Aussie team worst ever: Oz mediaSydney: The Australian media has left no stones unturned in slamming the national Test team for their shambolic performance during their humiliating 4-0 series defeat against India, branding the current team as worst ever.

"It`s official. Australian cricket`s class of 2013 is the worst to tour India and the nation`s worst Test outfit in 34 years."

"That is the macabre reputation Michael Clarke`s battered troops will bring home after India completed a 4-0 series sweep of Australia in the fourth Test."

"Australia`s long and miserable Tour de Flop officially flat lined at 3.49pm on day three (of Delhi Test) when MS Dhoni hit the winning runs to secure a six-wicket victory at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium."

Badel further added, "And, despite Nathan Lyon`s superb 7-94 first-innings haul, now the recriminations begin as Australian cricket supremos conduct a post-mortem just 14 weeks away from the Ashes in England."

"While just one Australian team has won in India in the past 43 years, the magnitude of this series loss is underscored by Australia`s previous period of turbulence."

"In 1979, Graham Yallop presided over a 5-1 Ashes loss after the World Series Cricket revolution forced the expulsion of Australia`s best stars, ripping the heart out of the national team. This time, there are no excuses."

The Australian media singled out vice-captain Shane Watson for his poor performance throughout the series, urging the selectors to rethink over the all rounder`s place in the team.
