I remembered that SL whitewashed England in a 5 match series during 2006 but they had a really **** bowling line-up.

The loss of Australia's bowling far outweighed the batting losses, Bracken Lee and Clark are their 3 frontline ODI bowlers along with Johnson and all of them were missing. If SA were missing Steyn Ntini and Morkel they'd be in a fair bit of strife too. Australia are better than you give them credit for, while they're probably not the best anymore but they are still certainly right up there.
India = most over-rated (by some of the Indian team supporters, esp. here)
India = most under--rated (by some of the non-Indian supporters, esp. here)
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Check out this awesome e-fed:
I've said Pakistan, purely because they barely play anymore sadly, but are rated as a top team, whereas the reality is that its hard to say where they really sit at the moment.
I guess NZ are so perenially underrated, esp. in ODIs, that its become something of a cliche. England might be, just becuase of their prevailing direness over the past 30-odd years in limited overs stuff, people tend to assume they remain dire no matter what is happening.
Those are all grasping at straws really however, as I don't think any teams are commonly over or under rated.
And I have to agree that all of MendisNuffSaid's posts at the moment do seem to feature a heavy element of schadenfreude and gloating towards the Aussie team, masquerading as considered analysis, but y'know, whatever...
