There has been a lot of debate about the recent ODI series against South Africa, and specifically about the make-up of the Australian squad’s seam attack.
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.
