If your team don’t win it, who would you like to?

If my team NZ don't win it I would like to see another team win it that hasn't won it before so that would be the Netherlands, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and South Africa.

None of them have much chance of winning it though apart from South Africa but I would struggle to barrack for them to win it before NZ did.

We deserve to win it before those World Cup chokers do, we have made two World Cup finals, robbed in one, and they haven't even made one yet.

It's ok, most likely NZ will fall at a late or final hurdle and you can be joyful satisfied that all is right in the world.

Is there a possibility for no one to win? Who wins if the final is rained out, including the spare day? And then what about the semis? And then what about if a plague of crickets disrupts the rest of the tournament?

I would prefer either of those scenarios if it prevents Australia from winning it again.

Don't really care if my own team wins tbh, we got 2019 and it's not going to get any better than that.

I've got a soft spot for Pakistan, but really, any team that isn't Australia or India.

I'm not going to defend that - I didn't like it then and don't like it now. But I don't really see how a handful of players being dickheads 12 years ago is relevant to our current team.

The willingness to select Scott Kuggeleijn is a bigger black mark against us, IMO.

Seeing that my team embarrassingly didn't qualify, I don't much care who wins. Would love to see a NZ or RSA win their first WC though.

if England / Pak don't win, i'd actually like to see SA get through. It's not fun any more seeing them as the chokers of the WC

Great confidence on England, almost over confidence. You are a fitting fan for England, over confident just like your team. This over confidence will lead to their downfall just watch. Playing reckless/T20 type cricket will back fire against top teams.
I called it and England obliged as expected!

Obviously an entirely hypothetical question given England will win, but for me if they didn’t I think I’d root for Pakistan

I love Shaheen, and they’re just something endearing about Pakistan on song isn’t there? I loved their 09 T20 win over here.

Obviously the counter to this is I don’t wish to see @trundler have any joy, but.
Congratulations for the victory like you knew would happen!

Not being funny but I’m not sure there’s a WC sub forum since I joined that doesn’t have me predicting an England win
