    Will Smith be under threat if SA don't get very far? I don't know the politics there to comment as much as others do, but he'd be under the pump if they fail badly I'd imagine.

    Edit: Haha Will Smith.

    I imagine West Indies, Pakistan will lose their captain due to retirement (at least in my view), maybe even New Zealand.

    To be honest I think India and Sri Lanka will be the two sides with captains under most scrutiny if neither side reaches the semi finals. I don't know how patient Australia will be with Ponting if Aussie don't win or at least make the semis either.

    Ponting's not going anywhere, imo, regardless of how badly Australia do. Especially with no viable candidate to take over.

    I think Smith might be under pressure if we don't make it to the Super 8's, although from recent experiance I think it'll be more public than official pressure. I don't think he's really in much danger of losing his position, the bigwigs seem to like him.

    I'd be surprised if Vaughan didn't retire from odi's after the WC.

    Inzi and lara would retire after world cup
    Pointing would be the one that is going to hold on to it despite losing.
    i didn't get the last question.

    Given that he went on what was basically a pointless tour to Australia for a few months, has been rushing to get fitness and form, and has taken back the captaincy, I highly doubt he'll retire-- at least of his own will-- after the WC.

    Lara and Inzy will retire. Ponting, Dravid and Fleming are safe. Smith and Jayawardene could face the heat if their sides fail miserably. As for England ...

    Yes (re. Vaughan), but being desperate to play in this one doesn't mean he's remotely considering playing in the next one. Given his fitness and oneday record, I think he'll prefer to conserve his energies for tests after the WC.

    Smith might lose his job as captain if the Proteas don't do well but then who would replace him?

    Stephen Fleming would only go at his own accord IMO, that is if he retires
