AN ANKLE injury to Australia spearhead Mitchell Starc has soured a positive opening day of the historic day-night Test at the Adelaide Oval.

    PETER Siddle became a worthy inductee into the 200-wicket club on Friday night, and is now just one step away from earning what he truly deserves – a Cricket Australia contract.

    JAMES Pattinson is expected to be playing Test cricket by Boxing Day but a fresh injury drama for Mitchell Starc could see him back in Hobart.

    THE braindead actions of a few have unfairly trashed the standing of A-League fans. But the supporters are exactly what makes A-League unparalleled in Australian sport, writes Matt Windley.

    AUSTRALIA is well placed after bowling New Zealand out on day one of the historic first day-night Test in Adelaide. Re-live Greg Buckle’s blog here.
