Aussies must go down 0-3

Andrew Hilditch is useless. Aussie selectors are useless. Cricket Australia is useless.

No matter what the useless Indian offspinner Harbhajan Singh has to say about Aussie Cricket... those guys have helped raise the standard of the game in the last 20 years.

Allan Border, Dean Jones, Steve and Mark Waugh, McGrath, Warne, Healy, Gilchrist, and of course Ricky Ponting and Mathew Hayden, let me not forget Langer and Martyn - have all helped the game improve a great deal.

For most part of the last two decades the rest of the cricket nations have been trying to catch up with Australia.

After losing the first two Tests to South Africa, one can safely announce that the Champs claim to the number one position is almost over.

In Sydney, South Africa are favourites to deal the knock out punch and take the series 3-0.

What is wrong with Australian cricket?

I believe it starts with leadership. CA has not been able to provide the right leadership. The selectors are useless. The coach seems to have no idea on what the modern game is all about - he just expected a free ride on where Buchanan left the team. The sorry Aussie captain can't set a field or even get the right bowlers to bowl at the right time. The bowling coach, Trooley, can't help fast bowlers to learn how to reverse swing it. Freddie, Jones and other English blokes learned a lot from Trooley; so it must be a language barrier that stops the coach from communicating to the likes of Lee and others how to reverse swing it.

There is no way hayden should be playing in the Sydney Test. It is as bad as to expect your grandfather to climb a coconut tree. The man is well past it.

Ponting should have been kicked out of the captaincy after last year's Sydney Test or even much more before that. Ponting never got along well with Warne, proly the best cricket brain in Australia right now.

Look at what Warne achieved with the Jaipur team in IPL. As a player/coach and some imaginative field placing - Warne emerged the king of IPL.

The best cricket minds in Australia are all employed by TV channels and not by CA. Why so?

Ponting never had it in him to be a leader. Hayden wouldn't score 25 in grade cricket in his current form. Lee should go play guitar.

Marcus North should have been the replacement for Symonds. Michael Clarke the captain. Young Hughes should have opened with Katich.

Australia deserve to lose 0-3.
