Australia win for a change


Sigh.

Siiiiiiiiiiiigh.

Australia have just won the ICC Champions Trophy against the plucky Kiwis. They are crowned champs having beaten the West Indies 3rd team, a Pakistan team that didn't need to win, and England team that craps itself at the sheer mention of having to face Oz in an ODI, and New Zealand...who are a solid team but certainly not a great one.

If I sound jealous its because I am.

For a few years now they've been in decline, as all South Africans will tell you, having hammered this team in the home and away ODI series' earlier this year. But now they are back on top of the rankings, have won the champs trophy and have spanked England.

It begs the question, are Australia once again a very strong ODI team?

Are they once again a very strong ODI team? Not really...it's just that the other teams have managed become more mediocre partly due to bad luck(injuries) and stupidity.

Good piont they did have a much easyier route to the final then NZ. I wonder what would have happened if the India Aus game was not called off
