Very premature call i think. They haven't lost that many matches - you're a
bit overe***d from their fall from grace, but they're still #1 in both
forms of the game. It doesn't matter how bad Australia get - the #2 side
still has to perform better, and that hasn't really happened consistantly
yet.

The eggs have been hatching for a while now dude. Maybe you havent
noticed them.The first egg hatched during the Indian tour of 2003-04,
when we saw what happened without Mcgrath and Warne ( though when
playing against India, I dont know how much of a factor he really is)

no...no....no...Dave/UR........you heard it here, all the credit for
Aussies's down fall goes to
MIGHTY India. That loss in 2003-04 was so devastating to Aussies that
they are still
emotionaly scared and will never be able to recover!!

Infact, Ponting admitted in the post match press conf today that it was
not SAF that beat them.
Infact it was the India behind this loss!

All the credit to Indian team!!   Way to Go Team India!

The point he's trying to make that India feasted on the Aussie bowling minus
McWarne and drew the series which would usually be unthinkable.

Have all the kids in Aus taken up basketball instead of cricket like
what happened to the Windies?

There's more sex appeal in texting.
