    Your use of XYZ is very tiresome, and not everybody will know what sport you are talking about, so start 'If the Australian cricket team scores 100 runs ...'

    Also, we don't call a sports team "Yankees team"; we call it "the Yankees". If your audience may not know that the Yankees are a baseball team, write "the Yankees baseball team".

    See post #3 and add the word that Rover used between "If" and "Australian".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You give the strong impression that you do not read your posts carefully when you finish writing them. Please don't make people correct mistakes which you can correct yourself. You should read each post you write at least three times before submission.
