    Australia can be bloody beaten!

    Pakistan had shown signs of that each day 1 in tests, in 1st and maybe 2nd season

    Perth 5/78 AUS
    Melbourne 1/193
    Sydney 2/245

    Australia on the back foot, it is the hardness of the Aussies that gets them through, that's put them on top, can be beaten, but loses control, New Zealand and India were the lastest losses in ODIU and test respectally, Australia were looking like to win the 2nd ODI, then no 11 man Mills kills them byh 4 6's in a row, and Australia really had to fight, same situlation in the 1st one, 22 runs in one over saw NZ through!

    Tbh, I don't really think Australia will lose any type of series for atleast another year. The other teams can put all they've got into it, but the Aussies are just too good right now.

    and pakistan showed nothing. they didn't show they could beat australia at all, sure they got themselves into fairly good positions, however, they lacked any maturity or experience to actually threaten the australians.

    Experience is what they need, they have some good talent coming through. Salman Butt, Danish and a few others

    looking back at aus last year their dominance has been... awesome.
    1) sri lanka beaten
    2) india at home beaten
    3) pak beaten
    4) NZ beaten

    but at the same time they havent played the team i believe will dethrone them - england!
    Best batsman = Rahul Dravid
    Best bowler = Muttiah Muralitharan

    You could also say that England haven't played Aus yet and thus are yet to have a real test.

    I agree, but then again I wouldn't have bet on Charl Langeveldt taking five in the first innings at CT.. I hope I am proved wrong again
