    This post is about onedayers not tests!

    Most boring must be Hussain, lousy batter, as his dad said had he been available for India, he wouldn't have evr made it to the national team.

    Mate u might wanna rephrase that we won the Natwest , arent u forgetting India lost like 7 others ?

    I know this is a rejuvinated indian team blah blah .... but if u dont realize there are nations like Pakistan , N.Z , Australia , South Africa , England , Sri Lanka and the west Indies after the wlcup :P
    ( i trust the underdogs will do well too )

    I wish them good luck , but winning this doesnt mean India is a world champion.... its still Australia , thats hard to say being a kiwi :P

    Who said that Aussies aren't the champs?? Even if they loses all the matches till the next WC they willstill be the champs untill then!

    WE are talking about tyhe next WC.Aus aren't gonna make it in my opinion, NZ??? They are an overrated team, u can forget them really.

    India is way better than other teams u mentioned, only SA have the edge over us, but like i said SA won't make it coz of ho,me pressure!

    Dress Rehearsal? Yeah, OK. Only missing seven Test Nations. Drawing anything from that tournament is both deluded and foolish. It's merely an indicator to how things are progressing. And is full of positives for both India and England but in no way makes them favourites for the WC.

    INDIA DO HAVE A GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING IT.AUS WILL BE FAV'S AS USUAL, SA TOO WILL BE TIPPED AS FAV'S.HOWEVER THE HOME FCTOR WILL GO AGAINST SA, WHILE IF AUS DO MAKE THE MISTAKE OF GOING IN WITHOUT WAUGH THEN THEY MIGHT LOSE THE RACE HALF WAY THROUGH!!

    I DO THINK ENG CAN IMPROVE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE RETURN OF CADDICK THEIR BOWLING WILL GET A BOAST.HOPEFULLY THEY WILL MAKE IT TO THE SUPERSIX, PAKIS HAVE A FLUKY TEAM , THEY SHOULDN'T GO BEYOUND THE FIRST ROUND REALLY.

    "And is full of positives for both India and England but in no way makes them favourites for the WC."

    What was so positive about the English team's performance?? Letting India off the hook at 145-5 ?? Not many team would have lost the match after being in such a commanding position!

    too much hype already. lets wait until our team shows some consistency. there is a long way to go and plus our bowling needs to get way better !

    yup i agree with you

    especailly on the bowling part , India seems pretty good in that field , but then never show constitency ( might have spelt that wrong )
