    You were WRONG on the Polls !

    The Polls on the Frontpage have Pakistan as the favorites on taking the ICC Cup this year.
    And they're OUT already !

    Ponder over how the majority of voters could vote for them. Well the best reason to give is it was a knockout 8D

    Anyways, Aussies are 2nd & India 3rd...

    So what's your say ?
    Cheers,
    Rickson !

    Easy - as has already been raised in a number of threads, the question 'who do you think....' is replaced by 'who do you want....' in the minds of many voters.

    A good point raised in your first-ever post to CricketWeb. Welcome to the fold, Ceo.

    Thanks for the kind comments luckyeddie !

    as has already been raised in a number of threads
    Sorry I missed that....

    Well yes, as you point out rightly.... "Who do you WANT" may have been the factor.
    But then that begs...
    Are most of the voters Pakistanis ?
    Or girls loving the handsome **** cricketers ?

    This shows that these poll's results are rubbish.It wasn't a case of "who do u want" , ppl thought Pak was the fav just coz they had defeated Aus in Aus in a onedayer series,most ppl voted just after that series,however Pak lived upto their reputation of an unpredictable team!

    I don't know about others, but i voted for INDIA!!!

    I'm hopefull that India will win it, Mark2 will blast the opponent bowlers in the initial overs with the help of Captain Ganguly, while Tendulkar,Yuvraj and Kaif will show no mercy with the bat either.

    The only name he's missed is Sehwag so........ !!!

    Well my take is probably this match will turn out to be a TOUGH contest & no one but Sachin will play well from the Indian side.
    Am I going to turn a fool tomorrow ?

    Did'nt Mom always say Shut up if you don't know anything - :lipsrsealed:
    LOL

    Cheers mates !

    I think the fianl will be b/w the two best teams, India and Australia.It will be an interesting contest b/w the best batting side in the world(india) verses one of the best bowling side(aus)

    If you're looking for best 2 teams in the World, South Africa adn Sri Lanka (owing to home ground) come in ahead of India IMO.

    By the way, if England beat India in this Tournament, does this mean us English can crow about beating India in the most recent series between the 2 nations?

    Unless The Indians get over confident & takes things for granted against the Brits, there is no way England can beat the Indian team.

    I do believe SA and Aus have an Edge over India, mainly coz they are better fielders, but i'm hopfull India will make it to the final , and then its any body's game

    I'll take that as a yes then.

    For the record, the last one day series between England and India was drawn 3-3.

    May be pedantic, but that is, and will remain, the case until the next tour of India by England I guess.

    Well.. fantastic India is currently 115/5 against Zim...
    admittedly they seem to be recovering well after being 87/5 and they are maintaining a run rate over 6. but a big point here is that Indian fans have said they have the best batting line up in the world- well Ganguly, Tendulkar, Singh and Mongia have all been removed by Douglas T Hondo for little contribution (highest being 13).
    Has anyone even heard of mr hondo?
    Dravid and Sehwag are exceptions with reasonable scores
