England's T20 debate

In the world of the Big Bash

Jan 14, 2015: Youngsters are out in force and when they are not playing video games or doing Mexican waves, some are even watching the cricket

Australia v India, 4th Test, Sydney, 3rd day

Australia have beaten India, but not Kohli

Jan 8, 2015: Virat Kohli sledges, he celebrates aggressively, he stares, he gets angry - with his team and the opposition - but at the end of it all he's scored a mountain of runs and refuses to be beaten by Australia

Australia v India, 4th Test, Sydney, 1st day

India lacking in Test skills

Jan 6, 2015: The amount of T20 cricket India play has left most of their batsmen unable to compile big Test innings and their bowlers unable to produce multiple spells of accurate bowling away from home

Australia v India, 3rd Test, Melbourne, 4th day

Did Australia win the wrong way?

Dec 30, 2014: With a 2-0 lead, Australia only had to play risk-free cricket on the fifth day at the MCG to win the series. They achieved victory, but did they take caution too far?

No fear, the Australian tail is here

Dec 29, 2014: Since the 2009 Ashes, several poor Australian performances have been masked by their bowlers, who have had to do both their job as well as that of their batsmen

From waterboy to warrior

Dec 28, 2014: Ajinkya Rahane was part of India's bench strength for several series before he finally got his opportunity. He's made it count on the most testing tours

Australia v India, 2nd Test, Brisbane, 4th day

Kicking, screaming, scrapping India

Dec 20, 2014: India are losing, but they are making Australia win. They are losing, but they are aggressive. They are attacking, until there is nothing left to attack. One shot, one bouncer and one sentence at a time

The evolution of Steven Smith

Dec 19, 2014: From someone whom the Australian management and fans didn't really know what to do with, to the captain of his country, Steven Smith has come a long way

Monster Johnson goes missing

Dec 18, 2014: Perhaps it is the death of Phillip Hughes, perhaps it is the heat, perhaps it is the absence of Ryan Harris, but Mitchell Johnson is not as scary as he used to be

Australia v India, 1st Test, Adelaide, 5th day

The perfect Test

Dec 13, 2014: After the tragedy of Phillip Hughes' death, this match showed that cricket and life will continue to go on. This time Test cricket dug in and got through to tea.

The terrifying bouncer

Dec 11, 2014: When Mitchell Johnson hit Virat Kohli on the helmet with a bouncer, Australian fielders came from everywhere. Mental disintegration had gone, replaced by the cricket unity. Two teams, one family.

Clarke broken but not beaten

Dec 10, 2014: The young Michael Clarke wouldn't recognise this broken old man. But he'd respect him. He'd want to be him, injury and all. Because Michael Clarke is now the hero he has wanted to be since he was born.

Australia v India, 1st Test, Adelaide, 1st day

The bouncer goes on

Dec 9, 2014: This Test couldn't really start until a bowler hit the middle of the pitch, until that first bouncer was bowled aggressively and handled safely. Because the bouncer belongs to cricket

Jarrod Kimber at Adelaide Oval

Australia v India, 1st Test, Adelaide

Mitchell Johnson's moral dilemma

Dec 6, 2014: To bounce or not to bounce? Fast bowling has been one of cricket's most high-profile arts but Phillip Hughes' death has shrouded the game in a different light. How will one of today's most menacing bowlers react?

The G at the end of the line

Nov 6, 2014: Go to Melbourne and the MCG will suck you in. It's not part of Melbourne, it is Melbourne

Flintoff almost relives the glory

Aug 23, 2014: Freddie Flintoff will always be a cricketing hero. As close as he came to conjuring up the NatWest Blast title for Lancashire, he was just a hero no longer in his time
