Katich (they've stuck with him up to now)
Hussey (will replace Martyn)
Hogg (or Warne if he makes a comeback)
McGrath (Will be back in time for the world cup)
When batting first usually post high scores that are tough to chase
5 - 11 provide bowling options.
Big hitters - Symonds, Lee, Hussey, Gilchrist, Ponting, etc
Good opening bowling pair: McGrath (accuracy)/ Lee (aggression)
Gilchrist is hit and miss and when he gets out the scoring rate drops.
Katich falls into the trap of batting too slowly
Willstruggle for bowlers if McGrath or Lee is injured.
Definitely make the semis. Best ODI team in the world. Should win.
Bat down to number 9
Big hitters - Pollock, Kemp, Boucher
Good opening bowling pair - Pollock (Accuracy)/Ntini (Aggression)
Finish the bowling well in the last 5 overs with Hall, Pollock, etc
Score a lot of runs in the last ten overs
Kallis and Dippenear can slow down the run rate
Not much bowling variety
Could have a new captain if Smith continues to fail
Will be looking to make up for last time. Have never made a final but might be in with a chance.
