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
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
batsman, reliable top
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.
