    The Waughs!!!

    Well after yesterdays aussie sides being announced do u believe Steve and Mark Waughs One Day Careers are over???

    The best chance for the Aussie selectors to see whether or not they were still up to the challenge was to send them with the Aussie 'A' side to play the 7(I think) matches against South Africa, but the selectors passed up the chance...

    Do u think that there chances of playing for the Aussie One Day side has now fully been extinguished???

    Looks like bleak days are coming for the Aussies.I still can't believe that these guys aren't playing....just like I coudn't understand why Dean Jones was dropped in the early nineties.

    It looks like they are finished. They are great players and I thought they might have been retained to the world cup anyway.

    Steve Waugh will make it into the World Cup squad for South Africa, and, after many poor performances from Shane Watson, the selectors will be forced to choose Steve Waugh for the World Cup Final ( ), in which he will score a magnificent hundred batting at number 7 and take 3 wickets to win the match and the Cup......



    ... and THEN he'll retire on his own terms.



    How good would this scenario be????

    Yeah, true Sunil... however, I'm certain that there were 11 guys in the room next to him who would've loved to have traded their green pyjamas for some yellow ones... :P

    Seeing Waugh lift the WC with the "England 99" boarding behind it? Yes, but only on Aussie TV after they try reliving their successful moments after they are annihilated in the Group Stage...

    Maybe . Well, it's more likely than Waugh batting at 7, making 100 and taking a 3-for...

    the waugh brothers are fossil now. Mark waugh was past his sell by date a long time ago. steve is almost past it too..

    i mean with the kind of batsmen oz has got why would they want to hang on to the waughs ? :I

    get real ppl..the selectors of oz are doing a grt job

    U need experence in the world cup and I am worried by dropping the 2 most experenced guys what will happen. The players that replaced them are good enough but sometimes an older face is needed to link the team together

    I seriously doubt now whether Australia will drop Shane Watson. I've said before that they've put a 'special case' label on his file & Allan Border firmly believes that they are better off stepping forward rather than backwards with Steve Waugh.

    Its a tough decision as Steve Waugh & Mark Waugh are still playing very well at their old age and most other countries would probably pick them, don't fry me for this but Australia is bordering on being an ageing team & I think Border is wanting to bring in some of these guys like Watson & Clarke as soon as possible.

    As much as I hate to say it, I think it's all over for the Waugh's. They served the country well but i think it's time to move on.
