Indian Cricket at its Peak

Who will win the 2011 Cricket world cup? This has become an extremely hot topic among millions of Cricket lovers around the world. I feel like it is INDIA. There are several reasons to support that feeling.

First of all I think after a long time they have found a fantastic captain in Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He is a cool character who can perfectly handle pressure situations. He was known as a hard hitting batsman with very little patience. But how well he has adapted to the captain’s role. I’ve seen him playing in extremely pressure situations with loads of responsibility as a captain and winning close games for India.

Second reason is the current form of the Indian team. They beat Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka 4-1 recently. It’s a very well known fact that beating Sri Lanka in our own soil is not too easy. Currently Indians are playing with New Zealand and today’s game was a rain of boundaries and sixes for Indians. Little master Sachin is back in prime form, has scored 163. What a batting line up they have got these days. Sehwag, Sachin, Yuvraj, Dhoni etc. all are in brilliant form. I think they have won 12 out of last 13 ODIs. It seems like this form will continue for a long time.

Next reason is that the 2011 world cup will be held in Asia. As playing in Pakistan is uncertain due to terror attacks, most of the matches will be played in India. It’s a huge bonus for the Indians to play on their own soil in front of their own crowd.

Finally the Aussies who dominated ODI cricket for about 10 years, are showing a lack of consistency these days. Specially with the huge loss on their own soil against South Africa.

I think All these facts shows an Indian win. But I know that cricket is a very unpredictable game. In fact my best wish goes to our Sri Lankan team. But if we can’t win it, I wish all the very best to India and they thoroughly deserve it!.. Chuk de India.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah..

    Indians got a ‘batting power house’.. its really hard to demolish such batting lineup even with world’s best bowling attack.

    Also I guess SA also got a good chance of winning the next world cup.. But u never know.. Aussies might come back strongly.. because we have nearly 2 years left .. and that’s a long time period..
    Btw .. I really felt sorry about Sri Lanka.. they need to find some good batsman who can hit the ball out of the park… they can’t rely on Sangakkara and Mahela..

    Totally agreed machan..

    The problem with SA is that they are extremely weak in facing spinners. Specially in sub continent. And also there very bad fortune in world cups :-). But as u said they also have a very good team nowadays.

    As a cricket lover, I really like to see Aussies get beaten. In fact no hard feelings with them. But one team’s domination in a sport is very very bad for the progress and competitiveness of the sport. That’s why..

    Yeah, we have to find good middle order batsmen. May be we can expect a big change in our players mentality with our new captain. A good captain can dramatically change a team. Let’s hope for the best..
