    My most hated team is Lanca****e by a long, long way. Their chant of "Ooooooh, a-Lanky, Lanky" etc. used to annoy the hell out of me.

    Disappointed they're not an option in the poll.

    Canada worth a shout, tbh.

    Load of ex-pat and discarded hacks whose passports have no creases in them as yet.

    Get some Canadian-born players in there and I might start supporting ye.

    But that's not going to happen. I don't know if you've read my other posts on this matter or not, but people outside of the immigrant community here in Canada don't have a clue what cricket is and nor do they care. The only way to make Canadians care about cricket is to popularize it in the US first. But that won't ever happen. Having New Zealand and Sri Lanka play some games in Florida to grow the sport there is absurd, how that will popularize the sport in the US is beyond me. It's a laughable strategy. They won't even care if the US were playing the game, why the hell would they care if two countries half-way accross the world were to do so. It makes no sense, am I the only one who saw this as a completely idiotic attempt by the ICC?

    Anyway, back on topic, surely this is not a reason to hate the Canadian team. A lot of these Canadian players are well respect citizens who are amateurs in the game, have 9-5 jobs and a family to support. But they play the sport because they love it, they have a passion for the game. And they are working hard to grow the game in the country, they are making an attempt. This is certainly something that is commendable. A lot of these players are professionals working in the field of banking/finance, health care, technology, etc. But for them to come out and compete, and work hard on something they have a passion for and actually make a strong attempt to grow the game in the country deserves credit. It's not the ICC that will be growing the game across different borders, rather the respected citizens of the countries.

    Would have picked America if they had a team worthy of disliking, however, as it stands...

    Also, to add onto the above post. Having lived in Canada all my life, I was first introduced to the sport by my parents, who moved here from India. I fell in love with the sport, and became an increasingly passionate Indian fan ever since the 2003 WC. I established, managed, captained and coached my own high school cricket team. I grew awareness of the sport in my community. I organized cricket games amongst our school team and the local police officers and firefighters. It caught the attention of many students at my school, even those who were not of Indian, British, Pakistani origin.

    But I am not the only case, there are a lot of other passionate individuals out there who love the sport and are of Indian, British, Pakistani origin (some born here, some not) who are making a strong attempt to grow the sport in this country.

    Toss-up between South Africa & India for me, but so long as Harbhajan is in the team, India will always nose it. Once he's gone though, South Africa will romp it home.

    I would choose England if they didn't have G.Swann in their side who is one of my faves.

    So outside of that, I have to hand the mantle to India... rabid fans + abundance of talent = tall poppies that should be chopped down. Although if we Aussies don't take a broom to our selection committee some time soon I might consider turning on my own.


    RE:
    Sri Lanka, with:
    Vaas, Jayasuria & Murali pretty much gone;
    Jayawardene & Sangakarra turning 34 y.o.;
    Samaraweera & Dilshan turning 35;

    Am I right that they're just about to go through the glut of ATG Sri Lankan retirees that Australia went through with Warne, McGrath, Hayden, Langer, Gilchrist? Is this WC their "last hurrah". Thoughts?
