    Road to the 2011 ODI World Cup

    One year out, who is going to win?

    Aus in good form now, but who knows what'll happen in the subcon?

    Do people think the IPL will hurt India in that many players will see India as a second home by then?

    Will the Saffies choke again?

    Personally can't wait.

    India will win without a doubt.

    Whichever team makes the finals against us, will have their asses handed to them (just like South Africa yesterday). Simple as that, nothing more to it.

    Mills
    Tuffey
    McKay/Southee/possible batting option
    Bond

    Possibly our best shot ever of taking out the world cup. Clearly going to lose in the semis to the runner up.

    Because ODI cricket is the same as test match cricket and is why we can use ODI records to compare test only players, like James Hopes with Don Bradman.

    SA to go out in the semi finals after getting to 200-1 chasing 220.

    Hard to go past Australia tbh. I really thought this summer they would decline, but they seemed to have gotten stronger.

    The WC final will be Ponting's last ODI.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Haha, good way to make a re-entrance.

    Anyway all I can say is I hope we get some decent cricket matches. Some decent suspense-filled matches is as good as impossible with the format chosen, which means basically most of the games are irrelevant, but with some close contests that'll be less of a problem than if most matches are one-sided like in the previous two WCs.

    Australia has hardly been tested in this summer's ODIs. Both Pakistan and the West Indies have been beyond dire that Australia is hardly breaking out a sweat at a moment. Mind you TBf to the West Indies, they have had a ****load of injuries. Pakistan? Maybe if they could play as a team for once and learn the basics, then you know what they can do.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Doesn't matter. Australia were in formidable OD form last year as well

    Being able to easily deal with lesser opponents is a good start in World Cups tbh....

    All depends if India can sort their bowling out.

    Their ODI batting line up is by far the best around. It says a lot for the strength of your top 6 when the weak link is Gautam Gambhir.

    However, as we saw at Rajkot, no matter how much the top order scores, the opposition is always in with a chance.

    If India can get even a halfway decent bowling attack, then on home soil I'd expect their batting to blow the competition away. Would be gun if Tendulkar could bow out of ODIs with a World Cup victory on home soil as well.
