    Default Are Aussies not invincible anymore?

    Australia have lost their place at the top of the world one-day international rankings after New Zealand batted superbly to register a thrilling five-wicket victory over their rivals in Auckland on Sunday.

    The home side successfully chased down Australia's record Eden Park total of 336 for four with eight balls to spare to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in their Chappell-Hadlee series and condemn the Australians to a fourth straight defeat.



    South Africa, who beat Pakistan 3-1 in a recent home series, have become the first team to replace Australia at the top of the rankings since they were introduced in October 2002.

    The Australians looked to have rebounded from their humiliating 10-wicket loss in Wellington on Friday after posting a massive total with stand-in captain Mike Hussey blasting 105 and Brad Hodge 97 not out.

    However, New Zealand reached their victory target in the 49th over after Ross Taylor made 117 and Peter Fulton 76 not out.

    Default If it was not Australia?

    Just think for a minute if the team that is now visiting Newzealand were not Austaralia.Just suppose it was india and Rahul dravid was absent, Srisanth was injured, Tendulkar was also injured and Yuvraj was caiptaning the side.Can u expect such a side to win a series.Such Indian side can never ever post a total of 300 or over.Now compare it with Australia.And the rest is common sense.
