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.

India face grim prospects ahead of Australian tour

India face grim prospects ahead of Australian tour

by , 18 Sep 2014

India looked like a boxer that had taken too many blows by the time their five-Test series against England had come to an end. Sure they played brilliantly during the first two Tests in Nottingham and Lord’s, but it’s not how you start the series, it’s how you finish. England came roaring back in the […]

When Tested, batsmen don’t dominate

When Tested, batsmen don’t dominate

by , 15 Sep 2014

Since the furore regarding the suspension of Saeed Ajmal for chucking erupted I’ve been seeing one statement pop up in comments and articles over and over again – “batsmen are dominating cricket”. I haven’t been the biggest fan of unorthodox off-spin bowling of the bent arm variety popularised by Muttiah Muralidaran. In fact, I have […]

Pakistan can beat Australia without Ajmal

Pakistan can beat Australia without Ajmal

by , 14 Sep 2014

No Test player is more irreplaceable to their side than Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal. But his ban for throwing last week does not guarantee Australia victory in the two-Test series against Pakistan next month. Only 18 months ago, Australia were flogged 4-0 in India, with their batsmen befuddled by a pair of average spinners in […]

Stephen O’Keefe: Saviour or Hail-Mary?

Stephen O’Keefe: Saviour or Hail-Mary?

by , 10 Sep 2014

Followers of Sheffield Shield cricket in Australia will be surprised at the inclusion of Stephen O’Keefe in Australia’s Test squad to face Pakistan. Not because his talent and performances don’t warrant it, but because the fact he hadn’t been picked before suggested he may have been out of favour with the selectors. It begs the […]

Bailey steps down as Twenty20 captain

by , 8 Sep 2014

Aaron Finch is set to take over the Australian Twenty20 captaincy after George Bailey announced he was standing down from the role. Bailey said he made the decision in consultation with selectors after indicating to them he wanted to concentrate on longer-form cricket with the hope of playing at Test level again. The 32-year-old got […]

He’s no Shane Warne, but Lyon’s our off-spin king

He’s no Shane Warne, but Lyon’s our off-spin king

by , 7 Sep 2014

Since the retirement of Shane Warne, Australia has hammered through the first class ranks of domestic cricket to find his replacement. Spinner after spinner was tried, some given multiple Tests to prove their worth, and some only given the solitary chance. Finally, Australia has settled with the off-spin of Nathan Lyon. And he could be […]

Australian selectors must put faith in Phil Hughes

Australian selectors must put faith in Phil Hughes

by , 7 Sep 2014

Ever since the retirements of Australia’s all-time greats such as Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Justin Langer, Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist, players have been brought into the side and then chucked out like old sweat rags. So many young players since Australia’s golden era ended have been brought into the Test and ODI teams, only […]

Norman Gordon: The timeless Test cricketer

by , 6 Sep 2014

Norman Gordon, who was the oldest living Test cricketer, passed away at the age of 103 years and 27 days in his Johannesburg home on September 2. He was the first and only male Test cricketer to have crossed the age of 100. In August 2010, Gordon became the oldest living Test cricketer following the […]

Australia’s killer instinct is back

Australia’s killer instinct is back

by , 27 Aug 2014

Darren Lehman took the reigns of an Australian cricket team in a harrowing state in June 2013. Almost 14 months on, the side looks a shade of its abject former self and looks set to return to an era of winning. While comprised of similar personnel to that of the ill-fated 2013 Champions Trophy, the […]

Don’t pick Hughes in Tests – not yet

Don’t pick Hughes in Tests – not yet

by , 24 Aug 2014

Phil Hughes should be overlooked for Australia’s Test tour against Pakistan in October – for his own good. There was widespread dismay among Australian cricket followers when the New South Wales prodigy was overlooked for the ODI squad to go to Zimbabwe later this month. The outrage was justified – Hughes owns a phenomenal domestic […]
