You wouldn't find many cricket lovers here dude. Some would even wonder what is it exactly.
But i am a big fan of it. Days are gone when one team used to dominate this game, may it be aussies or windies. This time none could be counted out for becoming the champions.
I would personally bet on INDIA, with special contributions from Saurav Ganguly and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. England would be my second choice. Remember, they haven't one a World Cup yet and would be hungry. Aussies, i believe, may go down under the weight of their ego and hostility (yes, i agree with Sunil Gavaskar, they are hostile to the opponents they are playing against).
Hope it gets exciting this time as well.

You might be surprised how many you find. Being English helps me, of course, and I will be hoping that England can pull their socks up and do well. My son is a great armchair sportsman and will be watching the World Cup at every opportunity, so he will keep me up-to-date with progress (or otherwise).
In Australia its more or less compulsory to play it at some stage of your life. I was a mean swing bowler (and no it has nothing to do with putting your keys in a bowl) in my junior days. As a batsman I was a smash and bash tail ender !
Looks like we just thumped Scotland (never knew they played at all ).
