Ashes player ratings matter for return leg

7 Aug 2013

Ranking Australia's batsmen

30 May 2013

Already this season he is the Sheffield Shield’s fourth leading run-scorer. He has been praised as one of the brightest young batting talents in Australia. He […]

Why Australia can win the Ashes

26 Jan 2013

I’m still undecided as to who will go on to win the Ashes. An away tour for the Ashes against a fantastic, balanced and experienced English side is always going to be among cricket’s greatest tests. However, I’m willing to be optimistic, fly in the face of articles written before mine and look for reasons […]
