    My vote goes to Kenya. A team with lot of potential but are not backed up as well

    I support Bangladesh ATM, i think they have got alot of potential!!!! Most of their players are very young and in 3 to 4 years time they will be atleast like the West Indies (current team) as they would have experience aswell , and i reckon they will get alot of success in the coming future.

    Mcgrath said he is fond of the genius "Akram would power through the crease and do whatever he wanted with the old and new ball"

    Allan Border "If I ever get a chance to be reborn as a cricketer, I would want to be Wasim"

    Richards, Tendulkar and Waugh described Akram as the most dangerous bowler they had ever faced.

    Bangladesh have the potential with all the young players they get, but I personally back Kenya.

    Bangaldesh for me. They're a struggling team, no doubt, but they've got some talent that should come good in a few years, and they can pull off a win every few months. And, unlike Zimbabwe, they're definetely heading in the right direction.

    Bangladesh.. I have seen them play, they have alot of potential.. they are under alot of pressure from other international teams to perform well.. they are improving by the game.. i just seem to enjoy the likes of Kapali, Ashraful, Mortaza and now Nafees of late..

    Used to enjoy Zimbabwe's cricket but have lost interest with the politics within the team and its management..

    Ireland, Scotland and Holland.

    Zim and Kenya have had too much destructive internal cricketing politics to deserve anyones support and Bangladesh has enough people that they don't need me.

    Netherlands.

    Who can't support a team with such names as van Noortwijk, van Bunge, Seelaar, Stelling, ten Doeschate, Schiferli, Scholte, van Troost, Lefebvre, van Oosterom, Zuiderent...go the real minnows.

    Bangladesh. Tons of potential there with batsmen like Shahriar Nafees, Mohammad Ashraful and Aftab Ahmed, a wicketkeeper like Mushfiqur Rahim and bowlers like Mashrafe Mortaza and Enamul Haque Jr.

    Anyone who seriously "supports" a substandard side just for the sake of supporting them is doing the game a great disservice.
    I love seeing the substandard sides get thrashed, by whoever of the up-to-standard sides, but sure as hate to see those games being classified ODIs and if I had the chance I'd strip that status of every single one of them.
    Kenya's progress in WC2003 was one of the many things that made it such a terrible tournament.
    Substandard sides, obviously, have their place in competitions like the World Cup but there's no reason whatsoever to classify the games "ODI".

    so if it was up to you the only test sides in history would be England and Australia?

    How dare they support their home country!

    The Bangladeshis, well, they should all cheer for India, the Kenyans should be upset when they do well.

    Or something.

    Unlike Richard I (in common with a lot of Brits, I suspect) generally root for the underdog in any sporting comp, unless a team I actively support is playing them. The Ashes aside, one of the greatest moments of last summer was the Banglas getting up to beat the Aussies in that ODI. I think you'd have to have a pretty stony heart not to say "fair play" to them.

    On a more parochial note, I would like to see Scotland, Ireland & Holland do well at the WC. All Europeans together & all that!
