Aussies clean sweep Super Series ODI's

    Brett Lee and Shane Watson decimated the World XI's elite batting line-up to power Australia to a 156-run victory and a Super Series one-day clean sweep at Docklands stadium on Sunday.

Does Australia deserve the title of the best one-day team in the world? I think three comprehensive victories definitely underscores the fact that as a team Australia are the best in the world. Sunday's victory was even more satisfying for me because even though it was a dead rubber the guys still played all out for a win. The partnership between Hussey and Watson was superb and provided one of the best highlights when Hussey hit the ball into the Telstra Dome roof!! I think Richie Benauds comment summed it up beautifly, he said "The World XI were thoroughly mauled out there."

Roll on the Super test in Sydney, hopefully the World XI can find their batsmen so the test lasts out the full six days.
