A belatted Celebration of Australias World Cup Champions, could ANYONE beat us ? Ever ?
Ok that may be a stretch but just to relive how good was that ! It's our summer religion and only true "National" sport, how could any country expect to win regularly against us ?
And why an Australian player needs to use squash ball in his gloves for a better grip to hit big shots while it is not allowed under the rules?
Yes You are correct how could anyone beat you if you bat with a squash inside your gloves? Huh? Champions.
Sri lanka wasn't the champions BUT THEY ARE NOT THE CHEATERS!! O.K!! they are the real champions; Champions of our hearts.
do you know that.
your ancesters were marooned from British ships to Australia..
Famous .Nelson...then kicked your a**es
& ship dropped
if you want to know why ask your parents.
sorry to wake you up from your fantasy world~~~~
they would say the dark past of OZ.
it's a "Famous Secret" buddy.
Australia won it by cheating,
such as ,
1)some players used Banned medications.
2)some used banned equipments to boost bating.
3)People say ICC & Umpires bribed by Australian cricket .
sorry fans, i dont like to hide the truth.
What a fibber,..i mean
Lies? Ponting himself become lier when he defend Gilchrist
Fair ?..Nobody says OZ play fair
Drugs?..shane worne was banned for taking Drugs
Corruption?.. that's what Daryl Hair punished of
Bribery? they bribed MCC to clear Gilchrist
Rape?Rose Imerson the Australian Umpire is in the jail
History?OZ guys were shipdropped by British long ago.
Reason?it's also famous SECRET
plz buddy dont throw stones at others,
when you live in glass houses
1) Gilchrist never used the squash ball in the past and also in any of the other 10 games prior to the finals. Did the squash ball help?
2) Gilchrist was out of form and didn't score many runs in the whole World Cup tour apart from the finals. Did the squash ball provide Gilchrist the required assistance to bring him back to form?
3) The World Cup final was between Sri Lanka and Gilchrist (not Australia). All other in-form Australian batsmen were struggling to score except the out-of-form Gilchrist who had this squash ball to enhance his grip or did it?
Invincible - no
besides the generation of the so-called "invincible" Aussies is coming to an end & the new generation cannot keep up to what the seniors have achieved - we saw that in the NZ tour
Of course we can be beaten, as no side is invincible (nor should be). Our Champion team will undergo further changes as the "old war horses" continue to retire. We will just have to wait and see how the newbies perform and how our and if the opposition improves.
Nala sorry to dissapoint you mate but some of what you wrote is incoherent. (No surprise!)
Do you want a social history lesson of Australia?
Because your perception (as usual with everything ) is completely warped! By the way only 2% of Aussie are decended from convicts, who were merely a British underclass that committed such heinous crimes as stealing a loaf of bread to feed their starving families!
We are the second most multi cultural nation on earth(about 160 nationalities), nearly 10% are Asian ,another 20 + % of us were not born in Australia, a further 20% are non Anglo Saxon (me!!).
But guess what mate? We don't have the racist rioting to the extent of say the USA, Britain, or France. Racist civil wars like Sri Lanka! Nor religious ones! We have never gone to war and invaded another land, we were a founding member of the UN,the first nation to give women the vote(South Australia1892) and are one of the oldest democracies in the world! No matter what our anticedants we regard ourselves as Aussiie s first and foremost!!
A stable, welcoming diverse mish-mash of peoples that love their sport and perform extremely well!! We historically finish within the top 10 countries in Olympics (top 5 in the last 4 or so). Regularly trouncing nations 10-50 times our size. It's a clean healthy society without a culture of bribery and cheating you are so desperately repeating ad infinitum without basis!
Grow Up Man!!
Oh yes, Goodbye sports1234.com til next year.

Nakala you have some reading here..learn something from it!
Teams that hold their head high will bite the dust sooner than later.
The million dollar question is who will bring them down to earth.A team who can beat them in all conditions not only in home ground and favorable conditions but to beat them fair and square with out the help of poor umpiring and ICC.
