Are Australia playing too many internationals?

Are Australia playing too many internationals?

18 hours ago

I am known in cricketing circles as cricket mad. In his foreword to my book Cricket Conflicts and Controversies Greg Chappell described me as “a self-confessed cricket tragic”. I can watch cricket all day, not just internationals but also Sheffield Shield, grade cricket, even children playing with tennis balls in the park. But this year […]

For a dead rubber, the Sydney Test is creating a lot of interest. Yesterday I went to the SCG to see the teams do net practice. Many were present just to watch the rivals having a hit, as bowlers tested them with bouncers. CATCH UP ON THE LATEST CRICKET HIGHLIGHTS The most popular among them […]

Did you notice? The Brisbane Test last week appeared as if Australia was playing Australia. India bowled like Australia, with three quickies trying to imitate Mitchell Johnson and Brett Lee. Many of them sledged like Australians. Umesh Yadav and Varun Aaron bowled at around 140 to 144 kilometres per hour, with the tall Ishant Sharma […]

Better batting in Brisbane than BBL

Better batting in Brisbane than BBL

20 Dec 2014

As I watched the third day of the Brisbane Test, I wondered whether I was watching a Test match or a Big Bash League hit-out. The second session was most entertaining when skipper Steven Smith, Mitchell Johnson and the tail comprising Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon and debutant Josh Hazlewood went ballistic. Australia were struggling at […]
