    NZ losing both of the next 2 looks unlikely to say the least.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    You never know with England one day they play like beggars and like kings on another.


    So counting out England atm would not be right, especially when you take into account that they just lost their last game by 2 runs.


    But once they lose to Australia they would be virtually knocked-out.

    90% of the time like beggars though, so you pretty much do know.

    That's like taking Bangladesh's win over Aus in the 05 England ODI series and saying you never know with them as one day they play like beggars and like kings on another.

    Similar things could be said about Afridi, too. He bats like a "beggar" 95% of the time and then flukes a good innings once a year - at which time you always start a new thread praising him as the second coming.

    Predicting this in order:

    1. Australia- will win out the rest of their games
    2. New Zealand- will lose to Australia and SA
    3. South Africa- will win out the rest of their games
    4. Sri Lanka- will lose to Australia and narrowly to New Zealand

    5. England- will lose to both Australia and SA
    6. WI- will lose to SA and narrowly to England

    Agree with most of your predictions, although I personally think NZ are more likely to lose to SL than SA in these conditions

    Australia
    New Zealand
    South Africa/England
    Sri Lanka

    The England part is blind/ignorant optomism.

    I hope you are right, last series in NZ was tied at 2-2 . So it will be a very tight game.

    The winner will have the advantage of missing Australia in the Semifinal, which must be a great advantage . (and a distinct increase in Prize money -ie Runners-up Money than a quarter -finalist . )
