Australian Cricket Fixtures

The Australian Cricket team opens their season with a Tri-series in Zimbabwe against the host nation and South Africa in late August.

The squad will then travel to the Middle East to play a tour series against Pakistan consisting of one T20, three ODIs, two Test matches and a four-day tour match against Pakistan A.

The 2014/15 Australian Test summer will consist of a four-Test series against India, with matches to be held in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

Perth will miss out on hosting a Test for the 2014/15 season due to the scheduling requirements of the ICC Cricket World Cup beginning in February 2015, for which Australia is a co-host with New Zealand.

Australia will host South Africa for a limited overs series in November 2014, as well as India and England in a limited overs tri-series in January 2015, in the lead up to the World Cup commencing on February 14, 2015.

Is Steven Smith Australia’s answer at number 3?

by , 22 Nov 2014

In a recent interview querying Australia’s possibilities for their troublesome three position, Australian captain Michael Clarke declared “Steve Smith is a rising star, but he’s not a Test No. 3 just yet.” One can laud Clarke tempering expectation on the young tyro, and the need for patience, but the other side of this are the […]

With another cricket season well under way, the problem of which of the crickets deserve our eyeballs rears its ugly head.

The message is muddy but the outcome is clear: If Clarke’s fit he should play

The message is muddy but the outcome is clear: If Clarke’s fit he should play

by , 21 Nov 2014

On Thursday morning, Australian cricket team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris explained to the waiting media that Michael Clarke will not miss the whole Test series against India, nor is in danger of missing the World Cup due to his current injury. “[Clarke’s injury] is not that dramatic that he’s going to miss the whole summer.” However, […]

by , 21 Nov 2014

Form has Josh Hazlewood in contention for a Test debut, while fitness has the 23-year-old convinced he is ready for cricket’s big stage.

No Clarke but no surprises for the Gabba Test

No Clarke but no surprises for the Gabba Test

by , 20 Nov 2014 Video

Australia copped a hiding in the two Tests against Pakistan in the UAE, but there is no chance they will suffer the same fate at home against India. The venue has often determined the outcome of Australia-India series as much as the playing personnel, with the home side in the last two series claiming the […]

Doug Walters picks his best ever World XI

Doug Walters picks his best ever World XI

by , 20 Nov 2014 Video

Doug Walters was the ultimate batting excitement machine when he burst onto the Test scene in 1965 at 19 years of age. Cricket lovers got an earlier taste of the Dungog-born all-rounder when he debuted for NSW against Wes Hall at 17, helping himself to a fearless 50. He tripled that at the Gabba on […]

Harris: Lyon is our number one

by , 20 Nov 2014

Rather than give himself a rap, Queensland quick Ryan Harris has opted to push Nathan Lyon’s Test case despite the besieged NSW spinner again struggling in the Bulls’ 188-run Sheffield Shield win at the Gabba. Harris inspired the Bulls with match figures of 7-118 and a run-a-ball 50 in a stirring first-class return from knee […]

Hammy-watch: A call on Clarke needed sooner rather than later

by , 19 Nov 2014

As the one-day train rolls into the Nation’s Capital today, and with new players coming into the Australian squad for the last three games of the series against South Africa, our off-field attention is being taken up by one of the biggest quandaries in Australian cricket. And no, I’m not talking about the Glenn Maxwell […]

Old man Rogers deserves more time

Old man Rogers deserves more time

by , 19 Nov 2014

Chris Rogers remains a crucial player for the Australian Test team. After lean returns during Australia’s two-Test series against Pakistan, there have been widespread calls to replace Rogers with young opener Phil Hughes. His 107 in the Shield against South Australia this week will have shored up Rogers’ position. While Hughes’ claims for a Test […]

First Test line-up still very much uncertain

by , 19 Nov 2014

There’s grave doubt about the captain, lingering concern about the deputy. There’s no certainty about number three. Or four. Or six, seven, nine and 10. Just 16 days from the first Test against India, Australia’s Test team is a puzzle. And selectors are running out of time to find fitting pieces. Captain Michael Clarke’s hamstring […]
