Captain's Diary 2008: A Season of Tests, Turmoil and Twenty20
It was one thing for the Aussie cricket team to become world champions; staying No. 1 is a whole new ball game.Australia's cricketers have never had a more demanding workload than what they faced in 2007-08. From September '07 to August '08, Ricky Ponting's Test and one-day teams travelled to South Africa for the inaugural Twenty 20 world championship, to India for a one-day series, play Sri Lanka, New Zealand and India (sometimes controversially) at home, cancelled their trip to Pakistan, and then head to the West Indies for more Tests and one-dayers, and finally meet Bangladesh in Australia in mid-winter.The Australians began this adventure as clearly the best team in the world. Ponting was universally regarded as the finest batsman in the game, but he was without some of his most famous team-mates, who had retired at the end of the previous season.The challenge for the Australian captain and his team to stay at the top of the world game has been exciting, but also as tough and gruelling as anything they have faced in recent times.
