    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

    After tonight, it would have to be Australia but I dont expect them to win it

    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

    Oh really . When was last time you guys won a test match against India? Play on square turner , we will see how guys fare. It is very easy to beat India without Sehwag and Sachin. When both of these will come, we will see how you fair.
    Btw what happened to Ponting's pull shot against Roach or Ishant sharma at perth. He was hopping all around

    What has any of that got to do with a T20 WC though? Sehwag's not there and Tendulkar doesn't play international T20s.

    The entire short ball problem has been caused due to absence of Sehwag. He scores 30-40 of 20 balls and we are easily 50 runs in 5 overs.And this gives batsman at the other end time to play slowly. Gambhir and Vijay are the worst T20 opener ever. It is similar to Smith and Kallis. But due to absence of sehwagwe simply don't have anybody at the top to dismantle opposition.And so opposition bowlers are making merry . .

    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.

    Ridiculous statements. So disgusting, and not even backing it up as well.

    We will lose that game. But he will fire atleast 1 out of 3 games. So we have a chance in atleast 1 of the 3 games. This is looking pretty pathetic opening partnership. It is like 2 Miachel Clarke opening in first 6 overs.

    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.

    Oh really your countryman speaks India didn't deserve to be win the first T20 WC. Did you deserve to win the Sydney test ?

    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.
