    I think it might be the ICC Champions Trophy ???

    Have looked at the ICC website and found this quote before the 2004 tournament:

    "Australia is favourite to win its first ICC Champions Trophy according to seven team captains. Habibul Bashar, Stephen Fleming, Graeme Smith, Richard Staple, Steve Tikolo, Inzamum-ul-Huq and Michael Vaughan have all tipped the World Champions to win the title, while Ricky Ponting rates India’s chances for success."

    it is odd how the aussies seem to be in a little bit of a slump around the ICC champs trophy, yet were so well prepared for the world cup in 2003.

    Different format. Remember Australia started a little slowly in the 1999 World Cup, but because of the round robin nature they recovered, reached the final and thrashed Pakistan.

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."

    Yes but the best teams keep up a high intensity regardless of match importance.

    They were still incredibly close to going out on more than 2 occasions and were by no stretch of the imagination the best side in the tournament.
