    Imagine India wins the WC, win against England, and win against Australia. Near impossible, but just imagine...

    You won't beat us. In fact I fancy us for a magnificent seven next summer.

    Then again, I fancy us for that every summer.

    A Draw in England and Australia would be make ecstatic. Would be awesome. WC win would be good too.

    You'd take winning the World Cup over a Test Series victory in Australia?

    Lol at you getting ecstatic with a draw in England but referring to a WC win as only good.

    I'd personally take a series in in SA over a WC, but a lot of people like WC. Winning against Australia in Australia, in my mind, would surpass winning the world cup the next three times, really.

    Not that excited about this year as I was at the start of last year, probably because of the lack of Tests.

    I am however looking forward to a month and a half of zero sleep during the World Cup. Will be great. Cricket all night, uni and studying all day (ha, who am I fooling).

    Given the cliche of the Asian obsession with ODIs, it's always good to find a true (ie Test) believer from that part of the world. I couldn't agree more - finally winning in India in 2004 meant a lot more to me than any of our WC victories. Although the 87 win was special, as it was Australia's first tentative step toward recovery after the debacle that was the mid-1980s.

    I think we're all looking forward to that - with varying degrees of optimism/dread/smugness.

    That's what it's all about, baseless optimism.

    You do realise that nobody has won a Test series in England since 2001 don't you? And that since then only India, South Africa and Sri Lanka have escaped with draws (escaped being a bit generous on the home team tbf). It's nothing to turn your nose up at, you know
