Australia and England prepare to ring changes

With less than a year to go before Australia prepare to set off for England in the hope of retaining the Ashes, both sides are beginning to plan for next year’s intriguing series.

2015 is set to be a big year, and betting companies such as Betfair, bet365 and the other big ones should expect to be busy with so many sporting events on next year’s calendar.

The Background
After surrendering the famous urn without so much as a fight at the end of 2013, that England team was all but dismantled in the wake of some embarrassing in-fighting and poor results.

AUSSIES UNCHANGED

The Australian cricket team is expected to go into the third Ashes test match with an unchanged playing XI. The Kangaroos have been leading the series by 2-0 at the moment. They have won the first two test matches by big margins and they are full of confidence.

Warner determined to clean up act….again

David Warner has once again insisted he is determined to clean up his act after yet another incident left him foul of the Australian Cricket authorities. The 26-year-old was hit with a one-match suspended ban by Cricket NSW earlier this week after he went to the races rather than playing for his club side.

Warne and Liz Come Under Fire

British actor Elizabeth Hurley has dismissed the claims made by Simone Callahan, the ex-wife of her fiancé, Aussie cricketing legend Shane Warne that she had been disrespectful of her and even denied the allegations that had been labeled on her with regards to her asking the children of Warne and Callahan to call her ‘Mummy Two’.

SRI LANKA HOPEFUL OF SHOCK WIN

Australia might have posted a big total in the first of the three test of the Commonwealth Bank Series against Sri Lanka but the Sri Lankan players almost managed to get there, and would have pulled off an unlikely win had it not been for a last minute collapse.

The confidence that this chase had put in the Lankan players was evident by the way they approached the second match against The Aussies, who are seemingly always victorious in their own Backyard.

WHITE CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE

Cameron White’s international career appears to be dead and buried, and his state playing career could also be in danger if his form with the bat does not improve in the near future.

His batting form of late has simply been atrocious, with initially his slump only being on the international stage, but now the runs have dried up in state cricket too.

Despite all of this, White will still go on to earn a huge amount of money from this year’s IPL, even though many England players have been unable to earn any IPL contracts at all.

TENDULKAR JUST WANTS A WIN

Although almost all cricket lovers are waiting eagerly for the moment, legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar is not thinking about his 100th ton.

The Master Blaster, on the other hand, would rather enjoy his time playing the game than burden himself with the milestone or talk about the hype that this landmark has been gathering over the last few months.

Warne makes a losing return to cricket

Shane Warne’s return to cricket ended in defeat after his Melbourne Stars team crashed to a six-wicket defeat against Sydney Thunder.

The leg-spinner, who retired earlier this year, made a negligible contribution to his side’s efforts conceding 19 runs in two overs without taking a wicket, while his services with the bat were not required.

AUSTRALIA FIRM ON FIXING

Australian Cricket's Chief Executive could be forgiven for thinking that the battle had been won against the match-fixers when the Pakistan captain and his teammates were sentenced and charged with fixing certain elements of the game, but CEO James Sutherland has insisted that the battle has only just begun.
