    Sachin will top-score and set the match up for India and it will be dismissed as "cheap minnow runs".

    In sub-continent conditions, Traditionally WI have done well, SA and Eng have struggled. I see Bangladesh putting one across either Eng,WI or SA.

    Eng would be dead tired when they come for the WC after the ashes and the meaningless 5 match or 7 match ODI series in OZ. I see them pulling it hard to qualify for the QF.

    SA, Ind, WI and Eng in that order. England will probably scrape through.

    I see England resting a number of players for the ODI series against Australia.

    India to top the group, Bangladesh 2, SA 3rd, between England and WI for 4th
    This for me. The 'resurgance' of the past year or so will be a false dawn as far as the world cup is concerned. Although i will still maintain my false confidence and say we'll get to the final

    Reckon the bowlers will go OK to be honest Swann & Yardy will be very difficult to get away and our pace bowlers are much cleverer on flat wickets than they used to be. It's the batting that worries me think we need another power hitter in the side only really have KP at the moment.

    Power hitting is massively over-rated in the short forms of the game.
