    How would the other teams have done?

    How would the other teams have done in this series against the Aussies?

    1) West Indies
    2) New Zealand
    3) India
    4) Pakistan
    5) Sri Lanka
    6) South Africa

    My opinion...

    1) 5-0 Aus
    2) 3-1 Aus
    3) 2-0 Aus
    4) 2-0 Aus
    5) 3-0 Aus
    6) 3-1 Aus

    If Australia were playing any other side they probably wouldn't have played with the intensity they did in this series, so it would improve others chances of winning. However in this sort of touch I can't imagine any of those teams beating Australia once.

    They beat the 2nd best team in the world 5-0, so they would all be 5-0.

    I can because of the reason you mentioned above.

    What evidence is there to suggest that New Zealand or South Africa would have beaten Australia in a Test match?
    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."

    Just my gut feeling, this wasn't meant to be a serious thread where I analyzed all possibilities and and statistics to come up with logical solutions.

    It was just a meant to be fun thread to see what everyone's gut feeling was about this.

    Also, you never know the with the black jerseys the sun might've reflected into McGrath's eyes and he would not have bowled as well as he did.

    The fact is that New Zealand hasn't beaten Australia in a Test in forever and South Africa is struggling to deal with one of the worst travelling teams (India), in South Africa. It's really hard to find faith that they would be capable of doing better than England.

    If Panesar's beard couldn't prevent a whitewash...well, there ya go.

    Vettori's glasses and Paul Harris' hair would...

    On a serious note, there is always a first time for everything. Also, one of the worst travelling teams, but let's not forget, in the past few years we have improved considerably.

    You're just mad I put WI 5-0 .

    Admittedly yes, but South Africa really shouldn't be struggling to beat India on South African pitches if they are to even compete with Australia in Australia.

    Agreed, but once again it was just a fun little thing... if I went into analyzing the different teams properly and logically, I am sure the overall results against each team would not be so pretty.

    Agreed. The West Indies would sneak it 3-2 off Bravo's bat.
