BBC cricket commentator Jonathan Agnew caught jaywalking on deserted Adelaide street - NEWS.com.au

ESTEEMED cricket commentator Jonathan Agnew has decried overzealous authorities for booking him for jaywalking just after midnight on a deserted Adelaide street.

The BBC and ABC commentator, who last week declared his love for Adelaide as a city and Test venue, was walking across North Tce to the Adelaide Railway Station.

Four officers emerged to inform him of the offence, asking for his name and address. He is yet to receive a fine.

“Booked for walking across a deserted street at 0045. Adelaide! I used to love you! How sad,” Agnew declared on Twitter shortly afterwards.

What's your view on jaywalking

Agnew, who has been praising the city in a series of tweets tagged #loveadelaide, then retweeted a fan’s response.

“Just as I was starting to feel proud of how our state must have looked to our visitors over the past 5 days, we go and ruin it #storyofourlives #classicadelaide...

Cricket: Sri Lanka lodges complaint with ICC after smoggy Test against India - Wide World of Sports

Sri Lanka's cricket board has complained to the sport's governing body about the poor air quality in which its players have been compelled to play a Test match in the Indian capital New Delhi.

Sports minister Dayasiri Jayasekara said Sri Lanka Cricket made the complaint on Tuesday to the International Cricket Council, saying "we can't play like this as four players had vomited" due to the pollution.

He said the ICC had informed them that it will take necessary steps. However it is not certain what action ICC had taken.

Sri Lanka and India played their third and final Test ending on Wednesday at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.

Sri Lanka's cricketers wore face masks during the match and the bowlers complained of shortness of breath.

Steve Smith to consult Australian Test cricket team on follow-on calls: Mitchell Starc - The Sydney Morning Herald

Mitchell Starc says Steve Smith will consult his bowling unit in future follow-on decisions to avoid a repeat of the captain's second Test stress in Adelaide.

Smith came under fire for not sending England in to bat again to face the swinging pink ball when the tourists trailed by 215 runs after the first innings, former vice-captain Shane Warne among those to question the call.

The skipper admitted he needed a sleeping pill as he not only tossed and turned over not giving his bowlers another crack but after also wasting two reviews and putting down two catches on a tense fourth night as England threatened to pull off an unlikely comeback victory.

While Australia ultimately completed a 120-run victory to take a 2-0 Ashes series lead, the fallout continued when Australian bowling coach David Saker publicly called Smith...

Hindsight the only weapon as Ashes captains cop misplaced criticism

Related Story: Australia blitzes England to complete Adelaide win and take 2-0 Ashes lead

If you spent the last few days listening to various intellects of the internet, outer, columns and airwaves, you'd conclude that both Ashes captains are blithering idiots who have never heard of cricket, much less played it.

After the first two days of the Adelaide Test, England's Joe Root was variously portrayed as reckless, stupid, arrogant, ignorant, and cowardly for deciding to bowl first after winning the toss.

By the third evening and into the fourth, the same adjectives were applied to Australia's Steve Smith for declining to enforce the follow-on, having bowled out England 215 runs behind.

For cricket's sake, is it time to farewell the WACA?

A wide shot of the WACA Ground with spectators sitting on grass watching a ODI between Australia and South Africa under the sun.

As we prepare for the WACA Ground's Ashes swansong, it is clear the famous venue's best days are behind it. Serious doubts remain about the future of Western Australia's traditional home of cricket.

News came through this week of a fresh plan to redevelop the venue off the back of several failed ideas over the past decade.

There was the botched partnership with Ascot Capital announced in 2007, which included residential and commercial buildings being built around the ground.

It was abandoned in 2013 and cost WA cricket several million dollars.

There was also the 2015 proposal to share the WACA Ground with the West Australian Football Commission.

The plan was to co-locate with football and have both organisations training and administration facilities based there.

Stokes named in England ODI squad, pending brawl investigation

Ben Stokes remonstrates with Tamim Iqbal

Ben Stokes has been included in England's ODI squad for the series that follows the Ashes, but the all-rounder is still sweating on a decision from prosecutors.

Stokes, who last Sunday started playing cricket with New Zealand franchise Canterbury, remains unavailable for internationals but was named in a 16-man squad announced on Thursday.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is waiting to learn if he faces charges for a brawl outside a Bristol club that left another man with a fractured eye socket.

"Selectors were given clear guidance to name their strongest squad and have made their selections accordingly," the ECB said in a statement.

"Both Alex Hales and Ben Stokes are included, though their involvement remains subject to any relevant legal or disciplinary developments in...

Mitch Marsh is back, but does his recall make sense?

Mitch Marsh walks off
Related Story: Mitch Marsh added to Perth Test squad, a chance for Ashes return

It's fast becoming one of Australian cricket's most worn out debates, but here we are again — one of the Marsh brothers is in an Australian Test squad, and everyone's head is falling off.

The Aussie selectors, perhaps buoyed by the dramatic about-face the public was forced to undertake after Shaun belted a glorious century in Adelaide, have only gone and brought Mitch into the 13-man squad for the third Test in Perth.

Of course, this is no guarantee he will play. Indeed, Australia would probably prefer to remain unchanged through the entirety of the series if it could help it.

But the desire for an all-rounder as cover — especially as Peter Handscomb's work at the crease has...

The Ashes: Cricket in the twilight zone - The Sydney Morning Herald

Twilight Test cricket is not going to go away, the way rain doesn't. The effect of twilight on the way the game is played won't easily be mitigated, the way the effect of rain on pitches could not be helped, until some bright spark decided to put covers on them.

So it is best that cricketers learn to work creatively with the vagaries of this new element the way cricketers of yore schemed to exploit so-called sticky wickets.

Rookie skipper praised for selfless act - cricket.com.au

Rookie my FootDr Queensland Bulls captain Jimmy Peirson has selflessly denied himself a shot at a maiden first-class century by declaring just short of three figures in order for his side to chase victory.

Peirson, who was a shock appointment as Bulls captain late last month, moved to a career-best score of 82 not out late on day three of the JLT Sheffield Shield clash against the West End Redbacks in Cairns.

LIVE SCORECARD: Queensland v South Australia

Despite being just 18 runs short of what would have been his first hundred at domestic level, Peirson decided to pull the pin on his side's innings when teammate Joe Burns posted a double-century.

"I said to him 'do you want to get your hundred?' and he said 'nope, not to the detriment of the team'," Burns, who finished unbeaten on 202, said after play.

Brilliant Burns posts maiden double century

"So full credit to Jimmy. That's a...

Mitch Marsh tipped for Test squad recall - cricket.com.au

Allrounder Mitchell Marsh has been tipped to be added to Australia's 13-man squad for the final three Magellan Ashes Tests as the hosts look to secure the series and reclaim the urn.

Australia took a 2-0 series lead on the fifth afternoon in Adelaide having played an unchanged XI in the first two Test matches.

Australia had named a 13-man squad for the first two Tests only, with Chadd Sayers' inclusion specifically called out for Adelaide. As it turned out, the South Australia seamer wasn't required for the day-night Test, and could make way with the three remaining Tests on more batter-friendly surfaces.

Day wrap: Australia storm to 2-0 series lead

Former Australia quick Jason Gillespie said a fourth bowler who could support the front-line quicks could be vital.

"I said after the first two Test matches the Australians will maybe add someone to their squad, possibly...
