ICC Cricket World Cup 2011; who is asking who will win?
1975 to 2011, many ups and downs, perhaps more of ups than downs- the cricket world cup has had a very long and fruitful journey.

But I guess we all Indian always want India to win irrespective of the field, sport, match, tournament, i.e. any thing under the sun.
So I started noticing my colleagues and they are a clueless lot themselves. I don’t know its work pressure or lack of interest in cricket but they for sure are not asking who’s going to win ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.
