    what are the odds of Pakistan beating Aus?

    Ian chappell ruled the chances of Pakistan out.. but i still think that the pakistani spinners may play a crucial role..

    Pakistan can beat anyone, Pakistan scored 160 odd against this Aussie side, and if it wasnt for utterly stupid Afridi captaincy, Australia might have found themselves in a closer contest.

    Missed the favorable line movement on Pakistan. Bet Pakistan at +450 last night, and for some reason they are bigger underdogs now.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    Put me down in the 'Pakistan are going to get pumped' camp. If they survive the first 6 relatively unscathed, they might put up a decent total for their spinners to bowl at though.

    Pakistan will get destroyed by Australia. I don't buy the "Pakistan are so unpredictable that they might just pull an upset" argument. Pakistan have been VERY predictable against Aus. They predictably **** their pants each time they take the field against them. I would love to be proven wrong, and of course I'll be hoping/praying to be wrong, but I somehow doubt it.

    While still maintaining my stand that Pakistan is no way one among the top 4 teams in this tournament, it will be crowning of them as T20's Australia should they get past them, and make it 3 finals in a row. Plus if they manage a final win, it will be such a balm on their otherwise bleeding affairs, both on field, and off it, in other formats.

    Surely they can't let continue Australia's domination of them like Undertaker's Wrestlemania record? Law of averages suggest they have to come good against them.

    Australia all set to do a repeat of last 3 One day world cups. They might have after all turned the corner as far as this format is concerned. It's almost amusing no team has managed to quite dominate all 3 formats at the same time. India and South Africa dominate tests and their t20 teams have sucked. Australia's fall from the heights in test cricket has corresponde with their rise in t20s while they still maintain an iron grip over ODIs.

    Maybe Ponting has had the last laugh when his theory about the inverse corelation between tests and t20s which was generally laughed at and ridiculed then (owing to having reference to India as an example).

    I had predicted Sri Lanka to be the team of this tournament, they have still underperformed imho, but fact that TilDil appears to have shrugged of his bad form has improved their chances considerably in a format where even cameos can turn a game on its head. On this track they are as dangerous as anyone and start as favorites in my book against England.

    England's story has been the most fairy tailish. They were on the edge of first sound elimination thanks to some silly duckworthless crap rule, but benefited from a timely rain interruption against Ireland. But from there it has been quite some imperious march. Their main strength is the Irish import Morgan. He is ridiculously talented and has not only glued the middle order together but also ghas become quite a finisher as well. However the loss of KP will hurt them. Their bowling is also a bit suspect on this kind of a pitch.

    Jeez I'll be filthy if any team other than us win. I mean, we've been the best team, and if you look at the win-loss percentages yada yada ****ing yada.

    FMD, if it's Us v England in the final, I didn't bring my Australia ODI shirt either. Fail.
