    Complete Domination

    This display from Australia is simply incredible. They are absolutely smashing the Sri Lankans.

    Belted 319 from 50 overs, including a ton from Ponting and 99 from Gillchrist.

    Sri Lanka are now 4/48 with Jayasuriya in hospital retired hurt (effectively 5 down).

    Australia are on a different evel at the moment.

    "Challenge" is just not enough, the operative word should be "conquer". Is there any team recently which can say that?

    England were the only team to challenge...lol
    Lets not forget that Australia have not played New Zealand and will not play South Africa or The West Indies..although I have no doubts Australia probably would have or will win those matches.

    Yes, but it still stands that England have been the only nation to challange Australia for a while, since NZ and SA toured Australia in fact. And 2 close matches in a row means it ain't a fluke either. Although Australia have eventually won the matches England have challanged them, no one else has.

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    Poor Jayasuriya, is his arm officially broken or just bruising?

    I think Aussies will murder New Zealand there is a gulf of class between them.

    Yes like Australia failed to reach the finals of the VB series when NZ and SA were over?

    I want NZ to play Aus in the semis. I think they have a real good chance of beating them.

    Looks unlikely, Austrlia will finish as number one team in SS, while India will be the runner up.NZ is most probably going to get the third slot while SL will end up as the fourth team.That way its going to be an AUS VS SL & INd vs NZ semis!


    Though if Kenya do beat the Zimb then Kenya might creep into the semis at the expense of Lanka

    NZ must beat one of India or Aus to progress, unless SL fail to beat Zim (which, dismal as they were today, I don't see happening)

    Aus-NZ final for me.

    NZ have the bowling to beat Aus.
    Ind have the batting to beat Aus.

    It's a hard choice......

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."
