    Dougie is good but I am not too sure about Hauritz or Harris being that good. Besides I don't think they would have done that well against India........
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    IMO Harris is even better than Bollinger. Even Hauritz is bound to get a few wickets - especially with the pressure the other 4 will create - and he can certainly score some runs.

    Watson
    Haddin
    Ponting
    Clarke
    Hussey M
    Hussey D
    White/Smith
    Johnson
    Hauritz
    Lee
    Harris
    Bollinger

    Longass tail too.

    I don't doubt that that would make the side stronger and may have made them more competitive. But the basic issues are still there and I think they have 4 years to rectify them. The problem isn't just the one dimensional-ness of the bowling (Not to mention that Hauritz is pretty ordinary too), the problem is that they were carrying a number of aging players (really the last few people of the golden generation - Husseys, Ponting, Lee etc) and there simply wasn't enough young legs to drive them forward. The other problem is that their planning was poor and their plan A (all out attack with pace) was simply a poor choice for the conditions. They didnt have a back up plan and they made some criminal mistakes throughout the competition by not experimenting with some of their other players in the squad. Its unfortunate, but the decline should have been visible to everyone well before the start of the world cup.

    So the coming WC final will be the first since 1983 to not be associated with Australia in any way.

    Yeah, a great run by the Aussies, congrats to them for an incredible run of dominance. Well done India for a competent performance too

    Yet this match wasn't anything special, some good batting, but apart from some occasional good stuff from Zaheer, is anyone going to say the bowling was class on either side?
    Do I contradict myself?

    I thought Brett Lee bowled really well apart from that one over... Mitchell Johnson was pretty good as well. Mitchell has a habit of doing that against India
    Tait was Tait, some good bowling with some absolute tripe.
    Surprised Watson didn't bowl more he looked dangerous early on.

    But agree overall bowling wasn't great from either Side.

    Good knock by Ponting... had a feeling he was going score big today... Not his most fluent but still a great knock considering the situation and so much being talked about him in the press. Good way to say **** u all.
    Finally end of era in the world cup for the Australian team.... Respect!

    Hauritz isn't a great test bowler, but he's a pretty good ODI bowler and our most reliable spinner. He's also been in stupidly good form thus summer with both the bat and ball before getting injured. I'm a Krejza fan, but Hauritz would have given the team a stable option amongst the bipolar.

    Harris is awesome, if his body wasn't completely finished he's a gun bowler in both formats. Dropping Krejza and Tait for those two would make us a much better team IMO but that's life.

    In the space of four years Australian spin stocks have gone from:

    Warne
    MacGill
    Hogg

    to

    Beer
    Hauritz
    Doherty
    Krezja

    Is it any wonder we couldn't win in India?

    To be fair, talking about succeeding in India and using Warne as an example doesn't really work.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
