    With all the discussion around players, I think what Australia needs more than anything is a new coach.

    Rixon, imo.

    Coupled with Sanga's retirement, 24th August is going to be a landmark day for cricket. Sanga, Clarke, Rogers all playing their last cricket on the same day. End of an era. And yeah, probably Watson and Siddle too.

    Serious question, which is more important to Aussie cricket fans, the WC or the ashes?

    Because it's subjective and people place their own value on these contests. For me it's the Ashes but I don't for a second say you are wrong for your pov.......so I really don't get what you don't understand.

    I feel so strongly about Test Cricket being the pinnacle that I don't understand how people could value the ODI World Cup over the Ashes which basically the de facto Test world championship

    Typically Ashes. However, this was like the 5th Ashes series in 6 years and the first home WC in 23 years....

    A lot of people just don't care that much about ODIs.
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?

    How is it the defacto world championships when South Africa is the best test team? What about Ashes in the mid80s when England and Australia were only better than Sri Lanka who were newbie minnows at that stage? Or in late 90s when England were the worst in the world (far weaker than Zim)?
