Aussies in trouble?

Are the Aussies in trouble just before the World Cup?

Trouble could be too strong a word and its more like a spot of bother! Remember that Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist will definitely be back, Andrew Symonds will be back, but might not return in his full capacity and with regards to Brett Lee - there are no answers as yet!

Having said that, they had every other bowler who will be playing the World Cup appearing in the Chappel-Hadlee series and they looked ordinary! So is this the end of the Aussies' era of dominance in World cricket?

It will be naive to even think the thought given the fact that the Aussies always hit back strongly after losses and their trip to the carribean will, I suspect, be no different.

What this has however shown is that the Aussies can be beaten, which means that the World Cup, will not, hopefully, be a one horse race.

It remains to be seen if the other teams, have the will to fight and get their name on the ultimate trophy in One-Day Cricket.
