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.

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, […]

The Shaun Marsh selection farce

The Shaun Marsh selection farce

by , 16 Jan 2015

Shaun Marsh. How is he getting a Test? Are the selectors thinking of persisting with him for the West Indies or England? If so it’s a joke. Yes, he just got a Test 99 in Melbourne and a 73 in Sydney, but he finished with an average of 42.33 for the series. In isolation these […]

The problem with all-rounders Part 1: How do you judge them?

The problem with all-rounders Part 1: How do you judge them?

by , 15 Jan 2015

In recent years Australia’s cricket selectors have gone all-rounder crazy. In September 2014 chief selector Rod Marsh announced that every team needed an all rounder. Indeed, some think that you should build a whole team around them. So we’ve got lots of talk about whether we play Shane Watson or Mitchell Marsh, or Watson and […]

Who will wear the baggy green post-Ashes?

Who will wear the baggy green post-Ashes?

by , 15 Jan 2015

The series against India is done and won, the One Day World Cup is imminent, and with a West Indies tour and then an Ashes defence in England coming up shortly after, the next home summer is surely the last thing on the minds of Australia’s cricketers. However it should be occupying most of the […]

Pietersen still craves England return

by , 15 Jan 2015

Exiled England batsman Kevin Pietersen has not given up on returning to international cricket and believes current ODI captain Eoin Morgan would welcome him back into the one-day side. Pietersen was unceremoniously dumped after England’s 5-0 Ashes drubbing in Australia last year and has since published a tell-all biography highly critical of England management, former […]

Big Bash League continues to put Test coverage in the shade

Big Bash League continues to put Test coverage in the shade

by , 15 Jan 2015

While watching an at times enthralling, but at other times snail-paced Twenty20 game between the Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat, viewers were treated to a wonderful on-air interview of Kevin Pietersen by former Australian Test captain Ricky Ponting. The candid and frank question-and-answer segment ran concurrently with the slower part of the Renegades’ innings and […]
