A few days before the world cup started I told my friends that my favourites to make the semis were Australia, South Africa, NewZealand and West Indies. Though I am a die-hard Indian fan, I did not have enough confidence in the team that they would make it to semis. The team went on to surprise everybody by not even making it to Super 8s.
In the last two world cups, Australia defeated Pakistan and India to become the world champions and now it is the turn of another sub-continent team to challenge their supermacy. Sri Lanka deserves the place in the final. They played very well through the tournament and I hope they pull a stunner and dethrone the current champions.
