Australia will win the Cricket world cup and rest is hype

Its not just me a fanboy saying it experts like tony Greg have already called it for Australia go listen to it here.ponting_wordcupHere are my reasonsFirst one, they were number 1 for the last four and 11 months. All their loss of form in the last few months did is give some excitement to the world cup rather than it being an all Aussie affair.Second one, recently they released the best Australian one day team ever to play for australia. It was not just some random stuff they sent in polls to all the players ever to play the one day game for australia and out of it 80% of the players polled in for these results. And the team wasAustralia's greatest ODI XI Adam Gilchrist (wk), Mark Waugh, Ricky Ponting, Dean Jones, Steve Waugh (capt), Michael Bevan, Andrew Symonds, Shane Warne, Brett Lee, Dennis Lillee, Glenn McGrath, Greg Chappell (12th man). Bold player for current team.Out of which five players are currently in the side, how many other countries are good enough to say that. Out of this five, two players are hurt but the player replacing them are even better or as good as them. For Bevan we are getting Hussey who is the best one day player according to the ICC one day rankings.Third one, its a good thing that they lost these matches now. At least now they know they have a weakness and will work on it. Imagine if they would have lost all those six matches in the world they would have been out of the tournament. They need some thing to get them going and this is as bigger a reason as anything. So watch out for the wounded ego's. They will come back strong.Fourth one, Last night i saw a well known astrologer Bejan Daruwallah predict on tv that Australia will be no.1 and india will come 2 or 3rd.Some more cricket world cup predictionsBest player - PontingBest Bowlers - Nathan BrackenHighest Total - Above 400 ( Small ground and non test playing nations )Other teams who will impress - New Zealand, South Africa these two could also be the loser in the final.Here is a poll from the www.baggygreen.comworldcup_poll
