Guest Author
Call it a fever, frenzy or craze but this once-in-4-year event completely
changes India and it's people. Cricket is not just a game, it's a religion in
India. The 2007
ICC World Cup
was inaugurated over the weekend and matches are scheduled
from Mar 13 to April 28, 2007. West Indies being the host who better than Sir
Garry Sobers
to declare
the world cup open
.

The 16 participating countries (South Africa, Australia, New
Zealand, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, England, West Indies, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe,
Kenya, Scotland, Netherlands, Iceland, Canada, and Bermuda) are divided into 4
groups (Group
A
, Group
B
, Group
C
, and Group
D
). In each group, each country will play with rest of the countries. A Win
is 2 points, a Tie is 1 point and a Loss is 0 point. Two winners from each group
will then move to "Super 8" where again each country will play against
each other from which 4 semi-finalists are decided. And then finalist and
finally the winner.

India won the 1983
World Cup
and were runners up in 2003. The complete
team profile
is a good mix of medium pace
bowlers
, spinners,
strong opening
batsman
, reliable top
& middle
order
and hitting low
orders
. May the best team win and I wish, and hope, India is the best team
this time :) Send your wishes to India here.
