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.
