    Quite possibly... quite a logical prediction, you must've analyzed Bravo's stats quite thoroughly .

    Naw. I just utilized the equation whereby Bravo = awesome > Australia.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    If Australia played a similar level of cricket, they would have beaten any team in the world 5-0, and in fact would probably have hammered a number of them even worse. South Africa toured last year and Australia didn't play half as well and still won 5 of the 6 tests, so I don't see why they'd have managed to win one.

    Obviously it depends a bit on individual performances, but realistically I don't think there's any way you could predict a score other than 5-0.
    I know a place where a royal flush
    Can never beat a pair

    West Indies, India, Sri Lanka, New Zealand and South Africa would undoubtedly have been thrashed IMO. Pakistan may have competed a bit better, but would still have gone down 5-0.

    Reckon Pakistan(or too many others) wouldn't have lost the 550 odd declared first up test tbh.

    5-0 against any team. England are the second best side but weren't allowed to play as well as they can. The pressure Australia applied with their bowling was unbelievable and always someone came through with the bat. Everyone contributed at some stage. I can't remember such a complete team performance.
    Only two states to be in - Queensland and drunk.

    West Indies would have.
    India likely would have choked.
    South Africa would have pulled an India.
    New Zealand probably would have saved the match.
    Sri Lanka may have gone down.
    Pakistan would have attained a draw on Mohammad Yousuf's bat.

    So maybe you have a point.

    They might not have made 550 declared batting first, though. Pakistan could have, but I don't think any of the others would have.

    India on their day could have. Lara on his day could have taken to the West Indies close.
    Sri Lanka and South Africa probably not.
    New Zealand definitely not.

    New Zealand don't play Test cricket anymore (well it is more rare then a Geriant Jones 50 these days) and their middle order is more MIA then Marcus Trescothick. Plus they haven't played a five Test series in 35 years (Tony Cozier said the last time they played a five Test series was in the West Indies in 1971).
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    Didn't New Zealand post up a similar score in 01-02 at the WACA? So it is not without precedent...

    Two sparkling analogies there.
