My Predictions for the World Cup

by Devanshu Mehta

Ok– so this is part whimsy, part wishful thinking and part serendipity.

Group A Ranking:

  1. Australia
  2. Sri Lanka
  3. Pakistan
  4. New Zealand

Group B Ranking:

  1. South Africa
  2. India
  3. England
  4. West Indies (though I’d just as easily say Bangladesh, but I think Ireland may beat Bangladesh which will negate another Bangladesh upset.)

QUARTER FINALS

  • Australia v West Indies
  • Sri Lanka v England
  • Pakistan v India
  • New Zealand v South Africa

SEMI FINALS

  • Australia v India
  • Sri Lanka v South Africa

FINALS
India
v
Sri Lanka

WINNER
India

At least, that’s what I came up with while playing Cricinfo’s Predict the Winner. And even I don’t agree with it.

And it’s in complete contradiction with what I thought was the best path for India to get to the final.
