    This Cricket World Cup sees the highest number of Asian teams in it (6) and there are 4 ranked teams, UAE and Afghanistan are unranked.

    The pitch conditions of Australia and New Zealand are going to suit batsmen and pacers more than spinners and the top Asian teams rely heavily on spin.

    What are your predictions for each of the teams and who do you think will win the World Cup?

    Mine are:
    India:
    Quarter-finals
    Sri
    Lanka- Semi-finals
    Pakistan - Quarter-finals
    Bangladesh - Quarter-finals; if lucky otherwise 5th in group.
    UAE and Afghanistan will finish bottom of their groups without winning any games.
    I expect either Australia to lift the trophy at home or England to win it.

    I think

    Bangladesh: Group Stage
    Pakistan & Sri Lanka: Semi Final
    India: Quarter Final

    Final: Australia vs South Africa if there is a possibility

    There is a chance that New Zealand may also qualify for the Semi Final but it's going to be very difficult for England unless special performances are given by Moeen Ali, Morgan, Ravi Bopara and Jos Buttler

    Pool A / Quarter Finalists:

    Australia
    England
    Sri Lanka
    New Zealand

    Pool B / Quarter Finalists:

    South Africa
    India
    Pakistan
    West Indies

    Semi Finals:

    Australia vs Pakistan / India/ South Africa / West Indies - Australia wins
    Sri Lanka vs Most teams from Pool B are likely to lose

    and the other two teams from Pool B who did not play against Australia & Sri Lanka will reach Semi Finals

    There is a strong possibility of Australia vs South Africa Final and South Africa CAN beat Australia

    PS: All top 8 nations can win the World Cup since none of them are in their best of form/consistency

    Australia-New Zealand will top group A
    South Africa will top our group
    Pakistan must beat India to avoid a clash with New Zealand in the quarters
    We can handle Sri Lanka and England

    On all the previous occasions they were the favorites to down India...they just couldn't handle the pressure
    but this time we have no expectations hence no pressure on them

    We have an upcoming odi triseries with Australia and England in Australia which will give us a clearer picture for predicting our teams performance in WC.

    No is perhaps too strong a word
    but yeah very little expectations
    the bowling has no punch apart from Irfan
    the reason we had a good run in the 2011 world cup was because we had three world class spinners on spin friendly tracks ...and perhaps the biggest worry is our lack of match practice on those tracks
    By the time World Cup starts the Indian batsmen would be well drilled on how to play on those pacy tracks...can't say the same for the Pakistani players
    but pressure would be more on the favorites and this time India is the favorite against Pakistan

    what kind of stupid grouping is this, they actually gave a freehand to Aussies to get to finals.
    Finalist from Pool A: Austeralia
    second finalists will be from Pool B and thats all I can guess :)

    Pakistan is going to lack severely in bowling this time round. Hence my predictions aren't too sweet.
