They and India are the clear favorites

Can the hosts win the Cricket World Cup?

Karmichael, you should stay out of this considering your sordid past

Hunt: Folau's doing just fine ahead of D-Day

Is this finally over? Rugby in this country is nearly dead and buried. This entire episode didn’t help it’s cause.

Folau fired: Rugby Australia axe Israel

I agree with everything you said except for the SMH turning into a tabloid part. It’s always been a pretty sketchy rag.

Will Raelene Castle survive the Folau scandal?

If that’s one of the things keeping rugby in Australia going, the game is in pretty bad shape

Will Raelene Castle survive the Folau scandal?

Of course she should. Her bravery in the face of this onslaught has been something to behold. She has rugby in Australia right on top.

The Kiwis also have Lachie Ferguson who is capable of those speeds. He’s much improved compared to his efforts in Australia a while ago

England will unleash two 150km/h quicks in The Ashes

Those people are mostly talking about slower more accurate bowlers in test cricket. Not limited overs

Opinions on twitter are definitely representative of the views of all Australians. I mean, everyone’s got a twitter account right?

Australia decides: Who would vote for Izzy?

Smith and Starc shine as Kiwis beat Australia

Kane Richardson is average at best. Surely there’s better options

Jhye Richardson ruled out of Cricket World Cup

That was a world class 9, Jim

Smith and Warner return as Australia pip New Zealand

Why is Maxwell out? Shaun Marsh at 5? Are the taking the Mickey? One day after Maxwell claims no problems with Smith or Warner https://amp.theaustralian.com.au/sport/cricket/cricket-world-cup-2019-no-issues-with-steve-smith-or-david-warner-says-glenn-maxwell/news-story/9708ac5846408c127acad5ac2e39063c

Warner and Smith officially make their national returns

Most of the media published their stories without getting comment from anyone

"I am not gay": James Faulkner clarifies Instagram post as CA issues apology

Faulkner did absolutely nothing wrong. The story is journalists not doing their job and being lazy as a usual by using social media to formulate news. Certain vested interest groups in the media most likely have templates of celebratory think pieces ready to go when there’s any inkling of someone famous “coming out”. They saw Faulkner’s post and went bull at a a gate to start publishing their pieces about it. They neglected to get comment from Faulkner, his mate and Cricket Australia before publication. When it was found out James is actually straight, the journos in question quickly about face and started attacking him to save face

James Faulkner's gaffe demonstrated a lack of awareness

Not at all.

"I am not gay": James Faulkner clarifies Instagram post as CA issues apology

Yes certain groups amongst the media were creating celebratory think pieces about Faulkner before they were let down

"I am not gay": James Faulkner clarifies Instagram post as CA issues apology

It’s been used for ages already. The media rips gossip from social media and prints it as fact

"I am not gay": James Faulkner clarifies Instagram post as CA issues apology

Exactly. There would’ve been corks popping at CA HQ at how they could appear so virtuous

"I am not gay": James Faulkner clarifies Instagram post as CA issues apology

Vested interests do. They can get publicity for this

The poor returns from Mitch Marsh in 31 tests makes Watson’s test career look a whole lot better.

The joyous autumn of Shane Watson

He’s alright

Trent Robinson is one of the great coaches of the modern era

Foley will be back at 10 for the Wallabies I’m sure. Expect more games of schoolboy errors with mediocre highlights

The Wrap: Foley TKOs Cooper as Australian conference tightens up

I still think the best way back to the Test team for Bancroft is to become a specialist keeper batsman. Paine won’t be around for a whole lot longer and we have plenty of top order players at the moment.

Bancroft's tons put him in World Cup frame

What a waste! He could’ve been very useful over the last few years with our dearth of good batsmen. His success in England especially would’ve been helpful to Australia.

PSA: Mark Cosgrove is in England too
