Australian Dominance Declining in Cricket?

Has Australia’s dominance over world cricket stated declining? I know there are many who already started seeking answer of this question. To be honest, there is no clear-cut answer of it. It is pretty much certain that Australia is not anywhere close to where they were even couple of years back. Following the retirements of a number of great cricketers like Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Australia is yet to get the players who are capable of fitting the their shoes.

Australia lost test series in India last year, was beaten by South Africa at home in front of the home crowd, and now, South Africa defeated Australia in the ODI series too. Apparently, Australia’s dominance is fading away, but it is difficult to say, to what extent their dominance is decreasing. I think, they need to focus on grass root level where they put less focus over the last one decade, even though Australian team was dominating world cricket. So, searching new talent is very important for Australian at this moment.
