Ruthless bowling and some brilliant catching has seen Australia maintain its advantage over England on day three of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide, with the tourists finishing the day 267 runs behind.

Australia went to stumps on 4-53 with Peter Handscomb (3 not out) and the nightwatchman Nathan Lyon (2 not out) at the crease after enduring a scintillating spell of swing bowling from James Anderson (2-16) which claimed the wickets of Cameron Bancroft (4) and Usman Khawaja (20).

James Anderson and Joe Root give a high ten after Anderson took a wicket.

Chris Woakes (2-13) backed him up with the vital wickets of David Warner (14) and Steve Smith (6) late on to cap off a fine...

Lynnsanity: Two debutants named for first ODI

AUSTRALIA has sprung a selection surprise for the first one-day international against Pakistan, with Usman Khawaja and Adam Zampa overlooked and two debutants named.

Steve Smith confirmed on Thursday that both Chris Lynn and beanpole quick Billy Stanlake had been selected to make their ODI debuts at the Gabba on Friday.

Lynn will slot into the middle order, with Travis Head picked over Khawaja to open the batting opposite David Warner.

Despite battling a shoulder injury, Lynn is the highest run-scorer in this season’s Big Bash League (309 at 154.50) and has hit 26 sixes across five matches for the Brisbane Heat.

Pirates pick their target in FNC cricket - Northern Star

Cudgen middle-order batsman Lachlan Wylie at the crease against Lennox Head in FNC LJ Hooker League cricket on Saturday.

LENNOX Head teenager Oliver Cronin took four wickets against an understrength Cudgen in Far North Coast LJ Hooker League cricket at Megan Crescent Oval, Lennox Head.

Cudgen had five players away on representative duty with Northern Rivers while another three players were unavailable.

However, they did have top-order batsman Alec Williams back after he was left out of the Northern Rivers team and he captained the side for the first time.

It looked like Cudgen would struggle when they lost Williams for 28 before Alex Manteit top-scored with 74.

Manteit is new to the club this season and is yet to cement a spot in the top grade while second- grader Dylan Stoddart stepped up with a determined half century.

Cudgen were dismissed with a flurry of wickets...

Black Caps wrap up crushing win over WI - cricket.com.au

New Zealand have quickly run through the West Indies lower order to win the first cricket Test in Wellington by an innings and 67 runs.

The Windies were bowled out for 319 out midway through the middle session of the fourth day, the wickets spread among the Kiwi bowlers.

Trent Boult (2-87) took the final wicket, bowling Miguel Cummins to end the match with a day-and-a-half to spare.

Neil Wagner's 2-102 gave him a Test-best haul of 9-141 after his seven-wicket bag in the first innings.

Matt Henry finished with 3-57, Colin de Grandhomme 2-40 and Mitchell Santner 1-25.

Resuming the day at 2-214, the West Indies lost three wickets in the morning session and were 5-286 at lunch.

LIVE: Blues bowling in delayed start to Shield - cricket.com.au

Tasmania's openers have crawled to lunch after being sent in to bat by NSW under gloomy skies on day two of their JLT Sheffield Shield clashat Blundstone Arena.

The Tigers were 0-68 at the end of Monday's first session, after wild rain wiped out the opening day in Hobart.

A watchful Alex Doolan was 36 and Jordan Silk 32 after surviving multiple lbw appeals early against a four-pronged NSW pace attack headlined by former Test seamers Doug Bollinger and Trent Copeland.

The Tigers, bolstered by the inclusion of fringe Test quick Jackson Bird, scored at fewer than two runs per over during the extended session.

Blues skipper Moises Henriques, who suffered a groin injury, was a late withdrawal in a NSW side looking to cement their position at the top of the Shield table heading into a two-month first-class break.

The Ashes: Australian cricket fans say sorry to Shaun Marsh - ABC Online

Shaun Marsh defends

Australia is on top in the second Test in Adelaide and it's all thanks to a magnificent unbeaten century from S̶t̶e̶v̶e̶ ̶S̶m̶i̶t̶h̶ Shaun Marsh.

If you did a double-take as you watched his dominance yesterday, you're not alone — it wasn't what many were expecting.

But when the elder of the Marsh brothers was selected for the Ashes last month, we wrote, "Maybe, just maybe, there is method to what many will consider is the madness of Australia's selectors."

Well, he's already gone a long way towards rewarding their faith.

Cricket writer Geoff Lemon, a regular critic of Marsh's selections, was among the many with a mea culpa this morning:

Let it be carved on the stone of record by my own hand: in this season's second Test, across the first two days at Adelaide Oval, in the Year of a New...

Ambris continues unique Test debut - cricket.com.au

West Indies debutant Sunil Ambris has continued his unique introduction to international cricket, becoming just the sixth player to hit a six as their first scoring shot in their Test career.

Ambris carved himself an unwanted slice of history during the tourists' first innings against New Zealand in Wellington, becoming the very first batsman in the history of Test cricket to be out hit wicket for a golden duck on Test debut.

Ambris makes history with hit wicket golden duck

That dismissal came in amidst a Windies collapse that saw the tourists lose 8-30 to be bowled out for 134.

On the day four, it was a much happier story for Ambris when he strode to the crease with West Indies 4-257 in their second dig.

He faced two balls from New Zealand quick Trent Boult without scoring before sending the fourth ball he faced in international cricket over the fine leg fence for a maximum, albeit...
