    Not exactly in the flush of youth

    Amidst the recrimination and soul-searching following the loss of the Ashes, Steve Waugh urged against wholesale changes. Coach John Buchanan's own contract is up for review since his current contract lasts until October 2005. My guess is that he will either be sacked or his role will be diluted through the inclusion of specialist coaches for batting, fielding, bowling etc.

    You'd think the discussion was happening in England, India or Pakistan, not Australia! Aussies don't panic, do they? But should they? Perhaps yes, when you consider that their reserves side currently playing in Pakistan has at least three chaps older than 30 and seven older than 25.

    Hey Jagdish & Ganesh,

    First of all would like to say this is a nice blog, this is my first visit thanks to anti's blog..

    The aussie's have a different outlook to the sports cenario of theirs, especially cricket. They do panic but I really don't think they would be worried so much as they did when they lost to South Africa and New Zealand, since that was a home series. This having their loss to England in England's home won't hurt them so much as much as it did the earlier time which lead to the sacking of Steve Waugh from the ODI team.

    'The' point here is a comman hassle faced by every team. It's like the high's and low's. It's got more to do with the gravity funda- whatever goes up has to come down. Since the Aussies have been dominating the cricket scene for nearly about 10 years now they certainly have their fall outs and that includes the coach too. I am sure that they don't follow this age funda too so for them age is no bar.

    Let me give you one inside view about their cricket. My friend lives there who played with me & cricketers who played with me have been there (Deepak chowgule,Udit patel, etc) for the Border Gavaskar Scholarship to Australian Cricket Academy, so what I am saying is something real. It seems they have such good bench strength, which could be made available off anytime by croping upon the international arena and could still be the best. That is something which any other country lacks and would want to have. For example India would take time to adjust if Sachin, Rahul & Sehwag retire together all of a sudden.

    Infact I have written a comment in anti's post(superstarksa.blogspot) which spoke about cricketers lives..
