New Zealand v USA and England v Zimbabwe
These four teams kick off the tournament tonight (or day in England, South Africa, and the Caribbean, and in Asia), with easier teams to get the ball rolling with a win.
The USA make history today becoming the latest team make their ODI debut against the second best team in the world, the USA will be high in spirts after beating Zimbabwe, but have no chance what so ever against the Black Caps. If Fleming wins the toss, and assuming the wicket is flat, my predication is that he will bowl first, just in case they have to do it against Australia at The Oval, which will be flat.
England, despite losing to India the other day, come in on the crest of a wave, having had a perfect summer (7 out of 7) in Tests, and defeating India in the Natwest Challenge, and the stunning form of Andrew Flintoff to boot, they should comfortably beat a bunch of club cricketers.
