"I think, in the next two years, we will be bringing home the trophies. It will be our time." -AB de Villiers

"We are a process-driven side and as long as we keep working as a team I am happy, the team has enjoyed successes together for some time now and as long as they all produce in their roles, we will do well. Whichever team strings five good performances together during the event will win. We are extremely comfortable with the two venues the tournament will be played at (Supersport Park, Centurion and The Wanderers, Johannesburg) We've had some good results at both stadiums in the past and we receive lots of local support there as well." -Mickey Arthur

"They know the conditions better than anyone else and, given their performances of late, they will have a lot of crowd support. They would have probably have wanted to play two or three one-day games to be really firing, especially since almost all the other teams have been in action recently. While I would have said that would work in favour of other teams, I think its negated by the fact that South Africa are at home. I think there are seven out of the eight teams who could stand a chance of winning (He did not want to make public which team he thought was not going to be in contention.). But I do think the four semi-finalists will be South Africa, Australia, India and Sri Lanka. Then again you underestimate New Zealand at your peril and depending on which Pakistan team shows up, they could be dangerous as well. It will definitely mean something for them to win and it certainly counts more than any normal series. Doing well in the competition will certainly give them confidence ahead of the 2011 World Cup," -Shaun Pollock

Polly is as diplomatic as ever! I bet he meant to say West Indies.
