In cricket it depends fully on that day. My heart says India will win but I think Australia is the favourite since it is happening in their home. "Sehwag and Wasim Akram said South Africa as the top favourites, despite their form as they believed the conditions Down Under would suit them.Meanwhile, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar believed that both India and Pakistan had the ingredients to win the title.
