Cricket Super Series-- Australia v World XI

Is anybody else looking forward to watching this?

From what it sounds like, there is no true favorite in this series. The oddsmakers seem to have it fairly even, which strikes me as a bit unfair, as the rest of the world seems to me to be a bit deeper.

Yes, I'm looking forward to watching the Aussies hammered repeatedly until they reach an overall smooth, creamy texture.

I have watched a cricket match before, in a pub in town. Wish I could get televised coverage on my television at home.

The World XI will win, but I disagree with the team on nearly all counts.

The only deseriving player (outside of Flintoff) is...

Well, as they say, great minds think alike. Isn't it fantastic how South Africans, New Zealanders, West Indians, Pakistanis, Indians, and even the blimmin' Pommies now have the opportunity to collectively loathe the scum that is the Australian cricket team? Just think, the entire cricket-following Commonwealth focussing its hatred on one shitty nation!

You disagree with having Jacques Kallis on the team, though?

And Pollock.

Kallis has been picked on his reputation and need to spread out the numbers more than anything. I would have much prefered Gibbs or Smith.

Infact I would've picked Gibbs or Smith in my team (as well as Bond, Vettori, Fleming & McCullum).

:unbiased:

I'm looking forward to this as much as a root canal.

Not that I'm bitter because this game should have been against New Zealand (which it should have been if it wasn't for Sri Lanka's piss poor stance), but if Australia do lose this series it'll be interesting how much more the public are willing to turn on their team.

I've not liked our team since the Border days. I take issue with people saying we're a shitty nation, as a result of this current team, however.

Unless you live in Australia it is more than likely you're only knowledge of the creature come from entities such as the Australian Cricket Team, Rugby Team, Soccer Team, Russell Crowe and the federal government.... none of which are shining ambassadors for their country at the moment.

My feelings on the issue are well known. But I will just reitterate there is a difference between thinking Australia is a "shitty" country (in terms of values and national beliefs) and the 19.6 million people who hold Australian citizenship are all "shitty".

[seperate thought altogether]

Border's retirement ushered in an entirely new era of Australian cricket. Cricket has been held in contempt under the captaincy of Taylor, Waugh and particularly Ponting... this "Win at all costs" mentality is utterly vile. My only critisicm of the Border era would be he lost control a bit towards the end there... i.e Waugh/Warne/May etc.
