China and India most likely produce the most professionals (Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, etc)

I don't think Australia will win though.

Either Pakistan or Sri Lanka.

Pakistan owns NZ in Cricket.

The World Cup?

I'm banking on India or South Africa,

Wouldn't completely say Paki owns NZ in cricket, well certainly not in ODI's anyway, tests we are pretty average though going 7-23-20.

Well yesterday was a bit of a struggle with the bat.

I'm wondering how long we'll persevere with Clarke.

At this point, I am thinking Sth Africa - Australia should put up a show though.

No doubt India will reach the semis. The world cup is in India, India have won 11 out of their previous 18 ODI series dating back to 2008. India is surely a gimme for a semi spot. Only SA have been as dominate. After that, you could say you have the 2nd tier of teams. India are favourites at the betting agency over here just $.25 ahead of South Africa.

Do you agree with this list from Sportingo.com??

1. Soccer/ football
2. Cricket
3. Basketball
4. Baseball
5. Rugby
6. Field hockey
7. Volleyball
8. Ice hockey
9. American/ Canadian football
10. Australian football
Actually, I dont care what the "Worlds" most popular sports are. I only care about what we here in AMERICA think. Soccer sucks. Cricket sucks. Ice Hockey sucks. Just because country's with very high population artificially drive up the "...in the World" numbers doesnt mean that its true.

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING beats good ol NFL Football.

Yeah but India are alot suited to those conditions, there's no doubt they should be one of the favorites for the final four though.
