    Impressive as Oz have been there's no doubt in my mind that if certain teams played their strongest XIs against them might make for slightly more even contests at least.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    I voted no. I don't think the problem is Australia. The problem is everyone else. Seriously, I'm so fed up with all the other teams being so consistently rat ****. Why the hell can't India and Pakistan get their bloody act together? Its really not that hard! Why are NZ and SL playing silly buggers playing second string teams against us? Why are England so reliably dire (apart from say one series every two decades)? What the hell do the West Indies think they're doing? Do you all realise these previously proud teams are becoming jokes? Its being going on for the best part of two decades and its ruining the sport.

    Both Bond and Oram were out for injury/illness reasons. Other than that we were full strength.



    Which is embarrassing.

    Hmmm... yeah, Bond had a sore tummy didn't he? Funny the amount of comment around the traps from people over there expressing scepticism about that.

    not excluded but more competitiveness from the other countries and thats what world cricket asks for? I mean are you kidding, you got to be joking, Can you imagine the cricket world without Australia it would be night mare, but mind you we could've been colonize by the Dutch in the 1600s and if thats the case it would've made us a football nation instead of a world cricketing force, or field a cricket team as **** as the Netherlands. But instead it was the British that colonize us almost 200 yrs later after the dutch.
