly the worst team in the world. And tbf, if India's fortunes rely solely on Sehwag going well, that's hardly the signs of a good team.
Haha so harsh
They're no Watson and Warner, but they've just been outdone by good bowling. Clear issues with their technique, rather than actually having no intent to score.
Did you deserve to win the 1999 WC ?
And please if India is not a good side because of reliance on Sehwag, then what happened to your side against India without Mcgrath. I remember plenty of Aussie writing rubbish execuse that Australia side of 2003/04 that played against India in OZ was not test class because of absence of Mcgrath .
And you are telling me not to be defensive.
