  • Queensland Cricket rides on Ashes fortune

    Queensland Cricket (QC) has posted a record profit for the 2006-07 financial year, due in no small part to last year's Ashes Test at the Gabba

  • In the shoes of Bradman

    In the haze of Australia's failure to enforce the follow-on in the first Test it was easy to lose sight of the brilliant quality of Ricky Ponting's batting

  • 'We played Warne very well' - Fletcher

    Duncan Fletcher believes the way his batsmen countered Shane Warne at the Gabba will be a big boost for the remainder of the series

  • Lee ready to get a grip on England

    Brett Lee is confident he will not suffer the same problems with his delivery stride in Adelaide as he looks to improve on a disappointing first Test

  • Give Harmy a break

    Tim de Lisle justifies why Steve Harmison should be rested for Adelaide
