    England, although I'm not sure as to why that needs explaining.

    England, probably. But I am more concerned with individual performances and standard of play. Hopefully we will get great matches.

    Australia.

    World cricket needs a strong Australia really. India will continue to pump zillions regardless of its team being **** or not (IPL has become its best insurance policy to vagaries of performance of national team)

    England too, Just look at the 90s.

    But I do fear for Australia. For a nation of its size Aus has always amazed me with the talent it produced. World cricket simply cannot afford to have a middle rung Australia.

    So Australia it is. Despite Burgey.

    Australia. Their media and fans are more likeable in general (personal point of view) and I find that they invariably take both victory and defeat with grace. I'm not a fan of the brand of cricket played by England too. Good team yes, but aside from KP they are terribly sleep inducing and boring. And it's not the rate of scoring but the style really. Can watch Kallis and Dravid bat all day, can't say the same about Cook. Also feel Australia are being underrated a little. They have been beaten by India in India but most teams get beaten there. England have been second best to the Kiwis which is much more of a surprise. So yes, England are slight favourites but I'll be backing Australia.
