Australia got allout on 168 in first ODI against pakistan. Is this team deserve even No 2 spot , may be they are going down very deeply and very quickly. The new players like Jhonson, hopes, and other 2-3 guys are their only hope as far as my opinion.

I will rate them after seeing their performance whole year of 2009 If they continue the performance like this I think they won't be at even No3

I think this is due to consistent cricket that they have played. Series against india, against SA at home and away and then in dubai, they have exhausted now. Australia had a better rotation policy when steve was there and even half period of ponting captancy, but in last two, three years this policy was missing. May be due to retirement of their key players. I think they need a little break to regroup themselves.

I don't really know whats happening with Australia at the moment, we are definetly going down hill. I think this is because we lost alot of veteran players recently, with nobody that has international experience to replace them. We didnt give enough young people chances in the past to let them develop at an international level.
