MITCHELL Starc’s radar was off - way off - early on day two against Essex, reprising memories of Steve Harmison’s infamous wide against Australia.

    HERALD Sun form analyst Michael Manley previews the nine-race card at Caulfield featuring bold frontrunner Lord Of The Sky in the Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes.

    Lleyton Hewitt and Thanasi Kokkinakis appeared down and out in their first round doubles tie, until the veteran produced a vintage fighting display.

    A decade on from arguably the greatest ever Ashes series, we ask one of the men involved what lessons can be passed on to Michael Clarke’s Australia.

    AS the Wallabies cool their heels on the Sunshine Coast, 2015’s two best Super Rugby teams go head-to-head in Wellington for the championship.

    CRICKET LEGEND PASSES ON TIPS

    Former Australian fast bowler and current Australia women's head coach, Cathryn Fitzpatrick, was a welcome guest at MCC women's cricket training at the Albert Ground on January 21, 2015. 

    Fitzpatrick played 13 Tests and 109 one-day matches for Australia between 1991 and 2006 and was widely regarded as the fastest female bowler of her time.

    Before her appoinment as Australia coach two years ago, she was an assistant coach as well as head coact of VicSpirit.

    The MCC is extremely appreciative of the time 'Fitzy' spent with the players, both one-on-one and in groups, and it is hoped her pearls of wisdom can be put into good effect by our girls in the lead up to the finals.
