transition worries

Harsha Bhogle believes that the Australian team goes beyond a couple of losses, but wonders- like many of us- if the transition from the older members of the team to new ones is precariously close to being out of hand.

They will be hoping to stagger the release of their older generation a little better this time. If they wait till the World Cup of 2007, and that in itself might be an optimistic date, they run the risk of having to use a broom.
Mohd Ashraful, fresh from his heroics in the Natwest Series, has credited his time in the Indian domestic setup for honing his skills. Also, SauravGanguly's words seem to have done some good.

Ashraful believes that his batting has become more aggressive due to three reasons: the confidence he gained during his stay in India, the huge expectations back home and, most importantly, his long chat with Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly this year.
