Young quick Jhye Richardson and all-rounders Mitch Marsh and Glenn Maxwell should be picked for Australia’s tour of South Africa next month as the Aussies prepare for the 2020 World Cup.
It’s the best time of year for sporting fans, with an Ashes series just wrapped up, AFL and NRL finals underway and the Rugby World Cup coming up soon.
We’ve got a big episode of the Game of Codes for you today, with a full breakdown of the fourth Ashes Test, a look ahead to the fifth Test, before we look back at the first week of AFL finals and finish off in the NRL.
First up, we’re joined by Roar cricket expert Glenn Mitchell to examine Joe Root’s comments on Australia’s Ashes series triumph – was Steve Smith really the only reason we won?
We then look ahead to the fifth and final Test – is it time to drop David Warner? How should we approach the big game?
It’s AFL finals next on the agenda, with Roar AFL expert Marnie Cohen jumping on to talk the biggest winners from Week 1 of September.
We finish off in the NRL, where Roar rugby league expert and editor Scott Pryde jumps on to make a call on which non-finalist is the best chance to rebound next season.
