A tournament jam-packed with memorable Aussie performances saw more than one player score a perfect ten in our World Cup report card.

THE triumphant Aussie cricket team has left itself open to criticism after drunken revelry while celebrating its World Cup victory.

UNDER-FIRE and under the influence, Brad Haddin has shot back at the critics, saying the Kiwis deserved the berating he gave them.

BERNARD Tomic has been booed late in his third-round loss to Tomas Berdych at the Miami Open as he let slip a huge chance to upset the world No.9.

ONE of the Hunter Valley’s leading thoroughbred studs is expected to complete the purchase of unbeaten Golden Slipper winner Vancouver this week in a deal which values the colt at more than $40 million.

Managing the MCG

Shane Warne bowls Andrew Strauss at the MCG to claim his 700th Test wicket.The MCC is a private club, incorporated under the Melbourne Cricket Club Act 1974, boasting by far the biggest membership of any sporting club in Australia.

It also has the public responsibility of managing one of the largest and the most successful stadiums in Australia and the world – the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

The MCG is built on crown land and is a significant asset of the Victorian people. The Melbourne Cricket Ground Trust, established by the Melbourne Cricket Ground Act 1933, is responsible for the ground management of the MCG.

Section 7(1) states “The function of the Trust is to manage and control and make improvements to the Ground at its discretion.”

In 2003, following the signing of the Management and Indemnity Deed between the Melbourne Cricket Club, the Melbourne Cricket Ground Trust and the Treasurer of Victoria, the MCC is contracted to manage the MCG until 2042.

Under the terms of the Deed the MCC has the exclusive rights to manage the MCG in accordance with the terms of the Management and Indemnity Deed.
