    Black Caps beaten yet again, Bracewell blames alignment of stars in his hemisphere

    Less than three months ago, New Zealand was targetting top spot on the ICC rankings table so that they, and not Australia, would be #1 and play in the Super Series as a team rather than play for a "Rest of the World XI". The December 26 tsunami was catastrophic not only for Sri Lanka but also for New Zealand Cricket's hopes of reaching the top spot.

    Things have not exactly been rosy against Australia with thrashings and controversy in the Twenty 20 game and the first three one-dayers.

    Could things get worse? Yes. How about 5-0? Australia were on target for a 5-0 win after yet another hopeless performance by the Kiwis. First the batsmen scored just 233 with lots of starts and not a single big score. Fleming, Astle, McMillan and Cairns got scores in the thirties and that really ensured that Australia didnt have a huge target to chase. Gilchrist and Katich got Australia off to a terrific start at 7.5 per over in the first 10 overs. Clarke, Martyn and Symonds did the honours as Australia romped home with 15 overs to spare! Jeff Wilson's return to one-day cricket has not been as comfortable as everyone thought it would be. He has now bowled 15 overs in two games conceding 8.3 runs per over with the solitary wicket to show.
