    but Pakistan, australia, south africa, ZIm, NZ and even SL probably had stronger teams in the last 4 wcs than in this this cup. Only India and England might be the exceptions to this. Take this Pak team and compare it to any Pak team after the 1983 WC and see the difference in strength.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Analysing teams's strengths on paper is a pretty meaningless exercise for an ODI knockout tournament. WC '83 is the biggest example of that.

    I don't think Pakistan's ODI team has been weakened all that much. Mohammad Asif doesn't usually have a place in Pakistan's first ODI XI, and I would say Mohammad Hafeez is at least comparable to Salman Butt as an ODI batsman; Mohammad Aamer is a big loss though.

    Nah, Asif, Aamir and Gul would have been the most likely fast bowling combination, as its pretty difficult to imagine Akthar lasting through the tournament.
    Butt too was coming of age as a batsman so their absence has been a big blow, but despite the setbacks Pakistan still seem to be in better shape than what they were in during the last worldcup.

    If India doesn't win what happens? Does the whole thing have to played all over again?

    Looking forward to it soo much regardless... so this is what it was like to be an England fan in the build up to every Ashes between '89 and '05.
    Pssht, you think it's bad now. Wait until you get test status and are treated to it week after week.
