    it is very difficult to pick just one from the options that you have given here.

    Peaking at the right time will be important in this tournament since there is no dominante team, unlike 2003 and 2007.

    Scoring more runs than your opponents IMO.

    I know, yet I resisted the temptation to allow multiple votes since I like asking difficult qs.

    It's the discussion, more than the votes

    AWTA.

    Seriously speaking though, kudos to the OP for creating a tough poll with a lot of viable options. I would say momentum and confidence will probably make the difference in this World Cup, and SA and Pakistan are well placed in that department.

    Skill and luck, mainly. The more cricket I watch the more convinced I become that momentum between matches is almost completely an illusion.

    Although I would bracket peaking at the right time under luck, tbh. Or maybe as a combination of skill and luck.

    Momentum between matches is more or less a myth in my book. Of these options, I'd say the preparation and strategy is an underrated asset to have.

    Of course, all of these thing pale in comparison to skill. You can't win without having players that are among the best.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    No magic attributes. Do well on the day (which is made easier by quality of players). That's it.

    captaincy will make a big difference. Dhoni's Midas touch if lost on the day will cost India the game. Ponting has been quite **** as captain for the last year or so
