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 World Cup - tickets for members

    Dec 29, 2013

    ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 logoIn 2015 the ICC Cricket World Cup is returning to Australia for the first time in 23 years and MCC members can be a part of it.

    The MCG will host the final, as it did in 1992, as well as a quarter final and three pool matches. View the schedule of matches.

    The requirements of the ICC for staging the Cricket World Cup are significantly different to those that apply under the MCC’s arrangements with Cricket Australia and Cricket Victoria for the staging of other international cricket at the MCG.

    The ICC has the right to use and occupy the whole of the MCG seating bowl, including our members’ area.

    As such, there can be no defined MCC Members Reserve allocated for use by MCC members and their guests during the World Cup matches staged at the MCG.

    This arrangement is similar to other major MCG events such as the 2006 Commonwealth Games and Olympic football at the 2000 Sydney Games.

    However, the ICC has agreed, at the MCC’s request, to provide a priority ticket purchase period for MCC members from Wednesday December 4, 2013. The priority period concludes on January 10, 2014.

    As a member, you will have the opportunity to purchase up to four tickets per match, so you can watch the world’s best battle it out alongside your friends and family.

    Members are required to enter their membership barcode number to be eligible to purchase tickets. As for all other events, your membership card is not transferable under any circumstances.

    Please note: MCC members will need to create a Cricket World Cup account before purchasing tickets, even if you have an existing Ticketek account you have used for other events. Register now using this MCC members’ registration code: MELME9

    The club has retained the use of the Long Room and Members Dining Room as dining facilities at these matches. Further details will be sent to ticket purchasers closer to the event.

    For further details, please see the comprehensive flyer accompanying the MCC News magazine in your mailbox this week, or visit http://icc-cricket.com/cricket-world-cup.
