    Let's hope we can put on a decent run chase again... :)

    Yes, a decent run chase up to 300 runs, then get out. :)

    Hayden: 181 - highest individual score for an Australian batsman in an ODI.

    And apparently 2 runs off of equally the record. :eek:


    We scored 5/346, and in it there was a world-record 26 sixes. I'm getting this from the live scoreboard people at baggygreen. ;)

    Wish I could have seen it. :(

    I don't really care if we lose this one, though it would be good to be #3.

    This is ridiculous. We're going to have to be much better at containment bowling if we're to win at the world cup. Totals around 350 should be defended 90%+ but we just can't seem to do it.

    You know what I'm looking at? 27 extras. What's with that?



    I know, but it's nothing compared to seeing a six being blasted out of the park. ;)

    There were a few leg-byes that went to the boundary. But the (lack of) NZ byes is telling.

    You have got to be kidding me... and here I was thinking we could actually win this game, foolish, foolish me.


    Anyone know how many 6s were hit all together?

    "For those interested in stats, today's match had 26 sixes - yes, 26 - to equal the record set during that 438 match at Johannesburg last year."- cricinfo

    Oh, hey, congrats on the Aussie record knock by Hayden. :p



    Edit: lol @ Australia

    From what I'm reading, that first bowl of the last over from Bracken was absolutely ludicrous.


    R_P, yeah, my quote earlier about there being 26 sixes is actually wrong. It's what the commentator said, but when I looked at the scoreboard I actually only count 16 sixes from the Aussies; 10 of which were from Hayden

    I count 10 from NZ... so that actually makes 26. lol.


    The record here says that Australia did 22 wides. It was probably some of them that went to the boundary.


    Edit: Well jp already mentioned the sixes. :p

    Australia look weak.

    We(India) are going to win the World Cup.

    Not the ideal buildup for the World Cup for you lads.

    I do know your side was depleted, but then again we were without our two best bowlers, Bond & Vettori, and our in-form all rounder Oram.

    That's very true, jp. I was actually looking for Oram in the previous match when you beat our 300+ score then and couldn't find him. It looks like a majority of our side rests currently on Ponting. o_O

    As far as build up to the World Cup goes, you could look at it two ways. Yes, not good, we're out of form. Or; great, we've been woken up from our 'invincible' position. Now let's belt 'em good.

    Yeah, in all honesty it sure makes the world cup prospects a real lottery! :D

    You. Have. Got. To. Be. Kidding. Me. [face_plain]

    Something has seriously gone wrong with this side. Everyone used to say that our strength was our depth outside our top 11. From these last few weeks that theory has been put to death.

    I don't know whether it's the injuries, or the coach is doing something wrong, or there's an attitude problem with in the squad. Whatever it is, it has to be fixed now. The only saving grace is that this is happening prior to the world cup, and not during it.

    We'll see how we go when we have our full squad. Suffice to say, however, taking unfit players (Symonds, Lee etc.) to the world cup is fraught with danger.
