    It is great chance for India to win this worldcup as this time it is hosted in the homeground, but also the home grounds for Bangladesh and Srilanka too. But if India reaches the finals then world cup is surely for Inida as the finals is to be held at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai. But there are also rest other teams which have powerful teams such as South africa, Pakistan, Australia and England which can prove themselves at any instant of time. But they have less number or experience less spinners in their squad. Hence with a good Batting order and more efficient spinners India is marching towards the winning of world cup and the line up is combined of Youth and Experienced Players,

    Chak De India!!!!

    Indian Team has a strategy to play out with only two seamers and with three spinners and other part time bowlers such as Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Yusuf Pathan etc, who too can take wickets at slow pitches and can also act as powerful hitters of the balls. Hence the all rounders to have great part in the role of winning each game. But the strong opening batting and one down and two down batsmens have to take the game on their hands and score a lot. These positions are fixed for Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir. On part of the toss it is great to win the toss and elect fielding so as the second batting has more favours with pitch and dew factors. All the Best India.

    Hello Everyone,
    Personally I feel South Africa has lot of winning chances this time. If you are talking about perfect team, super form, the team which has idea on Indian pitches, everything favours South Africa. Let me remind you, SA reached semis 3 times in the past 5 world cups.

    South Africa has played 70 ODI after the 2007 World Cup and won 47 times and lost in 22. In 2010 alone it played 21 ODI's and lost in only 6. This alone proves how much perfect team it is! Recently it won series against Pakistan, West Indies, Zimbabwe and India. This equations alone proves the form of South Africa.

    The batting strength of South Africa contains World best players. Amla super form, All rounder Kallis, World No.1 batsman AB, Captain smith, Duminey. The team contains world class bowlers like Dale steyn, Morkel and a player like Botha has a experience in bowling in sub-continent pitches. The slight edge South Africa has is their fielding. They can easily stop 40-50 runs on board. If South Africa overcome its biggest fear "BAD LUCK", then the first world cup chance is at their feet.

    In my view India Will sure win this World cup 2011, and I am not telling it just for my country but there are some strong causes which are showing that India is favorable that other 13 countries. The causes are:-

    Why India will win World cup 2011

    Generally the strength of a team are its players and in my view Indian Cricket players are best among all other countries players. I am discussing the strength of Indian Players.

    Batting Section of Indian Cricket Team

    Batting line up of Indian Cricket team is very strong. Because many great bats man like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virendra Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Goutam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina and Yusuf Pathan are there. These bats man are highly experienced and very good in technical batting. Lets know what are the merits of Indian bats man.

    Mahindra Singh Dhoni

    Mahindra Singh Dhoni is Captain of Indian Cricket team for 2011 world cup and he is wicket keeper also. In whole world he is known as Mr Cool in captain ship. He takes decision in cool mind which is essential for a good team and although he is wicket keeping, he can give advice to bowlers for how to bowl and can know the difficulties of batsman.

    Virendra Sehwag

    Virendra Sehwag is the main bats man of Indian Cricket team. If his bats starts charging then great bowlers afraid to bowl. In 19.02.2011 match which was played between India and Bangladesh, all have seen what Sehwag is. He scored 175 runs from Just 143 balls and in this innings he got 14 fours and 5 sixes. He became also First player in World cup 2011 to score 100.

    Sachin Tendulkar

    I think there no further discussion is needed to show how Sachin has played. He is the legend of Cricket and he is the only bats man who scored 200 runs in one ODI match. He is playing cricket for 20 years and know well which bowler can make difficulty for the team and through he is very senior bats man he can advise the team to how to play in adverse situation.

    Goutam Gambhir

    All knows the strength of Goutam Gambhir. He got ICC player of the year award for 2010 and bided in highest amount in IPL. This shows the power and capacity of Goutam Gambhir. When Gambhir and Sehwag come to Opening then all other teams think before bowling.

    Virat Kohli

    Virat Kohli is the young player in Indian Cricket team but he has lot of experience in cricket cause he was captain of Indian under 19 cricket team. And India got the under 19 world cup in his captain ship. He is the second player to score 100 in ICC world cup 2011. In opening match with Bangladesh, he played so good that cannot be explained.

