    Waugh - We're Unbeatable

    Steve Waugh boasted his Australian side was almost invincible after they crushed India by 180 runs in Melbourne to seal a series win over the tourists.
    Australia go into the final game of the three-match series with an unassailable 2-0 lead.

    "The cricket we've played this summer, I would give us a chance against any team," Waugh said, after the Aussies recorded their sixth successive Test win.

    "Someone will have to play really well to beat us. It's nice to set high standards and play to our full potential."

    The Indians, set a stiff fourth-innings target of 375, folded for 195 soon after tea on the fifth day at the MCG.

    The third and final Test starts at the Sydney cricket ground on Sunday, with Waugh's men favourites to complete their second clean sweep of the season after routing Pakistan.

    World champions in one-day cricket, Australia won the one-off Test in Zimbabwe in October, whitewashed Pakistan 3-0 earlier in the summer and beat India by 285 runs in the first Test at the Adelaide Oval.

    Australia's victory was set up by spin king Shane Warne, who won a personal battle of wits against India's captain and main batting hope Sachin Tendulkar.

    Tendulkar, who defied the Australian bowlers for three hours to make 52, was fooled by a flipper from Warne and trapped plumb lbw.

    It was the 30-year-old Warne's 351st Test wicket, leaving him just five short of surpassing Dennis Lillee as Australia's most successful Test bowler.


    Waugh is right.
