    INTRODUCING our Aussie Power Rankings, which rates the country’s top 40 cricketers according to their overall importance. Now have your say!

    THE McLaren F1 team has hinted that rivals Red Bull used coded messages to assist Daniel Ricciardo’s drive to a podium finish in Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix.

    CAMPBELL Flakemore has won Australia’s second gold medal at the road world championships in Spain with a barnstorming finish in the individual time trial.

    AFTER months of speculation British media is reporting that Alastair Cook will be retained as England’s captain for the World Cup.

    UPDATE: IT was a forced marriage on top of an unlikely alliance, but departing Godolphin jockey Kerrin McEvoy denies there is a rift with the struggling stable.

    Public Transport

    Trains
    There are two train stations close to the MCG. Jolimont (otherwise known as MCG Station) is north of the ground and offers a five-minute stroll through Yarra Park to the ground. From any railway station in the central business district, take the Hurstbridge or Epping lines.

    The other station is Richmond on the south eastern side of the MCG. It's an easy but slightly longer walk to the ground but you can walk past the Punt Road Oval to the Great Southern Stand side.

    To get to Richmond station from the city, take any train on the Lilydale, Belgrave, Alamein, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston or Sandringham lines.

    Trams
    Three tram routes provide access to the MCG.

    No. 75 (City-Vermont South) travels along Flinders St and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade.

    No. 48 (Docklands/City-North Balwyn) travels along Collins St and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade. Both these routes stop just outside the MCG. 

    No. 70 (Docklands/City-Wattle Park) travels along Flinders St then detours via Melbourne Park and the tram stop is a short walk across the footbridge to the ground.

    Buses
    The Bus route 246 is run by National Bus Company, which links La Trobe University with Elsternwick Station in a useful service for patrons from the northern and southern suburbs. The 246 stops in Punt Road, just a punt kick from the ground.

    Taxis
    Taxis are available from the ground at the conclusion of each event. Otherwise the venue is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the city.
