Time to stick my neck out. Some of my predictions for the World Cup:
Semi-Finalists: India, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies
South Africa because they are on a high, Sri Lanka because that is the team in form, West Indies because they have a major advantage of knowing all pitch conditions, and India because we are the best. No Australia because they are an aged, injured team.
Best Batsman in the Series: Kumar Sangakkara
Conditions similar to Sri Lanka and he is a class batsman.
Best Batsman for India: Sachin Tendulkar
Because he is God.
Best Bowler in the Series: Shane Bond
No one is as lethal as him these days.
Best Bowler for India: Ajit Agarkar
His skiddy bowling would work really well in West Indian pitches, and he is a wicket taker.
Upset of the Tournament: Kenya defeating England
Time will tell if I can claim to be Nostradamus 😛
