Love them or hate them, the cricket world is indeed poor without
a fighting fit baggy green outfit. It is the same feeling when the
once invincible WI deteriorated inexorably to the perennial wooden
of international cricket.
It is imperative that Aus come back once again. Of course they
are in a slump now. But I'm sure that they will bounce back. The
right thinking heads in Cricket Australia will put together a
winning team in the near future.
But I believe that Australia will not have a pronounced and endless
slump like their Windian counterparts. Their cricket does not suffer
the same external off the field problems that plagues WI cricket.
And let us hope Aus does wake up soon. And the first thing
they have to do is groom a good future skipper. Alas, the
repeated failures of Clark to come through in the crunch
disqualifies him from that post.
