    Who here believes Aus won't be able to retain the Cup??



    I do think they are not the best team, especially without the W's they aren't the best team.

    i think there are better teams this time around... ie pakistan, and look how bad aussie were in the tri series... they are now much less of a force. i think they have lost the psychological edge they had in the last couple of years.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    I don't think any team should be written off at this stage. It all comes down to 1 day really.

    Look what happened last WC during the T'ment when they were written off....

    The Aussie Cricket team have a mental edge over any opponent, and they have this ability to switch on when needed....

    Australia has the capacity to retain the World Cup in the most convincing of fasions....



    However, this capacity to win is no stronger than was Pakistan's or South Africa's to win the World Cup 1999.... and look what happened to them.


    I agree with Tamara - it's the best team on the day.

    I still rate australia as the fav. They have one of the most complete packages and mentally strong....and most importantly can perform when it matters.

    But considering on form and reputation i would say india,pak,SA,nz,sl and eng all have good chances. If indian bowling attack strenthens up a lot then considering the batting line up we got i would put them as challenger number 1.

    I thought the topic is not about India winning the world cup, but Aus losing it.And I would say that's a given

    I would say that Australia will retain the WC, but it will be close as alot of teams have improved alot over the last few years

    Only a few months ago Australia were kings of cricket, best team of the 20th century etc, it scary what a few loses here and there can do to your reputation
