You think SA has strange selection policies! We've apparently done little/nothing to plan for life after Warne/McGrath. Lee was always a little bit over-rated (IMO), we haven't got a decent spinner, and some of the pacemen are highly suseptible to injury. Added to that, I think practically everyone in the test side (except Michael Clark) are over 30, I think we'll struggle to keep pace with SA and India.
I really enjoyed the test series, mainly because it was played in such good spirit. The last series against India was awful - our boys have a reputation for being poor sports (not undeserved), but the Indians are awful. Maybe all the money and power have gone to their heads.
