  • Pathan reprimanded following ICC Code of Conduct Breach

    Indian fast bowler Irfan Pathan has been reprimanded for a breach of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Code of Conduct following a gesture towards Australian batsman Damien Martyn in the deciding VB Series final at the Sydney Cricket Ground

  • Imperious Australia crush India by 208 runs

    Matthew Hayden set the tone, Andrew Symonds delivered the knockout punch, and the bowlers added insult to injury as Australia romped to an emphatic 208-run victory
