    NOVAK Djokovic had to draw on every bit of his class to deny Stan Wawrinka the chance to defend his Australian Open crown. LIVE COVERAGE

    WITH just two weeks to go until Australia’s first World Cup match, we want you to tell us who makes the cut in your Aussie World Cup XI.

    A SHOCKED Asian football chief has savaged claims on the eve of the Asian Cup final that the Confederation wants to expel Australia.

    A CENTURY stand between James Taylor and Jos Buttler rescued England from a batting collapse and propelled it into the tri-series final.

    WATCH: How’s your lip reading? At the Australian Open Andy Murray and fiancee Kim Sears were caught using some very colourful language.

    The Official XXIX Club Song

    XXIX Club founding member Ian 'Doc' McDonald (left) with XXIX Club song author Doug ReidThere is a tavern at the ground, at the ground,
    Where XXIXers sit around, sit around,
    ‘Mid pints of beer and camaraderie,
    And talk about the MCC.

    Happy hours of reminiscing,
    Not a single stroke is missing,
    As the runs and wickets tumble from their memory,

    Good friends, the game will live for aye, live for aye,
    As long as XXIXers play, IXers play:
    So lift your glass and drink with throttle free,
    To Cricket and the MCC.

    Doug Reid – 1962
