I'll be supporting Pakistan although we ain't got a chance in hell of winning. Australia, NZ and RSA are the favourites. Out of the favourites, I hope RSA or NZ wins. I really don't wanna see the arrogant Aussies win another world cup.

Cool so I see your supporting Sri Lanka then

TBH with Sangakkara and Jayawardene retiring after the world cup it would be a great way to say goodbye if they can win it !!

Plus Sri Lanka have got to the final for the last 2 world cups so maybe this is their year.

I wouldn't mind if SriLanka win tbh as I got to meet Sangakkara 2 years ago on his Birthday for a chat/pics and all the SriLankans are very humble and down to earth people.

Personally I hate Australia lol but at the same time they're just tooo strong.
South Africa are always strong on paper but (especially with De villiers playing this way they look invincible) but they never seem to deliver on the big stage.

I can't see any of the Subcontinent teams (India/Pakistan/Sri Lanka/Bangladesh) being able to play on these fast paced bouncy Aussie/NZ wickets.

New Zealand look very strong and with home advantage they have a great chance. However they don't have that firepower and agression that Australia have.

West Indies are much more suited to T20 and England to Test matches and can't see either winning an ODI tournament.

So yeah by a process of elimination my money's on Australia

Yeppp... A proud Sri Lankan Supporter!

Yeah, we haven't won it since 1996...and it would be a lovely good bye present if we can beat the odds and Win!! And they are such lovely people too!

I don't like Aussie too, but it seems it might be in their favour...
But I really do hope Sri Lanka can do it...and We,supporters, believe they can aswell... :crossedf::crossedf::crossedf:
