ICC CWC 2007 - The Final Four

ICC CWC 2007 - The Semi Final LineUp

There you go. The final 4 of the ICC CWC 2007 have been decided and it's basically what one had predicted even before the tournament started. A few hiccups here and there but things finally went the way they were thought to go! So, here's the final four:

Australia: The ultimate package. By far the favourites.
Sri Lanka: The most versatile attack. Invincibles in this form, just give them a slow dead pitch
South Africa: If they were called chokers, Greame Smith dismissd any such notions with utter disdain today.
New Zealand: The black horse. How much ever I want SA to win, nothing like a Aus-NZ final!

Stats Reveal

Another intersting thing I noted today. While everyone here want the likes of our "seniors" - Ganguly, Sachin, Sehwag out of our Indian Cricket Team (yes, the same Team India as it is more fashionably called these days) because of their age and the need of a fresh change, almost everyone forgot to see the top run getters in this World Cup- the average age comes upwards of 33. Apparently, experience does matter!
