The most awaited contest of this year
the ICC cricket world cup is about to kick-off.
The tournament commences with the match between India and Bangladesh.
India was given a massive blow last time in 2007 when Bangladesh
had a good day to perform and they knocked India down.
Today, when India takes on Bangladesh, the probability of
victory is more than 70% with India. The reasons are:
1. India has a strong batting line-up with Tendulkar, Sehwag, Dhoni, Yusuf Pathan,
Yuvraj and Raina.
2. The game is taking place in a sub-continental pitch and the
spinners have a major role. Since India's spin combination is
good (Harbhajan Singh, Piyush Chawla and Ashwin), and they lack
good spinners it becomes an advantage with India.
3. Bangladesh haven't performed well in the ODI's during the last four years.
The team is not balanced.
In spite of all that, cricket is a game of uncertainity. A minor mistake can take the game to the opponents. A win may occur by a whisker. From a critics view the probability of victory for todays game is
