The Australian Test team is too good:
Yesterday’s events re-emphasised how no one country can come close to Australia at present … Australian captain Ricky Ponting could only agree that such exercises in shooting fish in barrels do not bode well for the welfare of Test cricket.
What to do? The Australian proposes a handicap system:
The most obvious solution would be to give opposing teams a head start, based on a sliding scale: say 200 runs for the bottom-ranked Bangladeshis, scaling down to 50 runs for the halfway-decent English. On a similar principle, we could offer our opponents anywhere between one and five extra batsmen and fielders.
Maybe we should force all the Australians to bat left-handed. The ones who don’t already (Langer, Hayden, Lehmann, Gilchrist) that is. Perhaps Harry Hutton, a skilled problem solver and diplomat, can work something out.
