End of Australia?????????

The last few months seems to be the worst time of australian cricket. I think the team which ruled the cricket world was not the team Australia, bt it was the team of Steve. As the teammen of former captain are retiring the performance of the team is getting downwards. Though Ponting is a good captain, he is unabe to hold on the team spirit. Is this really the end of Australia???

You see when you steal to reach on top then you will have to fall. Under the captaincy of Steve Waugh Australia plays to win and indeed they win. Under the captaincy of Ricky Ponting Australia plays to steal and win. If person should be honest with them selves they will see that Australia does not win a game fair and in the spirit of the game. The umpires all side with this team because bibery was the time of day. I am so glad that I have seen them falling under the captaincy of the Ricky Ponting because if he had play fair then this would not have happen. Stats - They steal from Sri Lanka in the World Cup. They steal for India and see India beat them convincing. They steal from West Indies at least this is the side that has been stolen from time and time again. They steal from South Africa - now that there is no umpire there to tarnish their name S.A. has given them a run for their money. 2 games win in a series of 3. In every thing one should be honest.

i dont think its the end of australia in cricket its just that they have found competition in india and south africa which is largely due to retirement of some of there greats. still if you consider they are head and shoulders above the likes of pakistan, england, sri lanka etc. even in one day i think they are still the best they have a very good well balanced team. its just the tests in which they are struggling.

According to me its an end of Australian cricket. In present team no one is there who can push up his team.The only player is Andrew Symond but in this year he was sitting outside.Also good bowler like Glenn and Shane warne and opener Adam Gilchrist got retire so at present condition of Australian team is in worst condition.
