Melbourne: Australia cricket captain Steve Waugh predicted his side would not only win the second test against India starting tomorrow but go on to complete a 3-0 series victory.
Waugh, whose team have won their last five tests in a row including the first test against India in Adelaide a fortnight ago, insisted his comments were not bravado but rather a reflection of the difference between the two sides.
''There's a fine line between being confident, backing yourself and having people see you as being arrogant,'' Waugh said. ''Generally I consider myself to be pretty icy in my assessments and if I think we are good enough to win this series 3-0, I'll say it. It's not a bluff.''
