    I doubt Ashwin would fare any better than Chawla to be honest. Besides, the problem with picking him is that there is already an off spinner in the side in Harbhajan (two if you're counting part-timers). It would rob the attack of what little variety it has. He looked okay in the warm up match against New Zealand, though. Bowled reasonably well, I thought.

    As regards the fifth bowler, it is going to be Yuvraj-Pathan. I don't think we have much of a choice, as Tendulkar and Sehwag cannot bowl. Maybe they should give Raina a go instead of Kohli and see how he goes with both bat and ball.

    Yesterday wasn't awful.

    Awful is conceding 84. In 5 overs.

    Don't you dare try and give some credit to those English batters. If India had have bowled anything near good we'd have been rolled out for less than 150!

    I don't think India can win the WC with the attack they fielded last night. Their batting is awesome of course, but last night seriously demonstrated this babeh is wide open.

    Seeing a lot of SL's batsmen have trouble with Akthar's pace was illuminating over the weekend too.

    England I don't think are capable of winning it either.

    Australia can't play spin in the middle order, and guys like White are too rocks and diamonds - they don't work ones well at all.

    SA look well suited, but their temperament remains a huge question mark to me.

    Pakistan are massively inconsistent but may come through and string some games together. If Akthar is fit, he's like a better Tait - provides that X factor and can knock anyone over.

    NZ look horrible atm, and have for quite some time.

    WI are very hit and miss for their part too. They have some blokes capable of posting massive scores on their days, but they had one recognised pace bowler in their last game ffs.

    Seems to me this thing is as wide open as can be. It wil just be amatter of who gets it together from the QF onwards. I mean, it always does of course, but you can't really look at these teams, imho, and say there is a stand out side that's sufficiently well rounded in all respects to say "There goes the overwhelming favourite to win the sucker".

    Makes for an interesting tourney imo.

    Their fielding is worse than other minnows but still better than Pak. Although I must admit that this is hardly a consolation.

    Yes. Please bring in Ashish Nehra so that our draft team can get some points

    Top quality post.
    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

    Pretty much. I think SA could surprise a few people. They are going with 6 batsmen and 5 frontline bowlers (two of who can do a job with the bat). They will rely on Amla, AB and Kallis to get most of their runs but then they aren't the worst blokes to be relying on, going by their current form.

    Indian and English bowling and fielding has been equally terrible in the world Cup so far.

    English fielding has been stunningly bad. Today was merely mediocre rather than bad but compared to two months ago it's shocking. What a few of our batsmen could've done with some fielding like that.

    India didn't bowl well, sure, but **** me England batted well for 40-odd overs. People shouldn't forget that. Strauss was immense.

    Yeah Strauss is a properly good ODI batsman nowadays. Not sure why people were seeing him as a liability, ever since the English summer last year he's been excellent. Only criticism is wasting starts on multiple occasions.

    Agree with this, as it stands at present no side looks favourite as they all have a pretty major flaw, still early days but at the moment you can't really call a winner with any confidence as all sides are having problems apart from pakistan but you can always rely on them to provide their own.

    Nah, the pitches suck. They are absolute roads. Even the best will get hammered. It's time to prepare some rank turners. This is a sub continental tournement FFS.

    In terms of favourites for the WC, I'd say top 5:

    SA > Aus > Pak = Ind = SL.

    South Africa, on paper, should walk this but then they're South Africa tbf.

    It's between SA and Oz IMO.

    India has a laughable bowling line-up and I doubt they'll make the semis tbh.
