    Where is the Dutch love? I'm gone for a bit and no one discusses our great batting side with Ten Doeschate, Cooper and Kervezee...

    I'd have to admit that bowling is a real pickle - hopefully Seelaar can prove himself in spin conditions.
    hope we get a win over Ireland and a surprise victory over Bangladesh.
    P.S. We beat England at Lord's

    This is such a tight group compared to the other one. I think every team will lose atleast one match. I can see India struggling against SA and WI but I would back them to top the group, with SA coming second. Third and Fourth spots I see being tightly contested between England, WI and Bangladesh, and may even go down to net run rate.

    If it does go down to net run rate then I think Bangladesh will miss out. They have a huge weakness in having no big hitters. I can see them getting in promising situations like 190/200 for 4 or 5 wickets down after 40 overs but then collapsing to 230/240 all out. They have the worst record in powerplays out of the Test playing nations. However having said that they will have home advantage in the group stage and thus I expect they will comfortably beat Netherlands and Ireland, and I would back them to win atleast one game against India, SA, Eng, WI, which may be enough to send them through to the Quarter Finals.

    Regarding the WI, on their day they are very dangerous and capable of dismantling any side, but they have too many off days to win the Cup. I think they are more suited in knockout games and therefore will get stronger if they progress that far.

    I think England will struggle in this World Cup. I don't see them getting past the Quarter Finals, and maybe not even getting that far. They are a better Test side than a ODI side.

    England have been riding on the back of Morgan for the past year or so and now that he's having a lean trot they look terrible. Hopefully he can get his mojo back for the world cup.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    I don't expect much from the English side. As tooextracool said, they've probably depended on one man throughout 2010. Now that the WC is in sub-continent, England will find it very difficult.

    Expecting from surprises from Bangladesh.

    Don't agree, you don't win as many series as England have because of one man, sure he's done very well, but there has been plenty of times he hasn't and this series against Australia has been down to the failure of the batsmen not just Morgan, but even when the 3 times England scored 290+, twice they couldn't defend it and that was down to the inexperienced bowling attack. Strauss and Trott have been key for the batting and Broad and Swann have been great with the ball over this past 18 months, Morgan has been a integral part, but not the only part.

    That pretty much does it for England. I wasn't really expecting them to reach the semis anyway but now I'm seriously thinking they might not even reach the quarters.

    Optimism results in either joyful success, or crushing disappointment.

    Pessimism results in either pleasantly surprising joyful success, or smug self-satisfaction.

    bangladesh has a very good chance of making the next stage.
    just as they beat a disheveled and hapless indian team 4 years ago, they could do the same with a sorry england team.

    they're batting line up is piss poor. luke right?

    as with the west indies. who knows how they'll go. on a given day they can beat the best, but wc is about consistency, so they make screw up early

    south africa
    india
    bangladesh
    west indies.
