LIKE the late Kerry Packer, the Note loves nothing more than seeing a team of Aussies soundly defeating all and sundry at the nation’s most uniformly embraced sport – cricket. So it was with a tingle of patriotic pride reminiscent of the days of World Series Cricket that a correspondent reported a victory by Australia against a World XI. The scene was the leafy academic capital of Harvard, where an Australian contingent of 14 represented the biggest group of foreigners in a 160-strong student body engaging in Advanced Management Program there. With Wesfarmers Ltd’s execs absent – they have been a bit busy lately – MG Kailis Group chief Alex Kailis was the only representative from WA. Alex reckons it was a sweet victory, made even sweeter by the fact that the umpires and scorers were either English or Indian.
