    India played all the world cups it means that they qualify for 8 times.

    Only 2 times

    But dont worry, India will do a 3rd this time

    The team of 2007 is very steady.

    Factors helping India -

    The best indian team going for the World Cup after the 1983 Presidential Cup. India has found good openers in Ganguly and Uthappa, with Sehwag in there too. Yuvraj, Dravid, Dhoni and Tendulkar steady the middle order to form one of the best middle order batting. Lower middle order of Kumble, Harbhajan, Zaheer can hit a few runs too.

    As on bowling - Zaheer and Sreesanth/Munaf Patel will be opening and are not as bad. Kumble, Harbhajan and Sachin - Sehwag can bowl many spin overs between them. That leaves one guy extra. He can be employed as a strike bowler - Irfan/Sreesanth or Dinesh Kaarthick as the 11th guy. Irfan can bat as well.

    It is a very powerful batting line-up, and make take a beating on their bowling lineup.

    Quality Fielders are in plenty - Yuvraj, Uthappa, Sachin, Kaarthick. Fielders like Munaf Patel will have to be hided on the field.

    There are all winning chances for India. India will reach the semi-finals for sure.

    India have enjoyed a great run in previous world cups as well.

    In 1979 we were almost through to semis. In 1983 we won the cup. In 1987 we were in the semis. In 1996 we were in semis (because of indian crowd, match given to Sri Lankans). In 1999 we beat Pakistan (who earlier beat Australia). Then in 2003 we reached the finals.

    India has been in all 8 Wolrd Cups. As they are a full member of the ICC they do not have to qualify for the tournament - they automatically gain entry.
