    I think it was a fairly predictable line-up, I don't think Australia would want to change too much from the side that crushed South Africa.

    I think it's time for an Australia v Rest of The World series.

    It's the only way that squad are going to be stretched.

    Oh, come on ! ....what was that 2-1 loss to Pak recently, or the World series earlier where NZ and SA got the better of them ? That was not "stretching" I presume, more like "walloping"...eh ?

    Don't be so sure.Things aren't gonna be so easy.

    I reckon Australia's recent slip-ups have been down to complacency for the most part.

    Yeah, complacency has always been an excuse...but losing is losing whatever the cause is, I don't really care.

    "complacency"??? LOL

    Then i guess India's poor overseas record is due to homesickness, bland food available over there, cold weather etc

    Without Waugh's, Aussies aren't gonna be champs again.SA or India wil be the champs in '03.

    Bye Bye Aus!
