    The Women will also have their World Cup this season. Australia/India/England are the strongest sides for the females.

    How could you say that when NZ won the World Cup back in 2000!??! They are at least worth a mention (and they almost won the Rosebowl last year).

    As for that schedule - NZ is playing Australia in a test at the Gabba while I am in Brisbane! Sweet, my schedule now include both world cup semis, the final, and a couple of days at the test match!

    Fly to Brisbane on a Saturday for the first semi, then to Sydney on Sunday morning for the second semi, then back to Brisbane midweek for the final, then home on Sunday after the final.

    busy schedule I know it's early but I don't know if we'll regain them we've lost so many players and few players in the Australian team are suspect Jacques and maybe Johnson plus there is no good candidate for the fourth bowling spot

    Dont bag the Wollongong boy :(, he'll come good, we should win the ashes, but no doubt the pommies will prepare some dodgy wickets suiting their swing bowlers (we we dont have many) :lol:

    our side is garbage compared to last time also I don't know if Hayden will even make it he's been injured alot lately without him I daresay I'd tip England to regain or at the very least a close series

    I reckon we need to take a pure swing bowler over there, i think Johnson has been touted as a swinger but he rarely gets much movement in internationals for some reason, from memory Hilfenhouse swings the ball a mile, but i havnt really been following the cricket in the off-season to know if he is test quality yet.

    What about Bracken he deserves another shot at test level he can bowl inswingers to the right handed English batsmen and cause trouble

    Hussey will save us he always seems to
    Symonds was sent home because he missed a team meeting and training session because he went on an early morning fishing trip can't blame him for wanting to catch some barra

    shaun marsh is on the way of making 100.

    by the way, its sort of weird how, in a 50 over match, u think that 170 or something is a really low score. But then just 30+ runs and it feels like a massive score :)
