Match Notes

  • Paine opens up on mental battle

    Tim Paine looked destined to be Australia's future wicketkeeper, but now he is just grateful to be playing any cricket after a serious finger injury which put his career in doubt

  • Introducing Australia AA

    Cricket Australia has fielded two Australia A sides in the same week, including one player who was sent home from the first tour because of injury, only to play for the other squad back in Australia

  • Kieswetter ton resurrects Lions

    Is there a cleaner striker of a ball in English cricket than Craig Kieswetter? Those who watched him make 112 not out on the second day of the England Lions game against Australia A at Edgbaston might find it hard to believe so.

  • Growing Root soaks up lessons

    Another rainy day in a wet summer hasn't stunted the growth of Yorkshire opening batsman Joe Root

  • Cowan and Harris share honours in even battle

    Two cricketers dominated the evenly-balanced opening day of the second unofficial Test match between England Lions and Australia A at Edgbaston
