    England, have been famous as World cup chokers and I dont see them winning a cricket World cup. Out of all the teams, ngland, have been the only team to make it into 3 World cup finals but have failed to win it even once. All teams except England who have made it into a World cup final, have happened to win it atleast once.
    Why?

    when they put together a top-class ODI team, they will have a chance.

    The question is when though.

    Also, why do you refer to the English as they when you are English?

    England treats their Ashes like India treats their World Cup. I'd much rather win a WC than win a test series in England, but England and Australia would much rather win the ashes than the world cup.

    So they don't care as much, so younger players don't really focus on that format. England would be happy if they were the number #1 test team and the #7 ODI team in the world. India would be happy if we were the #1 ODI team and #7 test team in the world. To each his own.

    To answer the question though, they'll probably win it right after Denmark, though before Italy.

    No they wouldn't.

    You can stereotype the fans if you like, but I guarantee you the board wouldn't like that.

    Tell me why in the past few years (say since the test series win over Australia in 2001 until late 2005), India have sucked in ODIs a hell of a lot, yet have done fairly well in tests, particularly in the Ganguly era... and its this era which is deemed as one of the most successful points of Indian cricket.

    Everyone was happy with the team under Ganguly even though they were losing ODI final after ODI final. Why? Because they were competing against the best test teams in the world, home and away.

    You try and tell me that the current Indian team is happier now that they're dominating ODIs yet have lost a test series to Pakistan and drawn against an injury ridden England team. Because point blank, the administration aren't.

    India would much much much rather win the test series against WI than the ODI series.

    Agree with everything. but isn't reaching 13 or 15 finals in a row a success ? We did lose most of those finals, but by no means I would count that as poor ODI performance.

    One has to also keep in mind that in a lot of those finals, we met an all time great ODI team.

    Maybe I should rephrase. When I say ODI, I mean the WC and other tournaments...but especially WC. Both of us have only anecdotal evidence to back up our claims, but I am certain that a WC victory would be more celebrated in India than any test series win, anywhere, at anytime, against any opponent. Period. I would be suprised if you disagreed with this.

    I would be expecting them to win the WC during the Aussie & Kiwi WC... It took them many years to get the ashes and it will take them many years for WC too...
