    Remember Pak have never beaten India in a world cup match having played them 4 times.
    I agree Miagra is underrating Sri Lanka. There is no chance of them getting knocked out before the semis (after that it is impossible to predict). Also, history counts for little in India-Pakistan matches. I'd give India the edge simply because of the home advantage, but there's not a lot in it.

    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

    You think there's no chance of Sri Lanka losing the quarter final? Really?

    Well I suppose there's always a small chance, but I can't see any of South Africa, England, West Indies beating Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka.

    ERRR, OK. after watching lanka last night, i change my stance on them. Thought they might be overrawed by india and safrica, but this is a brilliant team. such unity and pride in the way they play.

    They will demolish any of the topteamsif they're not on top of their game.

    will be safrica, lanka , india and gapfiller in sf.

    If india go crazy with the bat, and bat to their ABSOLUTE POTENTIAL, then they can beat lanka. Otherwise, this solid team will beatthem.

    if lanka make the final v safrica, which i thinkthey will, it will be interesting. South africa are the strongest team of the tournament, but if they choke or play poorly on slow wickets, lanka will be the victors.

    Just love the efficiency they play with

    Don't think we've seen enough of SA lately in ODI's (particularly on the subcontinent), to say they're the strongest team on paper. Would fancy Australia over them TBH, because they've played lots of cricket in India in recent times and done well in ODIs. SA are one of the contenders of course, but don't particularly stand out from the rest.

    And they lost to India 1-2 in an ODI series last year (won a dead rubber).

    Surely a chance that they might lose the quaters. They aren't that good to be assured victory.

    If that was a Mark Williams/Port Adelaide reference from Spikey, SS has clearly missed it yet commented anyway.
