    Very promising stats

    India and Australia have played each other in 9 one-dayers since the 2003 World Cup final.

    The scoreline is overwhelmingly one-sided in Australia's favour, P 13, W 9, L 2, NR 2. As close to hopeless as you can find ahead of Sunday's allegedly marquee game.

    The last time India beat Australia in a one-dayer was 9 matches ago. To put it in perspective, that was at a time when VVS Laxman played one-day internationals, John Wright was India's coach, no-one knew that Sourav Ganguly would not be part of the one-day side in a matter of a couple of years and Greg Chappell probably didn't even know Jagmohan Dalmiya's email address.

    Given that my pre-tournament prediction (to Ganesh, on instant messenger) on Sri Lanka winning the trophy, and my change of stand when Pakistan emphatically said 'We are like this only', have been thrown into the dustbin, I'll try some reverse-woofing.

    Australia to win on Sunday by a margin of at least 120 runs (if batting first) or 6 wickets (if chasing).

    2 sledge(s):

    Bold prediction, although not too different from most other people, I suspect.

    I'm still holding out some hope. Records are made to be broken, right?
