Associates teams need to play the top eight teams, how do u esxclude them and expect them to prosper, i thing the commentators are biased towards the top eight teams

I think this time out program is too biased. I don't think sanjay manjareka should be in these type of discussions. All his insight is about India and to be frank India was the pre tournament favorites but they haven't performed to the expectation. only there top three has scored and bowling has been very ordinary. Fielding has been lethargic. Someone like Tony Greig would have bought more insight about the situation. South Africa is the team to beat but India is not a close second. South africa's batting, bowling and fielding has been superb. India's top order batting has been good that's the only thing that is going for them. So how can India be a close second?? Every other commentator and journalist says India is not doing well except for Mr. Manjareka. How funny is that?? He is too biased. Most uninsightful pod cast I've listened tooo.

The final analysis of the best teams in the contest was ridiculously biased. South Africa is arguably the best so far. But to say that India follows closely is indeed ridiculous. Pakistan has been miles better than India, and Sri Lanka was also way ahead. If India manages to win any of the knock out matches, that should be viewed as an upset. The best 3 teams in the contest are South Africa, Pakistan & Sri Lanka and probably in that exact order. If 2 of these 3 teams meet in the Finals, then this world cup would surly be a success.
