We are halfway through BBL05. It’s a new experience for myself, having not been involved in cricket in Australia for a number of years, so to be afforded the opportunity to coach the Adelaide Strikers is exciting and a challenge I am relishing.
ROAR EXCLUSIVE: It sure has been a surreal two weeks. It began when Andrew Strauss mentioned publicly that I was a person that the ECB was interested in speaking to about the vacant England coaching post.
My first memory of the Australian Cricket Team when I was involved was the 1996 World Cup. We had been having a fantastic season as a team for South Australia and I had been amongst the wickets as well.
I have a confession to make. I really enjoyed the ‘sledging’ or ‘chirping’ during this series. Now before I get shouted down from the rooftops, I would like to give you my take on it.
The Boxing Day Test is an institution, and I’m not just talking about the cricket match either.
The first Test played at Adelaide Oval was a fantastic match. It was always going to be an incredibly emotional match following the tragic passing of Phillip Hughes.