    Yuvraj Singh

    Yuvraj Singh is the player who can beat Six sixes in a over. So It is worthless to say about his strength. Although he is not in a good form now but all hope that he will get back in form in this world cup.

    Suresh Raina

    Suresh Raina is the young player in Indian cricket team and can play very well in Pressure. He comes for batting at 5th or 6th place and charges all bowlers. He is a great fielder also. Due to him India has won many matches and we can hope that he will play very good in world cup 2011.

    Yusuf Pathan

    Yosuf Pathan is the trump card of Indian Cricket team. He can beat all type of bowlers, whether they are spin or sim bowlers. He comes at 6th position and he knows what to do in that position so he charges all and for this he is known as hitter of Indian cricket team. In addition to batting he also bowls very well. He is a part time spinner and can take wicket at right time.

    Bowling Section of Indian Cricket Team

    Bowling section of Indian Cricket team is also strong as batting. Many great bowlers are there and they can also make good runs while needed. Such type of players are Zahir khan and Harbhajan Singh. Lets discuss about the strength of Indian bowlers. Ashish Nehera, Munaf Patel, R. Aswin, Prabin Kumar, Piyush Chawala are also very good bowlers and can give their best in the world cup.

    However South African line up has strong batting order, such as Graeme smith, Hasim Amla, JP Duminy, AB De Villiers etc, they all can tackle only the seamers of Indian Bowling attack. But they have an experience in playing in Indian Pitches , they have only little experience to play agianst the spin bowlers.And the record of winning more matches is less than the winning record of both India and Australia is much better than it. South african bowling too doesn't works well in Indian pitches. But any team shouldnot think less of SouthAfrica

    Hi All,

    Obviously India has the best chance to win this world cup. This might be the first time we could not accomodate a player of this caliber, stylish dependeble left hand batsmen and all rounder Suresh Raina who save lots of runs through his fielding skills. This shows our Indian team's bench strength. And only our team is having three specialist spinners in the squad and players like Yuvraj Singh who is nowadays helping india with his bowling than his batting. So we have great depth in batting as well as bowling. The Only concern for us may be our fast bowling department though we have Pacer Sreesanth, experienced and skilled bowler Zaheer Khan and Munaf patel who keeps his line and length perfect and Ashish nehra who is really dangerous in depth overs, this pace department didnt do well in practice matches. But these pacemen has won lots of matches for us and we belive they will do it this time also. So India got the best bunch of young and experienced guns who will take India home.

    Apart from India, South africa have best side standing along with Sri Lanka who has equal chance.

    This worldcup is a different edition from other world cup editions because after the league matches of group stages the other editions have Round Robbin such as Super sixes or Super Eight matches which to resemble the league matches and the best performers will be selected for the semifinals. But this time there is no there is no such matches but the top qualifiers of each group would move to Quarter finals. So there they have to be really serious to qualify for semifinals as it is a Knock out round. There this is a tuff world cup edition for all and all teams should not giveup to taste the sweet of success

    Hi Siyaram,

    Not every time India plays with the same strategy as you said, to play with only two seamers and three spinners. Instead it decides with respect to the wicket its going to play.

    For example, India opted for three seamers and one specialist spinner against bangladesh. India might not play the same combination against England this sunday. And as you said the positions or batting slots are not fixed for any batsmen. Captain Dhoni shuffles the batting order around him in crucial situations which had come good for the team.

    With respect to "Toss", Yes it is important to win a toss. But not always we should choose fielding. Because this also depends on the pitch and the dew factor as you said. Finally, Looking at team India it looks the strongest side in batting and in spin bowling department. we all belong to same relegion "Cricket" and we support our team India to Hail the Honour.

    Though I wish India to win the Cup, I feel Sr Lanka has great chances of winning this World Cup. Sri Lankan Side is the well balanced side. Murali in his final appearance, Devastating Dilshan, Jayawardena and Sangakkara

    India could opt for Three seamers only against some easy teams and some speedy tracks. But against some great teams India could account for the maximum probability with spinners and part time bowlers.

    Dear Friends,

    No doubt. India Will win the ICC worldcup 2011. The India has both the bating and bowling strength as good as higher level.All the playesr of the team, from top to bottom are contributing good effort in all levels.

    The players like Gambeer and Sewaug are in good form in batting. They are doing their job very well. The bating performance also have been improved whem compared to previous matches.

