Dude, lets just talk cricket without getting into character analysis. We're all (with the possible exception of one) have a good enough discussions without resorting to this anytime we have differing opinions.

I think the real wind-up merchant started the thread anyway...

You can argue this......But Australia has been the most successful team for the past, well few years. (Or At least one of)

When a team (permit me to be arogant for a moment) as Australia has been so succesfull over the past few years, I think its just nature to wait for "them" to fall (yeah, we lost to bangladesh, wopty fucking doo...as embarassing as you may think it was, anyone can beat anyone on the day....watch for the Shepparton East Under 12's Vs Australia game later this year )

Clearly South Africa have proven that they can be the best, and challenge the best, and prehaps right now, are OD Crickets best, and this will be an increasing trend I think for the next couple of years,
That is, Tests not over in 3 days, and series not going all Australis' way.
The World cup next year is going to nowhere near be a "walkover"

If the one dayers are anything to go by, we're in for a great test series.

Once again I have achived a pointless post...........

Does anyone else think 20/20 cricket could have been added in the commenwealth games?

Just as a knock out competition.

I mean they had Cricket as a "Trial" in '98 didnt they?

I think 20/20 would be pretty fun to have in the Commonwealth Games. I think if you're going to have cricket as part of something like the Commonwealth Games then 20/20 is probably the most appropriate 'type' of cricket to have IMHO.

20/20 would work well in the Comm games, mainly because you would be able to field a fairly full strength team without raiding the ODI/Test teams - and most domestic cricket is finished too.

As Of Tea on Day 2, I've only been checking the live scores, but it seems to be a decent game on again.

Well the Proteas are getting the shit kicked out of them at the moment, but I think they have the fortitude to draw the current Test.

It became quite exciting in the end, overall a very good test match for Australia. Just goes to show a different class that Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath bring to their bowling attack. It would have been a draw a without Warnie.

Ricky Ponting for me is the number 1 batsman in the world. While, Lara and Tendulkar are slowly fading away, Ponting is getting better by each innings. The way he dominates bowlers and commands at crease can only be compared to great Viv Richards in his prime.

A good series win for Aussies, but they must quickly find a bowling solution. Bring back Jason Gillespie

Wow. I didn't watch it, but sounded like a grandstand finish.

Apparently Kasprowicz had a "haunted" look in his eyes towards the end. I suspect he'll never live down Edgbaston, poor guy.

When Kasper made room to deflect the ball down to fine leg, it was so like what happened at Edgbaston in Ashes. Superb innings from Martyn, Hussey and Lee.

Gillespie is back for Bangladesh
