AFGHANISTAN’S Rambo-styled paceman, Hamid Hassan, is ready to tick another box off his cricketing wish list when he walk onto the spiritual home of pace bowling, the WACA.

    MELBOURNE Storm skipper Cameron Smith says he will put his hand up to play on Monday night against the Dragons if his ankle pulls up well on Thursday.

    SOUTH AFRICA notched a second-straight score in excess of 400 before unleashing a pace barrage to record a thumping win over Ireland in Canberra.

    MICHAEL Clarke says he’s the fittest he’s been in five years as the Aussie captain prepares to go into unchartered territory over the next week.

    BRAD Hogg’s gut feeling says Australia will miss the World Cup final. He also thinks India have timed their run perfectly and will win the showpiece event.
