I can see us going down as well - we haven't played well at all this tournament and I've been on record as saying I'm not happy with our top order, particularly with Ponting in dismal form. Our bowling has been better than I anticipated, though Pidge is still struggling.
The consolation is that India are in worse form than we are. But if we play at our best, we should win. Even if we don't play at our best, we might still win if India don't play at their best. India have to play at their best to win.
I predict a tight OZ victory going down to the wire.
