AUSTRALIA slumped to one of the darkest days in the Darren Lehmann-Michael Clarke era as England dominated the opening day of the third Ashes Test at Edgbaston.

    MICHAEL Clarke won the toss at Edgbaston and opted to bat on day one of the third Ashes Test. It was the only Aussie ‘win’ for the day.

    DID a bad memory from 10 years ago provoke Michael Clarke to stop the funk and make a call that could have turned the Ashes series on its head?

    SOUTH Melbourne’s return to the national stage has been cut short in gut-wrenching fashion, losing an epic penalty shootout to Palm Beach Sharks at Cbus Super Stadium.

    DOES the decision by selectors to cut popular team man Brad Haddin have the potential to destabilise Australia’s Ashes campaign?
