MICHAEL Clarke is unlikely to be the only man playing his final one-day international at the MCG on Sunday night.

YES, we know. New Zealand is on a record ten-game winning streak and beat Australia in the pool stage. But here’s why the World Cup final is a different story.

WHATEVER the result, history will be made at the MCG on Sunday. Here’s everything you need to know for Australia v New Zealand.

WE all know Rafael Nadal is a great tennis player — a great tennis player with a whole host of kooky superstitions that are not to be messed with.

BERNARD Tomic will play Tomas Berdych in the third round of the Miami Open after defeating American Austin Krajicek in straight sets.

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.
