A solid example of why Kiwis get the shits with Aussies:
"The fact is that Australia have won only one of the past four series, losing in India and at home to South Africa before beating South Africa away and losing in England."
~~ Shane Warne
- India: loss
- New Zealand: win
- South Africa: loss
- South Africa: win
- England: loss
Warnie's not the only one to say/write that. (Maybe he is getting back at Mark Richardson.) Jamie Panderamjam wrote the same in Wednesday's Fairaxes:
Players now have to come to terms with what the fans already know; that decades of dominance are over and they no longer qualify as the world's best following a third series defeat from their past four.
And I've heard it numerous other times during the last week.
Two more overlookers.
If it isn’t apparent that Australia is going through a rebuilding phase, the fact that we have lost three of the last four series should make it abundantly clear.
Jesper Fjeldstad (taking a break from the biathlon, luge and downhill curling):
Nielsen, dubbed "Teflon Tim" after much of the fallout from the Ashes debacle failed to stick to him, has a healthy winning percentage of 46 per cent, but has seen his team lose three of its past four series.
