    That's rich coming from someone who start jumping the moment any one makes any kind of statement about WI team and players.

    And no I didn't notice the amusement part like you did.

    LOL. You must be thinking of someone else, mate.

    I MAKE statements about the WI team and players.

    Agreed, no chance all of that will happen. India has as much chance of winning in SA and WC as England has of retaining the Ashes.

    50:1 on both counts.

    Meh, England won the Ashes in 2005.

    India last won an ODI final in the 1970s was it?

    Pakistan and Sri Lanka both fail to go through to the Semi Finals and India need to beat Australia to go through, pretty good prediction from this thread starter.

    Is that really true, based on the crowds at some of the games this competition?

    I quote:

    The players are making their way to the middle. It's a bit misty but otherwise perfect. Again, a tiny crowd but my colleague George Binnoy tells me that the prices are exorbitant, which helps explain it. You'd think the authorities would be more concerned about games taking place against a backdrop of full stands. As it is, the crowd is in the hundreds.

    Hey SS, I'll take those odds too

    Seriously, its a stupidly named thread, but it could come true, but I fancy India to win the final match though, Australia have eyes for one comp, and it ain't this one.

    i still don't see the relevance.. as i am talking about THIS tournament.. i am not saying subcontinent teams are less superior to non-asian teams...

    anyways, would it be embarassing if there is no asians? this is playing in Asia afterall, everyone thought the 3 counrties Pak, India, SL would dominate.... however the pitches have been green [some of them] and the other two Asian countries batting lineups have been completely humiliated under two very good opening bowlers

    still not counting out India though, u never know what they could do at home, however looking at the past results with these two countries you woudln;t think that...

    You would have said the same thing in 1987, After that England didn't see ashes for 18 years.

    Did they play ODIs back then ?
