    Well we're still 2 years away from the World Cup. In the next 2 years im sure we'll see quite a few players retire & several teams lose or gain form.

    Obviously i'd like NZ to maintain their form for the next 2 years, it won't be easy. But if they can then i'd think they have a decent chance of winning.

    I'd love to see a team other than australia win the world cup for a change. I'm pinning my hopes on england and Sri lanka

    The top teams in 2007 I feel would be England, WI (home benefit), Pak, Nz, Aus

    Just have the feeling England might win it

    Way too early to predict, but the safe bet would be Australia.

    That'd rock. I think the West Indies winning with Lara bowing out following it would be amazing. Particularly if he scored a ton in the final to carry WI to victory.

    At this point in time would have to be Australia noone has got near them in this VB series so much that the cricket has got almost boring to watch, i really hope other tems challenge Australia for the world cup in 07 but even if some Australia players they've still got quality players to replace them.

    Will Cairns still be around?

    Of course if Bond comes back and has 18 months or so cricket behind him that would make a huge difference.

    Australia to win would be my prediction, with England runners up (again) much to the anger and disappointment of all the English on CW.

    Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe don't even get close to advancing into the super six.

    Prediction of Super Six Makeup

    Australia
    India
    England
    New Zealand
    South Africa
    West Indies

    In the semi finals Australia plays India and England play New Zealand.

    England Advance and so do Australia.

    Australia beat England to win the 2007 World Cup and become the first team in history to win 3 World Cup's in succession.

    That's just my prediction.

    Yes it was very boring watching Australia play their 2 home onedayers against NZ in December.....

    To remind you in was 1-1, and Aust were only saved by Umpire Fatty Parkers shocker in the 2nd game.

    I'd hardly say that 2 match series was "boring" - both games going down to the last couple of overs....

    Whilst the Aussie are streaks ahead of the rest of the world in Test cricket. I don't think NZ are that far behind them in ODI's..
