Contemplating what to pen a few thoughts on this week, a couple of ideas immediately sprung to mind.

Generations of cricketers have grown up in this country with the dream of playing in an Ashes series.

Usman Khawaja and Peter Handscomb must tour India in October, Australia have missed James Faulkner, and Travis Head is becoming an invaluable asset – these are among the things we learned from the Champions Trophy.

Cricket is a form game, and to get into form you need to be on the field.

13 Have your say

Usman Khawaja could soon be plunged into the middle of the acrimonious pay dispute between Cricket Australia and the players’ union, having been named captain of Australia A.

20 Have your say

Marcus Stoinis is in doubt for the Champions Trophy just over two weeks out from Australia’s first warm-up match after injuring his shoulder in the IPL. Who, then, are his potential replacements?

40 Have your say

Usman Khawaja really has not been that hard done by, regardless of the outcry from hordes of fans. It’s James Faulkner who’s been truly stiffed, first left out of the Champions Trophy and then denied a Cricket Australia contract.

92 Have your say

It is fair to say that Australian batsmen Usman Khawaja has had an unlucky run in the Australian team since the start of this year.

14 Have your say

In a desperate bid to be noticed by the selectors for a potential Bangladesh series, Usman Khawaja has taken the extraordinary step of changing his surname from the invisible ‘Khawaja’ to the far more prominent and popular ‘Marsh’.

13 Have your say

Another superb Test ton from the very reliable Steve Smith and a career best from the usually very unreliable Glenn Maxwell earned Australia control of the third Test against India at Ranchi on the opening day.

30 Have your say

Why is Usman Khawaja in India? It’s a pretty simple question, and one any of the selectors or Cricket Australia officials would have a great deal of trouble answering to my satisfaction.

Steven Smith’s men bear a strong resemblance to Allan Border’s side of 1987, defying expectations and succeeding in India. All that could have gone right for them has. Well, almost. The one chink in their armour has been the all-rounder spot.

17 Have your say

Matt Renshaw has stopped selector-coach Darren Lehmann from making anymore ‘Boof’ comments.

19 Have your say

Four years ago the national selection panel of John Inverarity, Rod Marsh, Andy Bichel and Micky Arthur saw fit to leave in-form batsman Usman Khawaja out of the four Test series against India in India, even though he was in the touring party.

105 Have your say

Australia’s plans for their first cricket Test against India are starting to become clearer, with Usman Khawaja set to be axed again despite a productive home summer.

2 Have your say

Usman Khawaja looks likely to be dropped for the first Test against India on Thursday after being left out of the team for Australia’s only warm-up match which started yesterday in Mumbai.

Australia’s recent practice of resting key players for overseas ODI series has seen them lose seven consecutive matches away from home. How will this affect their confidence for the upcoming Champions Trophy in England?

97 Have your say

After a sensational finish to the season by the Australian cricket team and the raging success of the BBL, Cricket Australia can be pleased with the health of the game in the country.

48 Have your say

Usman Khawaja has been rested from Australia’s ODI series in New Zealand, starting next week, which means he badly needs a big score today or he could miss out on the upcoming Champions Trophy.
