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.

Home and away Tests, more than just a TV soapie

by , 21 Aug 2014

Home advantage has always played a big part in cricket, as it probably has in all international sports. But these days it makes a huge difference in Test cricket. As India will be touring Australia this summer, let us analyse the home-and-away series results since 1996-97 when the Border-Gavaskar Trophy was inaugurated. In Australia, Australia […]

O’Keefe and Sayers push Test cases for Australia A

by , 17 Aug 2014

Injuries to frontline quicks Ryan Harris, James Pattinson and Jackson Bird mean Australia may blood a rookie paceman on the Test tour against Pakistan in October. In an expected 15-man squad for that tour, Australia will likely select four fast bowlers in addition to two specialist spinners. Injury forced NSW spinner Steve O’Keefe to wait […]

Australia must plan for our next Test generation

Australia must plan for our next Test generation

by , 13 Aug 2014

Succession planning is important everywhere, particularly in sport. Australia’s cricket team right now has six or more players that within three years will most likely be retired, have lost form or simply not physically capable any more. If you thought it was bad when we lost Greg Chappell, Dennis Lillee and Rod Marsh in one […]

England smash India to smithereens in three days

by , 11 Aug 2014

There is no disgrace in losing a Test, but to be thumped by an innings in three days – 14 hours and 15 minutes to be precise – is humiliating. India suffered such embarrassment in the Manchester Test on Saturday. This from a team boasting quality batsmen Murali Vijay, Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Gautam […]

Former India wicketkeeper Farokh Engineer lamented the team’s “embarrassing” innings and 54-run defeat by England in the third Test at Old Trafford on Saturday, criticising both the players and coach Duncan Fletcher. “This was embarrassing,” the 76-year-old Engineer, who played 46 Tests from 1961-1975, told BBC Radio Five on Sunday. “India shot themselves in the […]

If Doolan fails at first drop, Smith should be second choice

If Doolan fails at first drop, Smith should be second choice

by , 10 Aug 2014

Ahead of Australia’s Test tour against Pakistan in October, much of the debate about Australia’s line-up has revolved around the number three batting spot. Alex Doolan is the incumbent but is yet to bed it down. Shane Watson was his predecessor but the selectors seem to believe he is better suited at six, where he […]

Broad cops a bouncer to the head, finally walks

by , 10 Aug 2014

England found themselves a bowler down in the fourth Test against India after Stuart Broad retired hurt, having being struck on the nose by a bouncer while batting at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Who makes Australia’s XI for the first Ashes Test in England 2015?

by , 5 Aug 2014

Australia are about to begin a Test cricket schedule which will see them taking on Pakistan in the UAE, a home series against India, and finally the quest to retain the urn in the Old Dart.

Revisting King Kallis’ best performances in whites

by , 3 Aug 2014

International cricket has become poorer after the retirement of Jacques Kallis, one of the greatest cricketers ever to have graced the field.

The South African all-rounder quit Test cricket in December 2013, […]

Shock: Cook scores runs as England win a Test

by , 2 Aug 2014

England cricket captain Alastair Cook was delighted by his side’s dominant display to beat India at Southampton on Thursday and record their first Test win in nearly a year.
