    Strongest Squad on paper?

    Considering the Sub-Continent conditions who according to U looks the strongest squad with right mix of experience, batting depth, pace, spin etc etc.

    Note: Sorry to leave the associates in order to maintain seriousness in the thread but u can mention them too if u think so.

    It has to be India. England looks a pretty balanced team but they lack match winners.

    Considering the World Cup is in the subcontinent, the strongest squad on paper in these conditions is without a doubt India. Contrary to popular belief, I am providing a completely unbiased opinion here tbh.

    I honestly feel that England are being rated a bit too highly by some members. Let's not forget that this World Cup will be in India, England will not thrive in those conditions. Mark my words, they will fail miserably.

    Now if the World Cup was held anywhere else, England would certainly do better and I would expect them to be one of the top teams.

    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

    Definitely India, IMO.

    I thought we had a decent side for the ODIs late last year, but we were whitewashed by ****ing India A.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Since its in the Subcontinent, hard to go past India. SA would get my vote if it was somewhere else though.

    For my guess, neither SA nor India will win it.
