Vantage point

Thursday, November 27, 2003

Just a thought. The Aussies have made a rapid scoring rate their strength. Has someone, in the past 2 years, tried to bowl a negative line to them? You know, what Hussain's England tried in India in 2001-02 to a limited degree of success. Would they get frustrated at being denied opportunities of scoring?

It seems to me like since they lost to India in 2001, nobody has made the Australians think too much. They just play their natural game without too many mental impediments. Maybe a tactic like this would make them think, try something different.

Is this tactic worth a shot?
