Australian Cricket Fixtures

The Australian Cricket team opened their season with a Tri-series in Zimbabwe against the host nation and South Africa in late August, where they lost to the Proteas in the final

The squad then travelled 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. They won the T20 and ODI series, but were dominated in the Test series 2-0.

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 hosted South Africa for a limited overs series in November 2014, which they won 4-1, and will host 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.

When Shane Warne speaks, you’d be foolish not to listen

When Shane Warne speaks, you’d be foolish not to listen

by , 24 Feb 2015

Leg-spin legend Shane Warne is the best captain Australia never had – no argument about that. Warne had the tactical and leadership skills to be captain, but was never named in Australia’s second-most important job thanks to his off-field behaviour. But for sheer cricket nous and tactical genius, Warne would have made an outstanding skipper […]

Cowan confident before Tasmania’s clash with Queensland

by , 16 Feb 2015

Former Test batsman Ed Cowan says he still has hopes of national selection as he signs on for another season with Tasmania. The 32-year-old has been the Tigers’ only consistent batsman in recent Sheffield Shield matches and the team will look to him for a strong home ground performance against Queensland, starting Monday. “We need […]

Sheek’s best Australian cricket XI

Sheek’s best Australian cricket XI

by , 10 Feb 2015

Having offered Roarers my Socceroos first and second XIs I now turn my attention to cricket. Here I will present not only my baggy greens (Test) first and second XIs but my gold caps (ODI) first and second XIs. The Australian One Day cricket team doesn’t have an official nickname, but gold caps is my […]

Is a knife in the back really the thanks Michael Clarke deserves?

Is a knife in the back really the thanks Michael Clarke deserves?

by , 2 Feb 2015

What a cricket season Michael Clarke has endured, personally and professionally. He has been dragged to the depths of hell and back. Rocked to the core, as was the nation, by the death of Phil Hughes. Valiant and inspirational in his leadership over the following days and weeks. A gutsy and defiant first Test century […]

Ten of the best Adam Gilchrist innings

Ten of the best Adam Gilchrist innings

by , 31 Jan 2015

Known for his infectious smile, brilliant humour and god-given ability to chirp all day on the field, Adam Gilchrist is without a doubt a household favourite among the cricketing community. During his illustrious 12-year international career, Gilchrist represented Australia in 96 Test matches and scored 5,570 runs, which included 17 centuries and 26 half-centuries, at […]

Michael Clarke must retire from ODI cricket immediately

Michael Clarke must retire from ODI cricket immediately

by , 29 Jan 2015

Based on playing ability alone, Michael Clarke should be playing in and captaining both Australia’s Test and ODI teams. But, given his deteriorating body, he can no longer handle the workload of playing both Test and ODI cricket. If Clarke were to come into the Australian ODI World Cup team for its second match of […]

This summer of sledge is just boring

This summer of sledge is just boring

by , 23 Jan 2015

I accept that sledging is a part of cricket and most incoming batsman can expect a few words when they reach the middle. But over this summer it seems to have grown much uglier. Australia and India have always had a love-hate relationship, and things are not improving. The incident involving Andrew Symonds and Harbhajan […]

Why persist with Watson?

Why persist with Watson?

by , 20 Jan 2015

The recent series against India has given us yet more reasons to wonder why Shane Watson is still an ever-present figure in the Australian Test team. I can only count a handful of times when Watson has been a large part of Australia’s success at Test level. He is extremely frustrating to watch. To continue […]

Shane Warne did Mitchell Starc a big favour

Shane Warne did Mitchell Starc a big favour

by , 18 Jan 2015

When Shane Warne called giant Australian paceman Mitchell Starc “soft” during the second Test against India at the Gabba, the leg-spin legend copped plenty of criticism. But Warne nailed Starc’s problem at a time when he was bowling far too much rubbish for an international, and looking as though he really care so long as […]

Boring Test tours should be dumped

Boring Test tours should be dumped

by , 18 Jan 2015

I love a great Test series. The Ashes 2005, The Border-Gavasker trophy 2001 and the Frank Worrell trophy 1999 are all glittering examples of how enthralling a cricket tour can be. But great Test series are very much the exception. Most series are typified by the home team grinding the visiting team into the dirt, […]
