Australia Cricket Has a Great Success RateBy
Australian cricket is one the rise these days and one of the main reasons for this is their immense success on the cricket field. This success of the Australian team has taken some beating owing to the recent defeats that they have suffered at the hands of arch rivals New Zealand and England. Australia cricket has given many world class players to the game of cricket,the major among them being Sir. Donald Bradman. Cricket as a game is very popular and the fans are very passionate both about the game and also about the Australian cricket players that represent their country on the field
The Australian cricket team is one of the most competitive teams in the world and of late they have been wining all the major tournaments including The Ashes. This is one of the most fiercely and keenly contested tournaments among the England and Australian cricket team. This year the Australian team won back the Ashes trophy from England who had won it the last time. The Ashes consists of five test matches played alternatively each year in England and Australia. Craze for the game is huge in these parts of the world and because the teams are very good, the public has a good time watching the matches.
The Australian cricket team has a very balanced side and this is one reason of their huge success over the years. The Australian cricket Captain Ricky Ponting seems to be in the best form of his life. Last year and this year, he has had a tremendous amount of success and all this has helped him in becoming one of the best batsmen of the world. The Australian team has the best bowlers of the world in their line up in the form of Bret Lee and Glen Mc Grath. When a team has world class batsman like Ponting, Hussey, Michael Clark and bowlers like Mac Grath and Lee the team is bound to do well.
Until recently the Australian Cricket team was the number 1 ranked team in the world. They held this position for a long time and this is all due to the good cricket that they play against their opponents. Many teams have tried to win against the Aussies, but no team had been successful. Till date they have won three world cup titles, the most by any team that is playing in the world cup 2007. This time the Australian Cricket team and the fans as well will be aiming to win their fourth world cup title.
Earlier the Aussies were the favorites to win the world cup, buy due to the recent defeats that they have suffered they have not only lost their number 1 ranking but have also opened up opportunities for the other teams to win the world cup. As things are progressing it seems that it will no longer be a cakewalk for the Australian cricket team, they will really have to perform out of their skins this time. This will be the last world cup for Aussie player Glen Mac Grath and surely his team would like to give him the best send off and that will be by winning the world cup.
