The present Aussie team is at its peak. You cant go higher than this. It is possible that India is stronger than Windies today, but they are a young side and seem willing to learn. There is too much of politics in Indian cricket for its own good. The average age of the present Aussie team is 30+ and that of the Windies is 20+. Who knows what may happen four years from now. Thus far, no host team has ever won the World Cup and its the turn of the Land of Oz to prove this to be incorrect. Even the Yanks are playing in the 2007 World Cup.

Tendulkar's recovery making good progress
Wisden CricInfo staff - 20 May 2003

Sachin Tendulkar's recovery from his injured left hand is on track after a successful operation on it last month. Tendulkar injured a finger while attempting to catch a ball last November, and went to America for a minor operation to repair the damage.

And the good news for Indian fans is that, according to Dror Paley, the doctor who performed the operation, Tendulkar is now feeling no pain and no longer needs to wear a splint to support the finger. This means that he should be back in the Indian team for their next series, at home to New Zealand in October.

Paley also revealed that Tendulkar, who played through the World Cup with the injury, has not played any cricket since leaving hospital, but is keeping his eye in by playing golf.

Dunno where Gilchrist is. Ozzies seem to be testing some new players. Maher, Hauritz, Clarke. Hope it pays off. :confused:

120/3 and half the overs gone. This must rate as a chance for the WIndies.

Dunno. Symonds and Clarke appear fairly settled. If they keep going the Ozzies could post over over 270 perhaps. A somewhat dominant score.

258/4 seems a gettable target, but you don't know? Lets see hoew the bowlers do. Don't know this Hauritz guy, banana bender m'thinks, average over 26 in ODIs. I don't know if the Windies have seen him, if not could be a boon or a blessing:)