    MILLIONS OF Indian Cricket fans are praying for the team India to hold World Cup Cricket trophy after a long span of 28 years. India won last world cup tournament in 1983 under the captaincy of Kapil Dev. India had reached the final of 2003 World Cup in South Africa.

    The young Indian team is playing good cricket since last few years under the captaincy of MS Dhoni and coach Gary Kirsten. Sachin Tendulkar, who is the only cricketer who has scored double hundred in ODIs, is playing his record sixth World Cup tournament.

    Out of fifteen members Indian squad for the ICC World Cup Cricket 2011, eight are playing their first World Cup. Ten members of Indian team are still under 30 and five are even not of 25 years.

    So, we will win this ICC World Cup 2011. We make faith and believe of our Indian Cricket Team. We all should pray for the historical winning of the success for the forth coming matches.

    with regards,

    This time Indian team has more chances to win the World cup this year. You know the strength of Indian team, here it is;
    1)Most expreinced opening batsmans: Master Blaster Sachin & Matured Sehwag.
    2)Young & aggressive batsmans: Yusuf,Dhoni,Gautam,Suresh,Yuvi,Virat
    3)Yusuf is the all rounder to keep Indian team move forward in a difficult time. Infact Harbhajan too improved his batting skill and will come in to the rescue for Indian team.
    4)Bolwers: Zaheer,Harbhajan,Yusuf,Asish & Munaf have the bowling power to dismantle the opposite team.
    5)Indian team has good batting,bowling & fielding skill but need some stability to make it 100%
    6)Young & matured Captain Dhoni will lead the Indian to grab the Cup.

    We hope, this time Dhoni will not be a hapless fellow, will bring the Cup to cheer the Indians.

    India has got highest NRR in B group of World cup of 2011. Soit is the best team from Group B and Pakistan is in top of Group A. So I think the final match will be held between India and Pakistan. And I am sure India will win this tournament.
    100 Crore People blessings is on the head of Indian Cricket team so it will never loose the World cup.
    In the first match with Bangladesh, Indian bats man proved them as the hero of cricket field. Virendra Sehwag scored first century in world cup 2011 and Virat got the second. In the second match with England, Indian players played good but not satisfactory but still Sachin got his 47 the ODI hundred and unfortunately the match ended with tie.
    So now India will try to win all matches and I hope they will successful in this World cup and after 28 years our world cup will come to its home.

    There will be no doubt in Indian team winning the world cup but there are chances for Indian players to go wrong at sometimes as it was in the match against england where they haven't appealed for two main wickets and Indian bowlers failed at last overs where they bowled straight to the wicket. Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni though being a cool captain but should make a fielding strategy such that even rotating singles become difficult which they failed to do in England match. And the UDRS - Umpire Decision Review System is also not as appreciable as it failed to give the correct decision of wickets in the same match. But however a tie in the match gave some relief but not joy. India should also make note of some small teams such as Ireland which would even do mighty things as in the case against England in which they chased out 329 runs in fifty overs.

    India is in the top of group A and Pakistan is in top of Group B. So there is no chance of a match against them in the Quarter finals. The quarter finals will be held between the top of on group against the lower rankers of another groups and it will be a knock out round . So there are less chances for a match between India and Pakistan in this Worl Cup tournament.

    Hello Members,
    I still feel that South Africa has better chances to win this world cup. The bowling attack of India is very poor and it is clearly reflected in England match. In coming matches we can expect that "Dhoni win the toss, select bat, make a total of 400 runs on board and expect a tension finish".

    @Siyaram: First of all Dhoni should know the rules of UDRS system. The rule book clearly says that if the batsmen is more that 2.4 meters far from wickets there may be a chances of deflection of ball which may appear wrong in Hawk-eye technology. What 3 rd empire did on Ind vs Eng match is perfectly alright.

    My view is, India wil be won the worldcup.Because, now india is good in battingside. we have 8 batsman in our team. All the players are performing well.

    But india very worest in bowling area.
    we have not enough bowler in our team. In other team perform well in individual prerformence. In AUS, SA team players are contributing individually. everyone person should play well in those team.
    take indian won history, this was not well in wnole team performence. we note every indian victory only one batsman and one bowler are fact of more then 60% contributing for winning.

    eventhough i beleive india will won the worldcup 2011.

    all is well.

