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...

Sometimes, as a responsible participant in civic debate, you have to climb down from dearly held opinions.

In current Australian cricket, few are held with such intensity as those involving the Marsh brothers.

Shaun the Elder, as he will be known when classicists sift our petrified society from volcanic ash, is the primary locus of discontent.

A cat burglar of selection, his specialty is getting into Australian teams from the outside. Where others have to bang down doors, Marsh slips through an air vent.

This career sequence is legendary, along with some inglorious consequences. When life wrote Marsh a birthday card, it said 'Many happy returns'. And like birthdays, things...

Players donned face masks and some left the field to vomit as the third Test between India and Sri Lanka in New Delhi was interrupted by heavy pollution.

The majority of the Sri Lankan players returned from the second day's lunch break wearing facemasks as the seasonal haze affecting the region thickened over the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in the Indian capital.

The second session witnessed two stoppages, of 17 and five minutes, as Lahiru Gamage and his pace colleague Suranga Lakmal both left the field finding it difficult to breathe.

We made a huge mistake: cricket fans say sorry to Ashes hero Shaun Marsh

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...

Escalating Ashes sledging should be censored on TV, England coach says

Stuart Broad celebrates in front of Australia's Peter Handscomb

Uncomfortable with the amount of Ashes sledging, England coach Trevor Bayliss wants verbal exchanges censored from television viewers.

Bayliss is concerned the verbal clashes between his players and Australia are overshadowing the cricket.

Asked if he was comfortable with the level of sledging in the series, Bayliss replied: "Personally from my point of view, probably not.

"And that goes from both sides. But it's just the way the game is these days."

Alastair Cook walks off as Australian players celebrate in the background

Bayliss was worried about the impact sledging heard via stump microphones would have on children watching and hearing it on television.

"I would like to see the microphones turned down," he said.

"I don't think that is necessarily a great thing for young kids at home...

Sledging won't unsettle Smith: Ponting - cricket.com.au

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting says England’s sledging would have to go to an “extreme level” to unsettle current skipper Steve Smith after another spicy day of Magellan Ashes cricket. 

Smith was engaged in verbal clashes with England’s prolific new-ball pair Stuart Broad and James Anderson on day one of the second Test in Adelaide but neither veteran could dismiss the world’s No.1-ranked Test batsman.

Broad was the first to engage Smith after taking on vice-captain David Warner to the point where he had each index finger in his ears a la ex-England batsman Kevin Pietersen from four years ago.

Smith was his next target, beating the crest on his chest and entering a slanging match that forced umpire Aleem Dar to intervene to keep the peace. 

Having survived the Broad barrage Smith then had to deal with Anderson, who was strategically placed at a short mid-on next to the pitch...

Tye, Klinger, lead Scorchers to upset win

LIFE after Chris Lynn may not be so rosy for the Brisbane Heat who could now be without captain Brendon McCullum after they stumbled against the Scorchers at the Gabba.

Lynn, the Heat’s golden boy, sat on the sidelines as he prepares to make his one-day international debut for Australia against Pakistan on Friday.

And they may also lose McCullum for Tuesday’s trip to face the Stars in Melbourne. McCullum could be suspended after the Heat’s bowling innings went longer than the allotted 90 minutes.

He was fined for having a slow over-rate against the Hurricanes on December 30 and a second offence can see the team’s captain suspended for one match.

Australia coach Darren Lehmann slammed the possible suspension, claiming McCullum should be allowed to play.
