In the incompetent darkness that almost reduced the World Cup final to a farce, a very silvery lining was visible... once the Cup had been held aloft by the...deserving Australians, cricket could once again find, with a newer look, its old self. This... carnival in the West Indies was always expected to be a season of exits... Alas, no one could have predicted how cruel some of the exits turned out to be (Bob Woolmer primarily). Or the ludicrous hysteria that accompanied others (primarily India)...
As the other teams go about the task of repair and re-enforcement, Australians have done the game this great service. As India and Pakistan seek new coaches and work to a new equilibrium between pampered experience and inexperienced youth, as South Africa and New Zealand wonder why they keeping failing themselves in the home stretch, as England and Sri Lanka work out the gap between competence and excellence, Australia’s success had reduced the scope for excuses.
