Australia in Champions Trophy 2009

For the last few years, Australian cricket team lost that touch of invincibility. Even in Ashes, they looked shaky in the test series. However, they turned around in the ODI series against England and demolished England. Now, it seems that team Australia is completely in form for ODI form of cricket. They are hoping that they would win the title of Champions Trophy 2009.

The tournament starts tonight, while defending champion Australia plays its first match on Saturday against the West Indies.
Also in the group are India and Pakistan.
With most teams already in South Africa, Australia and England will be late arrivals.
''In an ideal world, it would be nice to be there with all the other teams and get a game under your belt,'' Ponting said.
''Every other side has played a practice game, but we've known for a long time this is how it is so we've had one eye on our preparation for the Champions Trophy the last few weeks as well.''

I don’t think that Australia will win Champions Trophy Title. I think that India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa are the hot favorites.