    Hello Mr Kranthi,
    I am partial agree with your topic but not fully. In the match which was played between England and South Africa, we got that the strength of South Africa. It lost the match which was favorable to SA and England bowlers success ed to keep SA bats mans in Control.
    And in UDRS system, ICC changed the rule according to the view of Dhoni. You may be seen the UDRS decision which was taken at the time of match played between Ireland and India. This system went in favors of India but it was in the same condition as England Match.
    So in Present point table of B group Indian is in top position cause it has won 2 matches out of 3 and got 5 points totally.
    India will rock in world cup 2011 next matches.

    The chance for a match between South Africa and India in the higher stages is very low as South Africa is still at the low part of the group and if too India wins the next league match against South Africa, South Africa would lost its position to qualify for Quarter finals as yesterday Bangladesh defeated England and gained a momentum to back some one down in the table. So if South Africa wins the match against India then only it can make sure its place in quarter finals. But losing the match is not a drawback as it has already qualified for the next stages. But losing the match will decrease the confidence of the players.

    And in UDRS system, the rule for Leg Before Wicket has been changed that the ball should pitch in line within 3.5mts and should hit the stumps. Then only the wicket will be awarded. This is a result for the appeal of India in this issue.

    Hello Members,
    I think we got an answer here. South Africa deserved to win. Can someone give me a single team who came back after battering Tendulkar and Sehwag? This team is magnificent, they pulled back India back from 267 for 1 and dismissing them for 296. I have not seen a greater comeback in one-day cricket. If you clearly observe, they did not loose their coolness till the end and easily took advantage of India's weaknesses and capitalized it. Just compare South Africa Powerplay to India's ! That's where the script is made or lost.

    On other hand India did not deserve to win this game, the favourites tag does not fit this Indian side. Anyways, we will be thrashed out sooner or later by a team in the quarters or at max we may reach semis, that is if the quarter final team is weak otherwise the way we are playing, we deserve to be knocked out in this round itself. We still are in top position just because we played with minnows like Holland and Ireland, against england its a tie and with South Africa we lost.

    I am not against India, I just hope that we do find bowlers who know how to bowl at the death, we seriously need talent guys and we have none. We can never win the world cup based on bowlers like Munaf, Nehra, Piyush chawla.

    Over the years It's still the same story, It goes like this "Tendulkar scores a ton, middle order collapses, then bowlers give it away". What's the moral of this story?? Tendulkar is not a match-winner. I don't when the mindsets of Indian people will change!

    Hello members,

    My opinion on WC 2011!!

    India will not have fair chance to win the world cup because of the weaker bowling and fielding department. India may win the world cup, if we can score >340 runs in every match, which put opposition under pressure and to make mistakes.

    The Australia team have very good chance to win the world cup because of their all round performances in each department..


  • #3249
    India has not got the much chances to win the world cup as it is at the bottom of the Group B which would have the quarterfinals match against Australia which is at the top of group B. And so far Dhoni hasn't made use of Suresh Raina and R Ashwin who would have proved themselves if they had got chances rather than giving more chances to Piyush chawla who doesn't corrects his mistake. And if they play in some other matches and they fail to do well it is not their mistake as Dhoni hasnot given enough chances to practice for them as Practice Makes A Man Perfect. And Besides giving Nehra more chances Dhoni could call in Sreesanth to bowl as India always lost the match in the tournament with a nearest margin. Hence Dhoni could think of New strategy for the upcoming match against West Indies.

    India was two good in the last match with South Africa. In cricket these things happen that some bats man click and make good score and others not. But til the last over match was in the hand of India. Due to the bad luck or low strength of Asish Nehera, India lost that match But I am sure Indian Heros will get back in form and win all the rest matches.

    Dear Friends,

    Now the recent results of the two semi finals held between Pakistan and India and between Sri Lanka and New Zealand gives some clear picture to us about the Winning status of the team in the World cup 2011. The chances for India is more bright now. The Sri Lanka is also a good team and having full strength also.

    so, the chances are 50 and 50. But India has bright chance because the final match is being held in the Mumbai which is home country to India.

    Now India is good and strong in Bowling and bating is also not bad. It is favor to India to win the World cup 2011. We wish the Indian team to win the Cricket world cup 2011.
