Australia sensationally took a 5-0 lead in their ODI series against Englandat Trent Bridge yesterday their Captain Ricky Ponting was the star, he smashed a century at better than a run a ball.
The tourists now have a golden opportunity to win the series 7-0 and reclaim the number 1 ranking for ODI Cricket should Australia achieve this remarkable feat, it would surely serve as consolation for what has been a difficult tour of England.
The Australian's suffered an embarrassing 1st round exit in the Twenty20 World Cup and then lost the Ashes 2-1 in an epic series.
While the Ashes is an event which carries a lot of history and tradition there is no doubt that Test Cricket appears to be fading Twenty20 and One Day Cricket is what has captured the imagination of new fans globally.
With this in mind there is no doubt that a 7-0 ODI Series would be a far greater achievement than simply winning the Ashes.
If Australia can maintain their recent form then they have every chance of upsetting the Betting Oddsand claiming a series whitewash.
