    Except that I can tell you that plenty didn't view it as a shame, more an irrelevancy.
    Call it typical English bigheadedness if you want.

    It was not irrelevant though - they needed to finish ahead of Australia A to make the final, which they didn't do. I would've thought making the final of a tournament would be a priority for any team taking themselves seriously, regardless of who the opposition teams are.

    Not if they didn't view the finals as something worth bothering about.

    Australia 6 5 1 - - 10 0.43
    Australia A 6 3 3 - - 6 0.09
    England 6 3 3 - - 6 0.08
    Zimbabwe 6 1 5 - - 2 -0.59

    Meaning Aus played Aus 'A' in the final!!
    incidentally that aus A side included the following players.....
    hayden
    blewett
    ponting
    bevan
    langer
    martyn
    m.hughes

    quite an impressive side, nearly beat australia twice in that tournament too.

    Depends if you are talking about Test or one day cricket....

    If think Aussie A would may a only a middle of the road one day side, but a pretty good test side.

    I don't know, that's why I responded.

    What side ? I'm not referring to the Aust A from all those years ago in the VB series with eng and Zim, I'm talking about the Aust that went 1 all with the west indies over the wkd.

    The idea of a second aussie team is ridiculous. Remember how the indian batsmen battered the aussie bowlers when mcgrath and warne weren't there. And when England comfortably won that sydney test. The whole reason why they are the best team is cos their top class players perform consistently. An Aussie second team may be able to beat Bangladesh and Zimbabwe and thats about it.
