    Icon14 Six reasons as 2 why India will win the cup!!

    Hi guys,
    I'm confident that this time around India will not only reach the final of the cup just like last time around but will also win it, i have several reasons for it.

    1, They have the best batting lineup in the world.Guys like Sehwag can be made 2 sit out coz India has blasters liek Uthappa.In contrast Australia seems 2 struggle in the absence of Symonds!What greg seems 2 have done for India, is that by experimenting all these years he seems 2 have found out a replacement player for every position!!

    2 They have 2 world class wicketkeeper batsmen in Dhoni and Karthik, most team struugles 2 find one, but India is blessed with 2!! Both of whome are good enough 2 play as just a batsmen!!!

    3 They have the best and most varied bowling combination of pace and spin.From the deadly rt hand bowling of Munaf and Sree 2 the awesome left arm swing bowling of Zaheer Khan, the king spin duo of Kumble and Harbhajan.Australia has awesome pace bowling too, but don't have good spinners.SA doesn't have a spinner atall, though has good pacers.

    4 The best lower order big hitters in Pathan & Dhoni.

    5 Vital experiance of playing world cup by class players like Dada, Tendulkar, Yuvraj, Harbhajan,Dravid, Zaheer and Kumble etc.

    6 They have the service of the best brain in the history of game in Greg Chappel, Chappel's input will help the team to emerge out as WC champs.


    My 15 member World Champion 2007 Squad would be

    Uthappa
    Ganguly
    Dravid
    Tendulkar
    Yuvraj
    Karthk
    Dhoni
    Munaf
    Khan
    Kumble
    Harbhajan

    Ajit
    Pathan
    Sehwag
    Sreesanth

    The whole post lost any semblance of sense after that ( if it had any before).
    Greg Chappell is an absolute JOKE of a coach...the Indians should do themselves a favour and hire someone who actually knows about coaching after they get bundled out of the world cup.

    Oh and have the guts to sack overrated Tendulkar as well !!!!

    The thread title is hilarious.

    He actually typed out the number "six" with letters where it would have been perfectly acceptable (although not preferable to me) to put a number there, but then used "2" to replace the word "to." Where's the consistency? That's all I ask of someone's forum typing - oh and that they don't use rogue apostrophes.

    1. he is one of the greatest batsmen ever in one day history, no way is he overrated
    2. really bad timing with the sacking suggestion, just when he has come out of a prolonged slump and batted himself into reasonably good form....

    4 The best lower order big hitters in Pathan & Dhoni.
    Since when has Karthik been a 'world class' wicket keeper? Even Dhoni can't be classed as one yet.

    And Pathan has to do a lot of hitting to make up for the fact he can't bowl, and Mike Hussey may have something to say about that mantle being given to Pathan/Dhoni.

    Fairly certain this thread is one big joke.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Hussey's not even the best lower-order hitter in his own team.

    Along the lines of this

    (None of what he says is untrue, but the central conclusion certainly is)

    Hi guys,
    I'm confident that this time around India will not only reach the final of the cup just like last time around but will also win it, i have several reasons for it.

    1, They have the best batting lineup in the world.Guys like Sehwag can be made 2 sit out coz India has blasters liek Uthappa.In contrast Australia seems 2 struggle in the absence of Symonds!What greg seems 2 have done for India, is that by experimenting all these years he seems 2 have found out a replacement player for every position!!
    Maybe they have the best batting line-up on paper, but really it's not that good. Tendulkar, Dravid and Yuvraj are all class acts but guys like Sehwag, Uthappa, Karthik are definately not.

    2 They have 2 world class wicketkeeper batsmen in Dhoni and Karthik, most team struugles 2 find one, but India is blessed with 2!! Both of whome are good enough 2 play as just a batsmen!!!
    \\

    Neither is a "world class" wicket keeper batsmen although Dhoni is getting close. The idea of playing Karthik as a pure batsmen is ridiculous in my eyes.

    3 They have the best and most varied bowling combination of pace and spin.From the deadly rt hand bowling of Munaf and Sree 2 the awesome left arm swing bowling of Zaheer Khan, the king spin duo of Kumble and Harbhajan.Australia has awesome pace bowling too, but don't have good spinners.SA doesn't have a spinner atall, though has good pacers.
    Australia have Brad Hogg and South Africa don't really need a spinner.

    4 The best lower order big hitters in Pathan & Dhoni.
    Oram and McCullum? Hussey? Afridi and Razzaq?

    5 Vital experiance of playing world cup by class players like Dada, Tendulkar, Yuvraj, Harbhajan,Dravid, Zaheer and Kumble etc.
    That's a very fair point, India do have a nice mix of experience and youth.

    6 They have the service of the best brain in the history of game in Greg Chappel, Chappel's input will help the team to emerge out as WC champs.
