It would be nice if Australia, as supposed current World Champions, could win a match...
Admittedly I have been enjoying the matches and it has been 'edge of your seat' stuff, but it would still be nice have some points on the board.

I certainly have respect for those teams, but aside from a lack of wag in the Australian tail, they aren't that bad a team...

I think Australia is going overboard with its rotation policy. A guy, irrespective of his performance, is not guaranteed 2 games in a row. Then, how does a team combination or the player settle down.
Its alright to give a test player who plays both forms of the game to give a rest. But why rest those who are so-called pure one-day specialists. Take, for instance, a player like Andrew Symonds. I believe he has got talents in batting and fielding. So, why not play him in every game so he has the chance to develop into a match winner.
This way such players will get to play at the international level consistently. If you have a talent stick with him and give enough chances.
Exciting cricketing days ahead.

I think its amusing that the Australia-A (ie the team made up of spare players) beat both SA and NZ but the front line cannot.
But I agree on the whole 'quality of cricket' statement, I'd much rather watch a series of close matches than a complete wipe-out. Even if it was my country doing the wiping.

I personally think Austalia is doing the right thing at the moment. Their ultimate aim is to win the World Cup in 2003 in South-Africa, what better than "playing" around with your batting in a competition against two of the top 5 one-day teams in the world.
Sure it would be more fun if you won whilst doing it, but heck who is going to remember loosing this VB series when Waugh raises the Cup above his head in Johannesburg in 2003. (I assume the final will be played on The Wanderers).
And hey there are still 5 games left anything can still happen, its cricket remember

    Go the Kiwis! - after taking hidings from Australia since I can remember its good to NZ competing! - still NZ teams like this come round like this every decade or so given our lack of depth - only 3.5m NZers. Still Australia got a new world champion in Darts last week
    Looking forward to the English coming to NZ in Feb and giving them a bit of a caning! Ive got a few late nites that month

    Though I like Australia as a team, but i think they should sometimes be embarrased by others like this series to have a balance in crciketing power over the world...
    I don think any kinda match fixing is here. U know NewZealand did very well in the test series vs Australia also...

    I'd love to think so but the World Cup is a long way off and alot can happen in the meantime! If they can keep performing the way they are at the moment it will be good. Reading the press from home, I think the NZ media is getting overconfident - this usually happens just before some disaster befalls the NZ team (either on or off the pitch - ie a couple of years ago in SA several of the current team got busted smoking pot! Cairns, Fleming and Nash included).
    I think you can't write off Aust (I think the series is organized in their favour in terms of the number of back to back games NZ and SA play - but hey its their competition!) nor SA just yet.
    What would be great for the world cup is several teams (Aust SA NZ Ind Pak SL WI Eng...?) who can beat each other on their day all going for the cup

    Right, so Aust just threashed SA (sorry about that JDJ ) and that was a game I didn't enjoy.
    I enjoyed the one Australia lost more than that! (I didn't see the first half so I can't comment on SA's performance)
    Makes the series a whole lot more exciting tho, the bonus point will come in veeeeerrrrry handy for us.
    Not too happy that the games on the 1st and 3rd of Feb are local (Perth) but I don't think I'll get to either. I wouldn't even mind seeing NZ v SA. (I'm really enjoying watching NZ play)

    Oh, and it seems the rotation system has been thrown out! It was getting very bad publicity, and it was interesting listening to the commentators be subtle but definitely negative during their commentry.
    I agree that there were positive aspects to it, but I think it'll be remembered as "a concept that sounded promising but failed to deliver"

    It depends how you look at it. If its ultimate aim was to deliver in 2003. The people that criticized it now , might end up eating their words when Australia is NOT in the final in 2003.
    As for smoking pot you should have seen in how much trouble Gibbs got for doing that , but then he also took money from Hansie .

    If Aussies are planning for cup '2003, will Mark Waugh, at age 37, still be around or for that matter, his twin, Steve. I've nothing against the Waugh bros. In fact I consider Mark as the most stylish batsman playing currently and Steve as a strong willed committed cricketer. But surely they are fighting time and are less effective. Why not rest Steve once in a while and groom another skipper as a rotation policy.
    The more the merrier: the more games youngsters play, the better and experienced they will be.
    Rotation policy should be for players who play both tests and one-dayers. Pure one-day specialists should be part of most of the games as they have to go through the grind of playing cricket at a consistent level. I may sound repetitive but this is my humble opinion.
    jytsika
    ps. How come no one's commenting on India-England one day series. India and England are on the other end of the spectrum. India has zero rotation policy and England rarely plays one-day cricket.

    It is sure that aussies has the best team right now. However, I will not bet on them for world cup.
    I think either England or Pakistan (they have the most unpredictable team). :roll:
    NZ just cant carry the momentum. balck caps come good for few matches but when the crunch situation comes, they fail to deliver.
    S.A cannot win because never a country won world cup on its home ground.so they are out of contention.
    There Aus and NZ will take on in final. And aussies will Win there.
    And for Ind Vs Eng. England will take the one-day series. i can bet on this either if will be a draw 3-3 or Eng. will take it.
    If they able to stop Tendulkar, who they are successfully able to stop in last 2 matches but he will come firing. Nasser has to be ready to hear the music.
    my 0.2 cents..

    This news just to hand:
    Wow, what a fantastic game last night. Aus v NZ.
    Australia were determined to lose, but had forgotten to inform Bevan. Not too often you see someone come in at No. 6 and decide to win the game on their own using the tail end.
    Add to that the fact that Australia's tail end has been dismal to date and it was a fantastic achievement.
    I was sitting on the edge of my chair for almost an hour, I didn't really care if OZ lost (cos they didn't deserve the win), but I did think Bevan deserved the century.
    I'm still grinning though!

    It was completely fantastic
    NZ have definitely set themselves up as the team to beat, and quite deserved. Australia have never really looked like beating them, and I still consider this a Bevan inspired fluke.
    I still pray for a NZ-Aust final, but RSA deserve a place too and possibly have a better chance. I guess I can live with the fact that Oz might not make it...

    Hey you only deserve a place if you win. So if SA does not win they don't deserve to be there.
    Personally I would like to see a SA-Australia final , if only to get revenge for the 3-0 thrashing SA got in the test series
    See here as to what SA and Australia have to do for my "dream" final

    That was a great game last nite - you can never write off Aus - especially when it seems they have thier backs to the wall...
    I fear the NZ run may be losing steam - injuries to Cairns and Vettori - though they have played well above my expectations
    fingers crossed for a good result (NZ win!!) in Perth
