    Weren't Aussies smashed 4-0 in England by England during their last visit? Australia's record in world events over the last few years hasn't been all that great apart from 09 champions trophy.

    I'd have England and SA as favs for winning it all along with Pakistan (u never know with them).

    India will probably struggle due to crap bowlers and openers. Would love it if they gave Umukt Chand a chance to open, dude's a big match player and we desperately need an opener, no better opportunity I say.

    my 2c,

    England will make the semis, home conditions, strong batting line up, but lack the bowling depth after the first 15-20 overs, will make the final if Broad and/or a 4th bowler fire

    South Africa also to make the semis, very strong bowling line up, but are overly reliant on a few batters, so have a good chance to make the final, but i dont think they will.

    Australia, have a very strong attacking batting line up, with good bowling. Probables to make the final, but susceptibilities to swing may cost them.

    Sri Lanka are the wild card, some very good players in form atm, i have a feeling they will make the final but lose out to Australia.



    New Zealand will cause an upset or two, with McCullum at 6 to finish in great form, and two opening bowlers in form as well, but are too susceptible to slow starts and/or top order collapses. Hopefully Guptill can fix that when he comes back, but i doubt we will make the semis

    England hopes probably rest on Bresnan being fit and back to speed so to speak. He adds so much when he is fit as the 4th pace bowler and at home I think England should reach the semis at least. After that it is all on a bit of luck as to who performs on the day but with 2x new balls, home conditions and a good pace attack England will probably never have a better chance of winning a tournament.

    Why isn't Lord's a venue?

    Edit: in fact they're only using 3 grounds. Seamy roads unlikely come the semis.

    Pakistan have a good chance of making the semis - they will be touring Scotland/Ireland beforehand so they'll be reasonably acclimatized before the tournament proper.
    After that, it'll hinge on whether the guys can hold it together. We do tend to play well in England.

    Can't see Sri Lanka progressing from the group stage tbh.

    With India, their chances hinge on two things:
    1) their openers
    2) Their seam bowlers

    with 2 being a much bigger concern.

    I'd opt for Rohit and Pujara to open - think that's a combo that might work ok in England.
