    Pakistan comfortably. And in most conditions too. I thoroughly expect to be embarrassed by this comment in a couple of weeks. Or even by Tuesday end.
    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."

    I hope and expect so too

    Pakistan, but India could potentially be worse if their bowling attack loses it like they've done frequently in ODI finals. If/when New Zealand lose Bond it would possibly be them.

    England could go really badly wrong if Flintoff breaks down. We are ****ed in other words.

    ^ Same can be said of every team bar South Africa.

    Tbh, Australia can't be boasting either. Without Lee and with McGrath off-colour it's not a hugely potent attack. Take Bracken out and it's a very weak attack.

    None of the teams have a particularly strong bowling attack for West Indies conditions, but South Africa appears to pose the most strength bowler for bowler.

    IMO Pakistan have no potency any more. Of all the attacks in the world cup, theres is, on paper, the weakest. However, Sami has proved himself to be a good bowler in the past and could come good again.

    No. No he hasn't. He was never a good bowler. If he plays New Zealand all the time he'd probably be alright though.

    Do you really need justification?

    Ok. Pakistan has a poor bowling attack because, surprise surprise, it's comprised of poor bowlers. Iftikhar Anjum and Danish Kaneria are very poor ODI bowlers. Mohammad Sami and Azhar Mahmood are extremely mediocre ODI bowlers. Yasir Arafat has done nothing for Pakistan to suggest that he's any more worthwhile. Rana Naved is perhaps the most over-rated bowler in ODI cricket, and another mediocre bowler.

    Umar Gul is an okay bowler. He and Shahid Afridi are the best bowlers in Pakistan attack at the moment.

    well actually i was gonna thread about the most under rated bowling side in the world cup but for that i had to prove if pakistan is actually under rated, so far this poll has served my purpose but i will wait for it to become a decent sample before i answer your questions

    Having Afridi as one of the best bowlers in an attack is plain proof that the attack is dire, without Asif and Akhtar.
