Australian one day team still looking for another win

Yesterday New Zealand rebounded from their disappointing tri-series in Australia to wipe the floor with a weakened Australian team by 10 wickets: 0/149 (from only 27 overs) against 148 all out (49.3 overs). The only pictures of the game I've seen were a few seconds on tonight's ABC TV news, so I can't really comment much (but will say that I much prefer the predominantly green costume used by Australia here to the canary yellow one which has made a comeback across the water).

What must be worrying the Australian management is the number of injuries to key players: Andrew Symonds, Michael Clarke and now Brett Lee are out of the present series and looking doubtful for all or part of the World Cup. The middle order batting cupboard is starting to look understocked, while the bowlers need some better performances in the remaining two games to bolster their collective reputation.
