Sweet 16?

Australia haven't lost a home series since this one. What I find interesting about that series is that the Australian team definitely appears to be at a moment in transition there. You see some familiar names from the 1990s mixed in with a few from the 1980s. Suppose the Ockers lose tomorrow, in the same 'season' as dropping a series in India. You'd really have to admit that we might be at a similar moment for this Australian side. In five years' time how many of the current Australians will still be in the team? If the answer is less than five, I suspect this wouldn't be the last series Australia lose at home for another 16 years.
