Take heart. Outlook bravely predicts that India will win the ’99 World Cup. Yes, we know it’s a bit like saying Mr Govindbhai Ahuja of Virar (W) will walk away with an Academy Award for Aunty No. 1. But what guts/genius does it take to predict that Robert de Niro stands a better chance? In other words, buck the trend and take a risk in the name of the mother republic.

Remember, if everybody is so sure that "It’s South Africa or Australia" they wouldn’t have had to stage a 42-day tournament with 12 nations in the running. Remember, cricket’s a funny sport; a game of "glorious uncertainties" where anything can happen—and usually does. Remember Sir Richard Hadlee who said that Sri Lanka would win the ’96 World Cup?
