    What not to do when playing Australia

    I wrote this in November 2006 after England's ICC Champions Trophy game against Australia.
    Risque as it may sound, the one lesson that each and every team which played against Australia in the ICC Champions Trophy needs to learn is "When you've got Australia by the b@lls, you hold on!"
    Australia give so few opportunities to teams to get into a position of advantage. Opponents really cannot afford to let those chances go by.

    'The Great B*st@#ds' will try and get through every single situation they come up against, such as getting vital partnership-breakers at the end of the day at Sydney & at Perth in India's first innings, clawing their way out of a 61/5 mess and attacking with so much unbelievable abandon and getting through the top order despite conceding a 118 run lead and possibly preventing India from running away with the game today.
