The Indians always get thrashed Down Under, just like the Aussies have never been able to win a test series in India. I think one of the primary reasons for this is the fitness factor. The Aussies are power hitters, they have the strength to hit a six in SCG. I faint simply looking at the photo of SCG (Sydney Cricket Ground), I dont know if the cricket teams fares any better..
Anyway I like to watch a good match.. and the only team that is capable of competing with Aussies in Australia are the South Africans.

I know a little bit about cricket, but I do know that this week australia won a game (or a "test") against India played in India. Wasn't this a test series?

It was tri-OneDay series..
And no doubt Australia is best team now in world.
South africa is good also but I think India and SA can be out at same level with Pak.

Then what's the difference between a "test series" and a "tri-OneDay" series?

I seem to vaguely remember a team with Kapil Dev in it winning Down Under.
Could it have been in New Zealand ?

Rugby, yes! I like Ronaldo and David beckahm
I went to Australia-Scotland quarter finals for the Rugby World Cup 2003 (even though I don't understand all the rules). I figured it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
back to my question, what's the difference between a "test series" and a "tri-OneDay" series?

I disagree.
Let me re-phrase :
The only team that is capable of beating Australia is the Australia A team in Australia or India in India.

Indians drew a series 1-1 in Aus. in 1979. Yeah Kapil was in it along with the famous four spinners.
Apart from that I remember only two series that India won ""abroad"".
The 1971 *sunny victory against the Windies (1-0) and 1986 against the David Gower's army (2-0).

1979 I didn't watch cricket. You must mean 1989 , Varun.
Though I kind of remember it much more recently than that. Possibly
a one day match.

Oh I should have avoided tri word.
AW tri-one day series the one day series in which 3 countries participate.
One day are played in one day and test match is played for 5 days. Now days because of fast pace of life people prefer one-day matches more than test matchs.

India wont win a test match against Austrlaia. The bext they could possibly do is to draw which I doubt as well.

Is this possible? Can we get 20 Aussie wickets? line-up where Gilchrist comes at no.7 ... Can India be consistent for 5 days against Aussies?

If India can play full 5 days of a test match that will be as good as a victory for us ... !!!

man of the series: tendulkar

Yeah this is possible ... very much possible

cricket is really a collaborative game.
if bowler collaborate with batsman,batsman will hit boundary or sixer.if batsman collaborate with bowler,batsman will turn out by giving a catch or be bowled!!.it's a test of collaborative ability of players.
better collaboration,better cricket.but it needs better planning before starting the match.that is called 'matchfixing'.
i wish the viewers also start collaborating to make cricket more wonderfull and enjoyable.

The test match will be over in 2-3 days! Good for me because I can save some power. Better than loosing on the last day!

I would rather say some of out guys will! Sachin, Dravid, Sourav & Laxman all have the talent. So, I expect some good innings from them.
But I wouldn't bet all of them delivering good at the same time to win a match! That's the problem

You can hit a six effortlessly, if you time the ball well!
No need for physical fitness (I'm not talking about the pinch-hitters here). The problem is that the Aussies bowl too well that you can't time your shots

Anyway I like to watch a good match.. and the only team that is capable of competing with Aussies in Australia are the South Africans.

...and the only team that was capable of competing. I'm not very confident now.
I would bet on the Kiwis rather!

Personally I see a 4-0 victory for Australia, unless the rain spoils the figures
If the Indians can manage a draw or 2, that will be a great achievement. If they win a match, it's a a jackpot. If they can win the series - well, it is match-fixing

India will also struggle to get into tri series final also.
Aussies will bury the Indian team in the Australian desert.

Good news:
Changes in ICC rules
Seeing the grossly unequal matches between India and australia, ICC has
formulated special rules in India - Australia matches. Here they are
1. Team Composition:
There shall be severe restrictions on the australian
team composition. Any player having the name Ponting, gilchrist, or hayden
cannot be part of the team. There can be no more that 9 players in the
australian team.
For the Indian team, there are a few relaxations: There shall be 25
members of the team, of them 11 will be batsmen, there will also be 10
bowlers, and 2 coke/pepsi representatives and 2 bookies.
2. Match duration: (india - 50 overs, Australia - 25 overs)
If india bats first, and as expected score lesser that 200 then the
indian score will be doubled. That is, a score of 180 becomes 360. If however
Indian team gets out for lesser that 150, then the indian score will be
320. of Score greater than 200 by indian team is not considered possible,
so no rules have been formulated in that case.
Australia will have to make the runs made by india in half the number of
overs that India gets. To save the valuable faces/ bodies of indian
players, dangerous hitting by any aurstalian batsman will not be allowed.
That is if an australian batsman hits a bowl by an indian bowler, the
speed of the bowl after it leaves the bat shall not be more than 20 kms
per hour. If that happens, 5 runs would be deducted from the australian
team score. If the australian batsman gets tempted by the delicious
indian bowling and hits a six, 25 runs shall be deducted from the australian
team score. Hitting 2 consecutive sixes means a ban for two matches.
3. Toss -- There shall be toss of course. If ponting wins the toss, then
india will bat, and if ganguly wins the toss, then also india will bat.
4. LBW -- no indian batsmen can be given out lbw under any circumstances.
However, when India is bowling, if by chance any bowler manages to hit
the pads of an australian batsman, he shall be given out lbw.
5. Bouncer rule--- any bowl of an australian batsman over knee high would
be considered a bouncer.
6. Missed catches win the matches--- For every two catches missed by an
Indian fielder (specially Laxman and Bhajji) one australian batsman
should be given out. And which batsman should be given out is all not in the
discretionary powers of the umpire but should be done in consultation
with the two batsmen on the pitch at that time (to ask them that who would
give the sacrifice). Otherwise critics may call it unjustified and fingers
will be raised on the umpires.
7. Field Restrictions--- Aussies should not be allowed to save more than
one four (or boundary) in every 10 overs. If they do so then one of the
players will be given a red card, and the team will then have to play
with 1 player less on the field. Again the decision is not to be taken by
umpires on their own but Captain of the Indian team should be allowed to
choose the one who should leave the ground.In case any australian fielder
is seen doing this regularly, inspite of warnings by umpires, he might
even be given a year long ban.....this is a serious offence when playing
against India in India.
