In that regards, Australia may have a slight advantage. England's likely starting team contains more players who have not played much recent international cricket. Chris Woakes, the leader of the attack, has not played any cricket since the end of the Test series against Pakistan last month while Jason Roy, who missed all six T20Is, last played a competitive match, a Bob Willis Trophy fixture for Surrey, in mid-August. Joe Root has had a few T20 games for Yorkshire of late but the step up to facing the likes of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will be significant. … [Read more...] about Super League points up for grabs as England, Australia switch gears

In the last few days he has not looked like a cricketer who hasn't played for six months. He was Man of the Match again on his T20I return and was central to Australia's victory in the first ODI at Old Trafford, along with Glenn Maxwell's lively 77 and a world-class spell by Josh Hazlewood. There seems little reason, given a fair wind and no more punching of walls, that Marsh will not be in the middle order for a long run now as Australia build towards 2023. … [Read more...] about Mitchell Marsh ‘confident’ of Australia role as opportunity knocks again
Barring a significant U-turn from Morgan, Alex Hales will not return to the fold but there are no shortage of alternatives for the top three or four. Tom Banton impressed against Pakistan and is sure to be around the set-up for a long while yet but he failed to make an impact after being moved to No 4 in the first two games against Australia and missed out when he did get a shot at the top of the order in game three. … [Read more...] about England overloaded with T20 options with World Cup on the horizon but what is their best XI?
After how many days did you manage to hit the field? Initially, as soon as the series against South Africa got called off, I took a break for probably around 15-20 days... did nothing. Then I gradually returned to my routine workouts at home, slowly started working on my body. One of the things I realised was this would be the best time for me to work on aspects that need time and space - also the mental aspect. I thought of ways in which I could make the best of this opportunity. I realised I wouldn't get a time like this again. What happens when a top sportsperson doesn't have anybody around him or her to interact with? In my case, it was, again, the best thing that could've happened. I'm actually very good when there's nobody around me. I usually like to be left alone, spend time with family. Your diet must've gone through changes... After a long time, my mother was cooking for me, I was eating with her every day. I don't know when I'll get that kind of time again.

Former South African captain Faf du Plessis says his compatriot and good friend AB de Villiers’s sudden retirement in May 2018 from international cricket was ‘really tough for him’. De Villiers retirement came as a surprise for everyone including many as the former Proteas captain du Plessis who found it ‘incredibly hard to move forward without AB’ in their ranks. Du Plessis had recently got back into the groove in Test cricket after a spate of injuries kept him away from the longest format of the game in the past one year. … [Read more...] about Faf Du Plessis Opens up on AB De Villiers’ International Retirement: ‘Friend in me Trumped The Captain in me’
