I agree with you, which makes me think I must be wrong. :)

I could obviously go wrong on the semifinal picks themselves but if it
goes as it should even the final two (based on odds) could be Ind vs
SL or Aus vs SL. I am betting on both India or Australlia (whoever
wins) to beat Pak in the semifinal.

Aus vs Pak Australia have a much higher percentage of beating Pak in
the semifinal at Mohali than India beating Pak but even in an India vs
Pak match India would have an edge. (A small edge but an edge). Of
course we could end up with a Pak vs SL or even a Pak vs SA final.
Anything can happen, this is cricket.

Going to be very very exciting. Pakistan beating Aus has really made
it very exciting. Otherwise Aus would have played WI and Ind would
have played NZ and we would have probably seen Aus vs Ind in the
semifinal at Mohali. Now its a quaterfinal between these two in
Ahmedabad (so India have a slight edge but whoever wins the toss will
win the match). If India win the toss and bat first its a 65 percent
Indian chance for victory. If Australia win the toss and bat first its
a 60 percent chance of an Australian victory. Either team can win
depending upon who wins the toss. On a flat track Australia have a
much better chance of winning. On a flat track if Australia bat first
they probably have a 75 percent chance of winning. So I'm betting it
will be a spinning track which will give that slight edge to India.

And nobody is mentioning the only team that has not lost to another QF
qualifier and as had and successfully come through more pressure
situations this WC than any other team in the Quarters... England.

(granted SL are favorites and should win but then so should have
India, SA & WI against England.)

I think England have done well under pressure (and not well at times)
and are probably more ready for a Q/F match than some other teams. I
will not be surprised if the beat SL.
