Ben on...Australia's weakness

So Australia is dominating the Commonwealth Bank Series. No surprise. Still, there has no been no sense so far that they are going to break any records in this series. In fact, they didn't look all that comfortable chasing down 155 and 218 in their last two games.

Perhaps that is a hint to their vulnerability. Maybe it is chasing low scores that is Australia's weakness. I suggest that a winning score against Australia might be 150 or less. In light of this, McMillan's valiant innings yesterday might not have been all that helpful a contribution.

We should select both Marshalls and fly Jamie How over then. That should do the trick nicely.

I think you're right - some a frustrating fielding performance by the Kiwi's and general ordinary cricket by England are masking things a bit - Australia are not the sure-things for the World Cup that everyone thinks - one of these days, Hussey won't be able to save us!
