The 2007 Cricket World Cup does not officially begin until Sunday (March 11) when the opening ceremony will be held. And the first match – between Pakistan and hosts West Indies – does not happen till Tuesday, March 13.

However, in many real ways, the World Cup will begin for Pakistan today (Friday, March 9) when Pakistan meets South Africa – who many consider to be the favorites along with Australia – in a warm-up game. Neither side is likely to – or should – take the game lightly; certainly not Pakistan which is so beset with so many problems.

It would be interesting to find out who our readers think is most likely to win the 2007 World Cup. But given that this is ‘All Things Pakistan‘ we are most interested in your views on how Pakistan will do.

Cast your vote. Ask your friends to do so too. And then jump into the comments section to shout out how you think the Pakistan team will fare. Our only request is that when you vote, try to vote analytically rather than emotionally. Remember, the question is not what you WANT, but what you think is MOST LIKELY.

THIS POLL IS NOW CLOSED. See results of Poll Here.

    OK. Maybe I was wrong. Everyone has lost interest in this. But it seems that we may just win. And that changes everything.

  2. Daktar says:

    I say Pakistan wins tomorrow inteh first match against West Indies. Any takers?

    From BBC: Urdu only for Pakistan cricketers

    The Pakistan cricket team have been BANNED from speaking in English at World Cup news conferences to prevent players from being misquoted.

    BANNED? What about directed or advised. No they need to BAN speaking in English. Idiots!!!!

    I’d be surprised to see Pakistan go past the Super Eight stage; stunned if they make it to the final and elated if they win.

    Has anyone heard the latest quote from Boby Woolmer. He say’s ‘South Africa are his personal favourites’.

    Is it just me or does anyone else think that is not the thing to be saying when you are in competition. It doesn’t exactly instill confidence in your camp, when your head team manager has a favourite team other this his own. I think when your getting paid millions of dollars as a manager of a team, you should a little more mindfull of what you say in public.

    I just found that to be a little strange. It seems like we have already lost even without playing a single match.
