    Not to mention the '92 team were a really good team. They only suffer by comparison.

    Given that India has a lot of passengers in its side, they're no great shakes either

    Fortunately for them, the standard of the teams in this wc is very average and whether Oz is better or worse than the 1992 team is largely irrelevant

    At the end of the day it is a ODI game and there is never anything that can be said with certainty regarding an ODI result. However, whilst India's lower middle order has struggled this tournament, its still far superior to the Australian side that collapsed to 176 against Pakistan.They aren't equipped for the bowlers for these conditions, their planning has been close to nil for this world cup, there is little attempt to innovate by their captain/coaching staff and their batting is over-reliant upon Watson and Clarke. Its a recipe for disaster Im afraid, quite honestly with the exception of NZ I expect every side to be able to put them away 9/10 times.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Not really. We thought four years ago that SRT had played his last WC match. And he was in poorer form and fitness at that time than he is now.

    The class of 1992 was a good side that underperformed.

    But he bowled very well. Better than any of the Australian fast bowlers have bowled all tournament bar Lee vs. Pakistan.

    The name of the player is irrelevant, it's what they bowled. Australia will be pleased if one of their bowlers can bowl like Rampaul did last night.

    Plus I doubt they'll get a pitch with the same level of bounce that Chennai provided in Ahmedebad.

    That was one poster who said that silly comment. Most Australians in particular have downplayed their chances in this World Cup if anything.

    Think both teams are a bit vulnerable to that one good burst with the ball or bat, both a bit collapsy.

    Backing themselves for this one though.

    Truth be told, I wouldn't be too hurt if we lost the semi, provided we had the unadulerated joy of booting India at home.

    Australia really havent done themselves any favors by not giving players like Ferguson or even Hasting's a chance this tournament. They can blame the scheduling and rain all they want, but its been poor planning on their part and they are basically going into the knock out game with no choice but to stick with the XI that ****ed up against Pakistan. Did Watson, Clarke or Haddin really need to play against Canada?

    We should just forfeit the semis once we beat India. After all, we're a bit over winning world cups too

    It is an awful rat tail. Was worse during the South African test series. Was thoroughly disappointed when I first saw it.
