My Prediction – Final Four of ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

I am sure people will raise fingers and will not be happy about my comments, but this is my inner feeling that some tournament favorites will not be in final four of World Cup 2011.

Expected Final Four

Group A

1- Sri Lanka              – Highly talented side with balanced combination

2- Pakistan               -They are highly committed to display very good cricketing skills

Group B

1- England                -Their recent performance in T20 indicates that they will reach final 4

2- South Africa       – This Worldcup will bring more happiness to South African as they will excel

Why not India? – Too much money – Too much cricket

I am not predicting because I am from a rival nation, but the ground realities are not in favor of India. All Indian players are swimming deep in money through commercials and domestic tournaments, their urge and eagerness to deliver well in the world cup is doubtful. Players played too much cricket recently which is taking its toll when senior players are showing signs of strain and tiredness. Their recent and untimely trip to South Africa will be final blow to their preparedness as they are well behind the strength and class of South Africa. If they are defeated badly in this tour, they will not be able to come back to their form needed to lift their moral.

Furthermore, the Indian crowd is too hostile, biased and one sided. We cannot forget semifinal of World Cup 1996 when the match was partially abandoned due to violent reaction of Indian crowd. This alone will keep their team under pressure and India might be displaying the worst ever world cup effort.

Why not Australia? – Not consistent – Not in good colors

Australia is also not up to the mark. Their recent performances are far from perfect; even then they will be a good team to play with. They might give tough time to some of the teams, but their possibility of reaching final four is very low.

Any why Pakistan .. watch this link.. http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=190003047678861

  1. Dear Sir
    I was your student at New Horizon. I have some different thoughts for INDIA , AUSTRALIA and Pakistan.

    INDIA has the most talented side (younger players performs), most experience (Sachin is back in Indian ODIs) With Zaheer Khan, Harbajan and nehra (satisfied bowling line) May be the WINNER of the World cup. (But from the heart we want that india will not qualify for semis)

    AUSTRALIA always comeback before a big tournament like 1999 world cup. The are truly professional side. Must come in semis.

    PAKISTAN is very tough to win Quatarfinal as Paki dont have batting depth, an avg bowling line without asif and aamir, and lots of issues with team players and management.

  2. You are predicting Pakis in last 4, but the reality is that they are struggling like anything, since past 2-3 years, and never managed to get their right combination. Full of controversies, Internal Team Egos, Lack of Motivation from players and what not….
