Australian Cricket Fixtures

Following the 2013/14 Australian summer, Australia will play a three-Test series in South Africa, as well as three T20 internationals.

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.

Steve Smith can become a potent Test spinner

Steve Smith can become a potent Test spinner

by , 13 Apr 2014

Now that Steve Smith has graduated into a consistent Test batsman, he has the opportunity to develop his dangerous leg breaks. The New South Welshmen made the right choice several years ago by making his bowling a distant second priority in order to exploit his generous talent with the blade. The Australian selectors had mistakenly […]

Henriques can leapfrog Faulkner, Maxwell into Test side

Henriques can leapfrog Faulkner, Maxwell into Test side

by , 9 Apr 2014

Moises Henriques’ brilliant century in the Sheffield Shield final should have vaulted him back into contention for the Test side. Australia clearly place a high value on having an all-rounder in the Test side and, with Shane Watson soon to turn 33 and plagued by injuries, a position could open up in the middle order […]

Cricket’s rise of technology and loss of theatre

Cricket’s rise of technology and loss of theatre

by , 1 Apr 2014

The scene is Boxing Day, 1981. The crowd is overflowing at the old MCG, and the atmosphere is at fever pitch. Earlier, the crowd saw Kim Hughes play one of the all-time great innings – a lone hand against the fearsome pace quartet of Andy Roberts, Michael Holding, Colin Croft and Joel Garner. Somehow he […]

Are the Aussie cricketers too old?

Are the Aussie cricketers too old?

by , 30 Mar 2014

Pass the Salt Please! That is the cry from the head trainer in the dressing rooms of the Australian T20 cricket team in Bangladesh. The creaking bones and cramping muscles of the aged line-up slowly settle in for their post match recovery rub, amidst the humiliation of a failed venture. I am a true supporter […]

Where does Faulkner fit in Test puzzle?

Where does Faulkner fit in Test puzzle?

by , 28 Mar 2014

James Faulkner is the best first-class cricketer outside the Australian Test side. But the 23-year-old all-rounder does not have an obvious future position in the Test XI. His bowling is his strong suit, as evidenced by his sensational first-class record of 142 wickets at 23. Faulkner’s strike rate of 46 is phenomenal and proves he […]

Can Warner be Australia’s best-ever Test opener?

Can Warner be Australia’s best-ever Test opener?

by , 25 Mar 2014

Just six months ago, David Warner was a figure of derision. He was floundering on the field and flailing off it. The Australian opener had no answers against India’s spinners during the 4-0 Test rout or against England’s quicks in the Ashes that followed. He was dropped from the Australian ODI side. Amid all this, […]

Graeme Swann – we know what you did last summer

Graeme Swann – we know what you did last summer

by , 21 Mar 2014

Jonathan Trott. Who knows what happened there. Who knows if he needed to go home. Who knows if he just wanted to go home. Was it stress, fatigue, depression, fear? Who knows. There are 99.94 theories out there and this week’s one-on-one interview with a remarkably relaxed Ian Ward only made things foggier. Graeme Swann? […]

Please, get off Alex Doolan’s back

Please, get off Alex Doolan’s back

by , 20 Mar 2014

Australia must stick with Alex Doolan instead of instigating yet another shuffle of the Test batting line-up. Doolan was handed the mightiest of challenges a debutant could face – countering the world’s most-vaunted pace attack in their own backyard. He may have only produced 186 runs at 31 over the three-Test series in South Africa. […]

Bring on a four-Test series between Australia and South Africa

Bring on a four-Test series between Australia and South Africa

by , 13 Mar 2014

News that Australia and South Africa are considering staging longer Test series is heartening for fans of the oldest form of the game. The countries are negotiating potential four-Test series in the future, in recognition of the superb cricket produced in their encounters over recent years, Cricinfo reported yesterday. The three-Test series in South Africa […]

Building pressure to create wickets

Building pressure to create wickets

by , 13 Mar 2014

Over the weekend I had a piece on The Roar which raised the idea that there was such as thing as a ‘red zone’ in cricket. The numbers put forward were pretty basic, high level and didn’t say a lot that was particularly meaningful – they were just percentages. There wasn’t a lot of causation […]
