FROM Michael Clarke lifting the trophy to Grant Elliott’s match-winning six and Wahab Riaz staring down Shane Watson, these moments defined the World Cup.

    AFTER the World Cup final, Shane Warne hovered over the triumphant Australians like the sad old uncle at an 18th birthday party, writes Richard Hinds.

    A $2 million pay day beckons for Steve Smith and Mitchell Starc, who are in the frame to be ranked No.1 on Cricket Australia’s lucrative contract list.

    BRAD Haddin appears set to follow Michael Clarke into retirement from one-day cricket.

    LEG spin is set to return to the Australian Test side, with Pakistan-born Fawad Ahmed expected to be named in the dual-squads for the Ashes and West Indies.

    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.
