New Zealand vs Australia
West Indies vs South Africa
all 3 results are not bad to bet on...
1) Windies have had the wood over India
2) RSA Full strength should beat a Pak without 3 of their best players arguably
3) 50-50 for me, Aussies play well back against the walls though
when none of the South American teams made it to the Socoor WC final, but then after i gave it a thought i realized that yeah offcourse there is more talent and more passion about the soccor in SOuth america, they still lack the facilities+ Disciplineand the infrastructure that the European teams have and thats why they are ahead in fianl and not the teams that are known for their passions+ skill for the game.
I think same might just happen with cricket....Soth Asian Countries have alot more passion + Skills(individual's talents) which can win you at times but in the long run teams with better facilites, discipline and better infrastructure will have better chance of winning tournaments.
