Will Australia go the way of the West Indies?
Just watched the last rites of a one sided Test where India have thrashed West Indies by an innings and 15 runs: 7/631 dec (Laxman 176*, Dhoni 144, Dravid 119, Gambhir 65) v 153 (Ojha 4/64, Yadav 3/23) & 463 (Darren Bravo 136, Samuels 84, Barath 62, Yadav 4/80).
Will Australia, who like West Indies, will be forced to field a changed (weakened?) team - Khawaja for Marsh, Cummins for Harris - be able to rise from the humiliation of T1? One hopes, but...
