Its a miracle to see the world cup champions who retained thier pride with spot no.1 over a decade in 50 overs ODI matches are not able to qualify even the first round of 20-20 world cup 2009. Aussies were considered to be the fittest team among all as some of them had rejected IPL offer to improve their fitness. I think its good for aussies to bring back their retired players who played a main role in victory of IPL teams. But still Ricky Ponting stays positive and they looking forward for the ashes against England. In a press meet, he said "I won't be focussing on any of the negative stuff that happened here in the last couple of days. It's about looking at the positives we created in our Test team over the last few months. I'd love to think that none of this would linger around. It's about creating an environment that everyone wants to be a part of when they get here. The excitement and atmosphere at the start of the Ashes is going to be tremendous, and if we can caught up a little bit in that then I'm sure there won't be any negatives hanging around from the last few games". Lets see their performance in test matches but anyway they are not the heroes of 20-20 format.
