PAKISTAN-BORN spinner Fawad Ahmed is in line for a Test debut alongside Adam Voges after being named in the squads for the Ashes and West Indies.

IT was a far cry from Kaiserslautern but it was the type of game Australia might face on the ‘Road to Russia’. So, what did it teach us about the Socceroos?

5 BURNING QUESTIONS: Australia suggested Mercedes were set to continue their Formula 1 domination into 2015. So what happened in Malaysia?

IT HAS emerged that superstar AB de Villiers almost pulled out of the World Cup semi-final over internal South African team dramas.

Playing Venues

The picturesque Albert GroundWhile the MCC home ground is the MCG, very few Premier Cricket games are played there owing to the heavy national and interstate program. 

The MCC First and Second XI play their home matches at the picturesque Albert Ground, the club's 'home base' for more than a century. 

The Albert Ground also hosts countless representative cricket matches in any given summer, including Cricket Australia Cup, Dowling Shield, XXIX Club, Country Week and Australian Under 17 and Under 19 championship matches.

Since the start of the 2012/13 season, the club's Third and Fourth XI are playing at the HG Smith Oval in Royal Park, Parkville.

This follows a succession of moves from our once long time home base of the ‘Old Scotch’ ovals located in Yarra Park, the relocation brought about by the development of Melbourne Park.
