    He is not captain as yet, Craig. He has been announced as the successor to Steve Waugh, effective as of the end of the India/Australia series.

    How exciting
    It was the obvious choice, not to take any glory away from the good fellow.

    The grooming process has been going on for a year or more - good sides tend to do this.

    good on him.

    It's been a plesure to see him develope into the player he is today and I think he will make a very good captain.

    It's a pity we won't be able to see if that's true or not (barring the wiping out of half the Aussie Cricketing population to even the game up a bit)

    Top stuff.

    Ricky Ponting deserves the Test captaincy as he has done a superb job with the ODI captaincy

    It must be really hard to have by far and away the strongest side in ODIs and still win games...

    Come on Marc. Give Punter some credit. He clearly didn't have the greatest of resources. Hayden who?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."
