The cricket world cup is the prestigious world championship of One Day International cricket which is held every four years between the test-playing nations and a few qualifiers. West Indies is the host of 2007 edition. The quantity of the participant teams will be sixteen this time round. Along with the usual test-playing nations (Australia, New Zealand, West Indies, England, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh), there will also be teams like Netherlands, Scotland, Bermuda, Canada, Kenya and Ireland. Among them, Ireland and Bermuda are playing in the cricket world cup for the very first time! The team grouping for the World Cup 2007 has been done based on the world rankings as of April 2005 meaning that the top 4 teams play in 4 different groups and so on.

The first warm-up match of the Cricket World Cup 2007 will be held on March 5th between the home team West Indies and Kenya. The grand opening ceremony is set to take place on 11th March. The group stage matches will begin on the 13th of March and end on 25th (the next day being the reserve day). The second  round robin stage, called ‘Super Eight Series’ starts from 27th March and the best 4 teams there will be competing with each other on the 24th and 25th of April. There will be altogether 51 One-Day-International matches and the most anticipated of them all, the Finals, will take place in Barbados on 28th April bringing an end to the 47-day cricket-fest.

With just over a fortnight to go, the Cricket World Cup 2007 has created immense excitement among the viewers and supporters of the game.

So who do you think will win this edition of the world cup?

    Bellur,
    Till the round robin league matches are over, one cannot predict anything. However, I personally feel, this time India, New Zealand and South Africa have better chances.

    It is true as said it will be diffcult to predict with so much of star studded teams and some other dark horses which may upset the calculations. Looks like NZ is getting in to terms when it is really needed if they keep thier tempo they are very formidable side. india if plays as a team to its full otential they too are a difficult side to beat. aussies, SA, Pak, SL are other contenders I feel four out of these six will make it to last 4 let us see wait and watch countdown has already started

    kudos to Indian team let them do well
    rahul bring glory to state and nation

    if one wants really to know who will win the world cup, then one must analyse the charts of the captains of the team considering the transit at the time of game. it could be a possibility to come at some conclusion , it is a rigrous job one has to calculate and predict with full concentration.
    yes this is possible to predict the winner.
