Well, that was sadly predictable. But, my, Australia said they were going all out for the win, and they didn't make any mistake in doing so. They may have tinkered with their batting order, but sending Hussey and Symonds for some practice proved a good decision. Thanks for joining us today, do return tomorrow when New Zealand take on South Africa.
