Can India do a 2018 again? It's the question everyone's asking as the first Test gets underway in Adelaide against an Australia determined to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Meanwhile New Zealand's top form continues after their 2-0 defeat of West Indies in Tests, and now it's Pakistan at the receiving end in the T20I series. The LPL has wound up its remarkable inaugural season just as the BBL's building steam and teams are figuring out how to best turn the new rule changes to their advantage. It's building up to be an exciting end to 2020, at least in cricket, and there's a fair bit to catch up on, so get stuck in.
Debutant Jacob Duffy and Tim Seifert the difference as New Zealand guts it past Pakistan
It was a fast bowler's game as Pakistan took on New Zealand in the first T20I and came up short, despite a fight back by Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf. Debutant Duffy finished with 4 for 33, the best figures by a New Zealand bowler on debut. Pakistan seemed to keenly feel the loss of main man Babar Azam, who injured his thumb last week and had to sit out the T20I series - and Danyal Rasool was just wondering what Azam's team would do without him. Also a non-performer in this match was Mohammad Hafeez, who, at least before this match, picked this year to become a T20 giant, as Osman Samiuddin notes.

The first of Australia's four Tests against India has kicked off in Adelaide - Varun Shetty busts some myths and lays down some facts about day-night Tests - and some key battles have already begun. Andrew McGlashan maps the ones to watch and weighs up the two squads. How will Australia's makeshift opening pair cope in the absence of David Warner? And can India lean on Cheteshwar Pujara once Virat Kohli goes on paternity leave?

Mohammad Amir retires from international cricket claiming 'mental torture'
