BF Fan From India,
My final 2 cents.
1. To win the world cup, you don't need to be having pinch-hitters, big hitters, fat hitters nor you need to be consistently scoring 250 or chasing 450 etc. All you need is a team that can play good 8-10 games over a period of 10-20 days.
2. To dream of winning the world cup, and yes, even for Ireland or Nepal, is the right thing to do. To ask them to not dream because of so-and-so reasons is a ridiculous thing to do.
Remember, Kenya reached the last cup's semi-finals. Two more good games, and they would've won the cup!
