View Full Version : Todays Match: Your Predictions

March 13, 2007, 12:14 AM
I used to support Pakistan after BD,but today I'm gong to support WI from the core of my heart,because heart is what WC needs,and what better team than Wi to provide it.

This time, I believe cricket needs WI to win, because there is no other team that can match their attitude on and off the field,hopefully, a good performance in the WC will revive the monsters.

West Indies won by 9 wickets- 1979|vs IndIa|HOST DIDN'T PLAY|

England won by 202 runs- 1975|vs IndIa|HOST WON|

================================================== ============
these r the resuelt of the opening games played from 1975-2003....

out of the 8 games host didn't play 2 of the games....

but out of the rest 6 games stats r really really funny......its 50/50..host nations won 3 of them and also lost 3 of them...

so todays game will b very very interesting.............WestIndians r experienced enough of playaying Opening game of WC then Pakis..they have played 2 so far whereas Pakis played 0.. rveryone will b remember last WC opening game and B'Laras ton....Specially after that defeat against India, WI will try to bounce back.

My bet will b for WI

50-50 chance for both team.

March 13, 2007, 06:02 AM
I'll pick WI any day over Paikka's...
Wish West Indies wins the game One of the world cup.

I think it's difficult to make a prediction as both teams are in some trouble... West Indies are relying on Chris Gayle but he has recently had a negative tradiction at Sabina Park (his home-ground) as he had a pair on the last Test against India last summer and a duck in the ODI of the same series.
Pakistan are missing almost all their usual bowling attack and Naved has been out of form recently too, so this could lessen the chances of another "calypso-collapso"... good luck to both teams!

(btw on a statistical level it is not good for the WI that they beat the host team in the first match of last world cup... will history repeat itself?)
