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.

Who is Joe Burns, Australia’s latest Test debutant?

by , 22 Dec 2014

Joe Burns will make his Test cricket debut for Australia on Boxing Day, barring some miracle comeback by Mitchell Marsh or an injury. But many Aussie cricket fans who don’t follow the domestic scene might be wondering exactly who he is. We’ve broken down who he is, and how he goes about things for you, […]

Australia’s Test batting future coming together

Australia’s Test batting future coming together

by , 22 Dec 2014 Video

For the last three to four years, we have been hearing how bare the Australian batting cupboard is. It seems there are no able replacements or young batsman coming through. However, there are several young batsmen coming through and starting to put their hands up. A look at the batting charts of this year’s Sheffield […]

The fire has only just begun for Burns

The Australian selectors have already shown a desire to look to the future this summer, and Joe Burns’ selection for the Boxing Day Test has reinforced their vision. At 25 years of age, Burns is in the best form of his life and will get the opportunity to cement his place in a batting line […]

Steve Smith fined for slow over-rate

by , 22 Dec 2014

Steve Smith has been fined for Australia’s slow over-rate in the second Test and risks a one-match ban if found guilty of the same offence in the next year. Smith has been docked 60 per cent of his match fee, while teammates handed over 30 per cent of their fees. If Smith is found guilty […]

Johnson finds his magic as the Mitching hour returns

Johnson finds his magic as the Mitching hour returns

by , 21 Dec 2014 Video

If cricket can be characterised by the ponderous tick of a scoreboard clock, Mitchell Johnson is a player in fast forward. Much of Test cricket’s joy is in gradual gratification: the way you wait through sessions for particular achievements to be built, and through days for what you hope will be a glorious resolution. More […]

Behrendorff, Voges, Burns and Cowan in mix for Boxing Day

Behrendorff, Voges, Burns and Cowan in mix for Boxing Day

by , 21 Dec 2014 Video

Australia could field a debutant batsman and a rookie quick in the Boxing Day Test due to Mitch Marsh’s injury and Mitchell Starc’s wayward bowling in the second Test at Brisbane. Marsh will miss the third Test against India due to a hamstring strain, while there has been no confirmation yet that veteran quick Ryan […]

Johnson fires Aussies to tight Test win

by , 21 Dec 2014 Video

It was one of the most helter-skelter Tests ever played in Australia, with Mitchell Johnson’s menace proving the difference in Brisbane. Australia claimed a 2-0 lead in their four-Test series against India, grabbing a four-wicket win on Saturday when they nervously chase down a target of 128 runs. India and Australia both suffered sudden collapses […]

Dhoni, Smith play down cricket behaviour

by , 21 Dec 2014 Video

The confrontations weren’t as heated as those in Adelaide, but animosity between Australia and India was hard to miss in the second Test. David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli were all fined for their roles in two separate incidents at Adelaide Oval. The trio were again in the thick of it at the Gabba. […]

Cowan in, Starc out: Australia’s best Test XI

Cowan in, Starc out: Australia’s best Test XI

by , 21 Dec 2014 Video

Following the second straight Test victory over a determined India side, all talk should be about the possibility of a clean sweep, or at last winning the third Test to wrap up a series victory. Instead talk has shifted to whether Shane Watson deserves to be retained for the remainder of the series after yet […]

Team changes likely for Boxing Day Test

by , 21 Dec 2014

David Warner is keeping his fingers crossed that he can put his hand up for the Boxing Day Test despite an injured thumb. And allrounder Mitch Marsh does not expect to be hamstrung in the third Test clash with India in Melbourne. But selectors still look set to break the golden rule of changing a […]
