    Australia strategically lost, now they're laughing at England for progressing

    It's funny how Shane Warne's brain works. I daresay quite a few other Aussie cricketers (current and former), cricket administrators and cricket commentators/writers would have also thought along similar lines after Australia were bundled out of the T20 World Cup.

    Although Australia will still be hurting, this could be a blessing in disguise for the Ashes. They will be able to have a short break to get this out of their systems and then tick along with their practice out of the spotlight before the warm-ups. They have one focus now, no distractions before July 8 in Cardiff.
    So let's see how the column would have read in a few other situations.

    6 sledge(s):


    Used by Sri Lankan batsman Tillakaratne Mudiyanselage [TM] Dilshan where the batsman goes on one knee and scoops the ball right over the batsman's and wicket keeper's heads with the intention of hitting a 4 or 6. Became internationally famous during the ICC World Twenty20 in England during June 2009.

    The Dilscoop travels straight and should be contrasted with the Paddle Scoop which travels towards fine leg.

    The term Dilscoop was coined by Sri Lankan - Canadian lawyer Mahendra Mapagunaratne who also coined the term Carrom Ball.

    Australia may be licking their wounds after being knocked off the T-20 championship but they have something going for them even before the Ashes series begins.It has been reported that John Buchanan is set to coach the England team for the Ashes.That in my view gives Australia a good kickstart as whatever Buchanan has touched in recent years has turned to ashes {pun intended}.So one can expect English cricket to be cremated again and the ashes carried to Australia.
