    I'm not sure, I think they might be surprised by New Zealand. It's a one-off, anything could happen.

    But it would be a very very very big surprise...
    Either there are a lot of NZ Fans who hope for a win or the people here search for a big surprise which chance is very low...

    I dont think, that Australia would lose against New Zealand.
    Australia could be kicked out by Pakistan, South Africa, India etc. but not by New Zealand...


    And i also dont think that New Zealand would rush into the final, if they will not play against Australia..
    In my opinion there are other teams form which you can expect this, but not from New Zealand.
    Sure, NZ has a great team, but i dont think that they will come so far..

    I really hope India will win it but they need to raise their game. Rmemeber its basically knock out in the first stage so if they slip up against Pakistan they're screwed. Same applies for Aussies. I hope New Zealand do us a favour and knock the Aussies out

    New Zealand are our bogey team in ODIs. However, in the big tournaments we tend to be able to beat them.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I think we have pretty good chances of winning this tournament.. IMO we always perform at our very best when playing against Australia.. and looking at the current form India has even if we were to face them or England in the semis we could get through to the finals.. and i think after that we hardly put a finals down..

    True, but in saying that you have to remember that, even though N.Z. beat Australia 3-1 the last time they met in the V.B. Cup Australia have bowled N.Z. out for low 100 scores the last time they met at the ICC trophy and World Cup.

    Why not?

    NZ's recent ODI form is far and away better than those 3's

    Add to that that NZ have a reputation for being good tourists, unlike Pakistan especially...

    How come everyone is talking about New Zealand as the ones to cause an upset and beat the Aussies? What about South Africa-with Gibbs, Smith, Klusener, Pollock and Ntini, or Pakistan-Inzamam, Akhtar, Sami, West Indies-Lara, Gayle, Sarwan, Chanderpaul, Sri Lanka, or my personal favourites USA
    Or England for that matter-Freddie Flintoff...need I say more

    Mainly because NZ face Australia first in pool play.
    I agree with what your saying...but so far this year NZ has the best winning percentage in ODI's with something like 92% & these wins haven't been built on easy-beats like Zimbabwe or Bangladesh either.
