    englands luck could be in

    On the back of a successful Test year, England's one-day team are coming into their own – they routed India in the NatWest Challenge in early September, and brushed aside their opposition in the pool stages of the Champions Trophy - and they may have timed their peak to perfection. But to end their miserable record of 14 consecutive losses against a buoyant Australia, a run which started way back in January 1999, Vaughan must look to his allrounders Andrew Flintoff and Paul Collingwood, in particular, to continue to produce the goods.

    hahaha has anyone read this article on cricinfo?
    to say ur inform because u beat india and sri lanka at home shows a complete ignoriance of the game. apart from teams such as bangladesh and zimbabwe, india would be the easiest team to play at home (in enlgnad, kiwi and aussie conditions)

    You'd be well-advised to link to the article instead of simply copying out a paragraph from it.

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."

    Doesn't that suggest that she recognises the talent of the Aussie side? And that England have to play up to their best to beat them (just like everybody)

    Although not completely balanced, she's seeing the possibilities that are there. And besides, game isn't lost for England yet...

    Does that explain why you are now whining in two threads instead of just the one? And which English medium are you referring to? I haven't perceived a deal of hype - plenty of realism. But then again, I'm over here - and you're over there (thank goodness)

    Oh the irony, considering the thread you've just started.

    Who did they just play (and beat) in the Group Stages? World number 2 ranked Sri Lanka I believe.

    So if the 2nd team in the world isn't creditable, who is?

    sri lanka in england, new zealanad and aussie have a very small sucesses rate. no matter where they are ranked currently. and well well they proved to be right. englands luck was in. but i do still beleive tht the comment was still permature from cricinfo.
