Your reading comprehension skills need a lot of work.
Hint: no one says that Australian cricket is great or that we're favourites (and even if they were - people have predictions about actual cricket that will be played, how amazing). We are saying that our bowlers executed good plans to Cook and stifled his scoring. BUT NO AUSTRALIAN CRICKET IN CRISIS!!!1!!!
Look, I have absolutely no interest - and this forum in general has no interest - in a nationalistic bull**** war over whose "nation" as a whole is better/worse or which nation's "cricket" as some amorphous entity as some enormous societal edifice in on the verge of collapse. I'm interested in talking about cricket. Y'know, this sport where bowlers bowl and batsmen bat.
(This obviously doesn't include banter, but if you're taking that seriously then, well... first line holds)
