Summer ends on a high

The Australian cricket team's summer ended on a positive note after the one run win over New Zealand in the Twenty20 match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

In fact the summer started quite well with a win over New Zealand in a two match Test series but South Africa came and spoiled all that by winning both the Test series and the one day series.

South Africa's rare double over Australia did not surprise me that much but I expected more of a fight from Australia.

Now Australia will tour South Africa starting from the end of this month and I will not be surprised if the hosts win all the matches.

Stuart Clark is not going and so once again Australia will be relying on a very inexperienced bowling line-up and bowling out the Proteas twice is going to be very difficult indeed.

In the batting department the problem has been that if captain Ricky Ponting fails nobody has been able to steer the team to safety and I am hoping that Michael Clarke will be able to step up to get some decent results.

On a positive note I hope the South African tour will prepare Australia for the Ashes.
