Now let me go on to say this:

Whichever team needs to beat Australia, must find out a way to *ritually* break the link that this Australian team has to the source where it's drawing its power from.

The only team to do it successfully was New Zealand and England during the Ashes.

During WWII to counter the Nazi sign of Swastika, the allies found another sign to *ritually* counter the Swastika and that was the V.

This was proposed by the then 33rd degree freemason Alistair Crowley, who suggested the V sign to the allies that is a *ritual-based* sign to cut through the Swastika.

Whatever demonic source of strength the Australian team has will have to be broken first.

As most people expected, the Aussies won. But, the Lankans put up a good fight. I thought they pulled the innings back well after the initial onslaught by Gilchrist.
Jayasuriya and Sangakkara were slow at the beginning, but, accelerated well later on.
Still, another name for Australia is "Professsionalism". They are just a magnificent team who play to win. Always. Well done.
Finally, Goodbye to the world's best paceman, Glenn McGrath. It's been an honour to have you playing.

Actually what Australia has done is to show the other teams a mirror.

They have constantly played upon the insecurities of the other players & teams. Like they have a firm grip on the jugular of the other players and by correlation those teams.

The Asian teams (with exception of Sri Lanka) have had senior players who have for a long time hidden behind various alibis to cover their weakness in technique and in their game.

When they play against Australia, they just expose these weaknesses.

Against Sri Lanka, they attacked they didn't allow their major bowlers to dominate and then when they felt on more surer grounds attacked those bowlers *with conviction* and confidence.

Even bats move better when you think you know the weaknesses of your opposition and there are no mi****s.

Supernatural help came their way, because they rarely lost an important toss and forced teams into a corner right from the first ball.

To shake off their *control over other teams fears* needs a solution from the world of rituals.

To defeat the Australians they need to be outpsyched.

Greg Chappell's views on Indian Cricket have now been magnified.

Ohh how right he was. This will be a belated realization in the coming days.

Eh heh heh. There were some reasons why I wanted Australia to win:

1. I am an 'Australian cricket team' fan
2. Sri Lanka beat us in the preliminaries
3. Sri Lanka beat us under crappy conditions in 1996

LOL!

Superb innings from Gill. Innings of his life. Iam really surprised at the way Aussies took the last ten overs in which the scoring rate was below than their innings run rate. That too after Gilli laid such an wonderful platform.

Other than Gilli ,none of the other australian batsmen were dominant . Watson failed to do his job while trying to game on his earlier successful tactic, but miserably failed.

Excellent show by Lankans too. Decent performance expect the no.of extra's they bowled and the bye's conceeded on it

One record still stands,the mighty aussies could not break.

Thanks to Lasith Malinga dismissing Mathew Hayden before his 50, Sachin Tendulkar still holds the record for the highest number of runs in a WC tournament.

Well done aussies,you are truly a notch above all the other teams.

After watching such an awe-inspiring display of batting, how can one even THINK of Sachin Tendulkar?

I wish Hayden got that record - he deserved it.

Don't think of Sachin Tendulkar today, get the one who has scored the record breaking runs then. And also Sachin is the only player who had scored 500 and above runs in world cup twice.

Sachin would still be the hero in many hearts, if he had announced his retirement in 2001 0r 2002 from one day and continue playing tests till 2005-06

One option left is repair the damage done by himself by trying to score freely for next couple of series otherwise accept the reality and move away
