Aussie injury list increases as well

It isn’t only England who a suffering with injuries ahead of the World Cup, Ashes opponents Australia are also nursing their wounds ahead of their flight to the sub-continent.
The most recent double blow came when Mike Hussey and Nathan Hauritz were both ruled out of the entire tournament.

Hussey suffered a serious hamstring injury during the one-day series against England that resulted in surgery. Hauritz also went under the knife after dislocating his shoulder while fielding during the one-day game in Hobart on January 21. Despite returning to the nets he was deemed not fit enough to last the pace of the 11-week long tournament and was left out. It will be upsetting for anyone who was looking forward to keeping track of the livescore during the competition.

Shaun Marsh and Xavier Doherty are the natural back-up choices for the sidelined duo but as they are carrying knocks of their own the Australian selectors need to look further.
In the end Callum Ferguson and Jason Krejza – who only made his One-Day debut at Perth on Sunday – have been called up as replacements.

Though not all of these injuries can be put down to fatigue the sheer number of games played during the winter tour has surely had an impact and it’s sad that fans of live cricket scores will miss out on seeing some of the game’s best players.

England, who were on tour for more than 100 days down under, have injury doubts over seven players and many believe the punishing schedule, most notably a post-Ashes seven-game one-day series that involved eight internal flight – is to blame.

Those players who are fit will only have three days back in England before jetting off to India for the tournament, which begins on February 19th.

If both England and Australia struggle to make an impact they may cite the series just gone as a factor and will hopefully raise the issue the next time the fixture planners gather round the table.

    What the authors of Rosetta Stone are forgetting is that you are most probably no longer a child, let alone a baby. ‘natural’ way of learning the language may be engaging at the beginning, but in the long-term, this is not an effective way of learning Japanese. We’re already used to complex grammar structures and our syntactical knowledge is infinitely more advanced than that of a child, meaning that we can take many shortcuts when studying a foreign language as many of the important conceptual links have already been made. Rosetta stone, to a certain extent, neglects this.
