World Cup 2007 Cricket Predictions

With the Cricket World Cup around the corner I thought I should wear my astrologer hat and try making a prediction or two. I think Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and India will make it to the semi-finals. If one of these teams were to miss out, my guess is that it would be West Indies that makes it to the semis in place of one of these teams.

As for the final I think it will be an Australia-South Africa final and my guess is that South Africa will win!

As for the other teams, Pak is badly weakened by the absence of Shoaib, Razzack and Asif. England, despite their recent win Down Under is not a very balanced side, while Sri Lanka’s bowling is too dependent on Murali. An aging Vaas and bunch of young (often wild) seamers won’t be able to pull it off in my opinion. Lastly the hosts, WI are the most unpredictable. I won’t be surprised if they make it to the semis but I doubt they have what it takes to win the final, Sir Viv Richards views not withstanding.

  3. England and Sri Lanka don’t have the right team balance in my opinion. Vaughan is very injury prone and I won’t be surprised if he doesn’t survive the world cup. Their bowling is weak in my opinion. Barring Flintoff the rest is very suspect. As for SL, I don’t think they have a good team balance either. Besides, their bowlers are very unpredictable. All their young fast bowlers are like Agarkar in his early days! Vaas is aging, emember how Sachin and Dravid swept him like a spinner?Australia is still the favorites, but I think SA have it in them to beat Aus. Smith is an aggressive captain. They have two world class all rounders in Pollock and Kallis,De Villiers and Gibbs are attacking batsmen, followed by Boucher and Jemp and Prince to plays the Dravid role. Their only weakness is the lack of a quality spinner. But I suspect Smith makes up for that with his clever bowling.
