Australia - lokho heck! Babé ulahlekelwe uchungechunge ngokumelene eNingizimu Afrika kulandela ezinye Ukulwa Nokufuna ehlala uyakufanelekela of England ngesikhathi okusemandleni (noma embi kunazo!)
Kuyinto Amazing ukubona ukuthi kwenzekeni kuye ecaleni lapho kufaniswa ithimba esidlulileko. Kukhona i-wad enkulu udoti emgqeni wamanje - Angikwazi ukucabanga noma ubani owayevuma ukuba wenze England ohlangothini ababedlala ekuhlolweni zokugcina ngokumelene South Africa. Kulungile babe ukulimala ezimbalwa, ikakhulukazi uMnyango bowling, kodwa izinto kuyofanele sishintshe.
Of course it was never going to be easy, losing the likes of Hayden, Langer, Gilchrist, Warne and McGrath but for Australia’s current malaise we must look to that golden era.
When those players were thrashing everyone that crossed their path the line up was almost always the same. Consistenty breeds success, or so the saying goes. And it’s an understandable ideal – i.e. ukuthi ngaso sonke isikhathi kufanele udlale side yakho esiqine.
But it also meant that those players waiting in the wings – including the current Aussie coach, Darren Lehmann – got very few opportunities (fewer than 30 ukuhlolwa 'Boof') to show what they could do and to experience the magic of test cricket.
That resulted in players not having the necessary experience when their chance came when the spine of the successful team retired.
Can Australia recover? Kuyobonakala ngokuhamba kwesikhathi ukuthi - kodwa kungase kuthathe isikhathi esithile ngaphambi kokuba kabusha thola ukuziphakamisa kwabo endala.
