From the experts

The low down from those in the know
Is Williamson a ‘flat-track bully’ too?

A superb bowling display has placed Australia in a wonderful position from which to win this first Test against New Zealand. Yet the Kiwis are not as down and out as the scoreboard suggests, with a fragile Australian tail within sight.

Give Pocock a year off and develop Hooper, McMahon and Butler

Brendon McCullum disappoints me, but not for the usual reasons

I’m sorry, but when it comes to attaining a satisfactory level of Trans-Tasman tension, we’re going to need more than the lame brouhaha of Mitch Marsh’s drop-punt dismissal if we’re to generate requisite friskiness.

No Danger, no matter for Adelaide

There’s a seminal line in the movie Moneyball: “We need 38 home runs, 120 RBIs and 47 doubles to replace.” Abuse of the English language aside, the brass at the Adelaide Crows likely reprised this phrase in October last year, except they had 21 goals, 165 clearances and 350 contested possessions to replace.

Hazlewood the key for Australia against Kiwis

There’s no Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Johnson or James Pattinson. As Australia start their two-Test series against New Zealand today, it is relative rookie Josh Hazlewood who shapes as the tourists’ most important bowler.
