Australia make two changes for second ODI | cricket.com.au - cricket.com.au

Australia have made two changes to their XI for the second one-day international on their Qantas Tour of India, with leg-spinner Adam Zampa and allrounder James Faulkner dropped and left-arm tweaker Ashton Agar and seamer Kane Richardson coming into the side.

India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first on an overcast afternoon in Kolkata.

Agar has been named to play his first ODI in more than two years, his recall coming after he returned to the Test side on the recent Test tour of Bangladesh.

AUSTRALIA XI: Steven Smith (c), David Warner, Hilton Cartwright, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson.

INDIA XI: Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit...

Aussies struggle in sapping Kolkata heat | cricket.com.au - cricket.com.au

Australia's players have battled in temperatures exceeding 40 degrees in the second ODI against India in Kolkata.

After a week of wet weather in West Bengal, the sun finally appeared on Thursday and an 'apparent temperature' of 42 degrees Celsius was reported by mid-afternoon. An 'apparent temperature' or 'heat index' measures the temperature felt by the skin rather than just a standard temperature reading and factors in things like humidity and radiation from the sun.

LIVE: INDIA v AUSTRALIA, SECOND ODI

Having been asked to field first by home skipper Virat Kohli, Aussie fast bowlers Patrick Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile left the field to rest and recover after both delivered four-over opening spells.

Recalled quick Kane Richardson also needed some attention and fluids from team support staff during his spell and spent several moments at the end of each over with his head bowed...

Pandya survives bizarre no-ball situation - cricket.com.au

India's Hardik Pandya has been given not out despite being caught and run out from the same delivery in a bizarre incident in the second ODI against Australia in Kolkata.

Midway through the 48th over of India's innings at Eden Gardens, Pandya skied a full toss from Kane Richardson straight up in the air and Steve Smith took a comfortable catch running back from cover.

SECOND ODI - INDIA V AUSTRALIA

Having run down to the bowler's end as he watched Smith take the catch, Pandya then turned and walked out of his ground and towards the pavilion in the belief that he had been caught.

Perhaps sensing that Pandya might earn a reprieve due to the ball being ruled a waist-high no-ball, Smith yelled out to Richardson and threw the ball to the bowler, who removed the bails and ran Pandya out.

But when replays showed the ball had reached Pandya above the waist on the full, and was correctly...

Young guns named in CA XI | cricket.com.au - cricket.com.au

Former Test batsman and CA high performance coach Matthew Elliott will guide the Cricket Australia XI – a collection of the country’s exciting young talent – in the upcoming JLT One-Day Cup.

The CA XI will feature players from all six state squads, including four who have previous JLT Sheffield Shield or JLT One-Day Cup experience, six members of the 2017 National Performance Squad are and three young stars who have played for Australia Under 19s this year.

“There is some real talent with this group, and we believe the players in this squad will benefit enormously from the opportunity to compete against the best players in Australia,” Cricket Australia’s National Talent Manager Greg Chappell said.

“Henry Thornton is coming back from some injury issues, and he’s a very exciting prospect. He has been clocked bowling at similar speeds to Brett Lee at the same age.

Healy lashes out at 'stone age' criticism | cricket.com.au - cricket.com.au

Let’s have a chat about women’s sport, or if you don’t mind, I am just going to refer to it as sport.

Sport is such a huge part of our Australian culture and has been for a very long time.

When I was growing up (yes it wasn’t that long ago) my favourite cricketer was Ricky Ponting, my favourite footy players were Terry Lamb and Tony Lockett and my favourite soccer player was Lucas Neill.

You want to know why? Because they were what I could see on TV. Sport for me was for "blokes", it was all about being covered in dirt and sweat and then cracking a beer after the game in your jocks, because that is what I saw on the telly.

What is the Women's Ashes?

As a young girl playing every sport under the Australian sun, I never saw an opportunity for me to play all these sports at the elite level, let alone with other girls. I thought I was destined to play with the boys forever!

But my Dad...

The 'pie' that capped KP's magical Test - cricket.com.au

It's a match that represented the peak of his international career, featuring an innings that put England on the path to a drought-breaking Ashes series victory abroad, but the 2010 Adelaide Oval Test was also host to one of Kevin Pietersen's most memorable moments with the ball.

And one Michael Clarke would rather forget.

After putting the finishing touches on a career-best 227 to give England to a mammoth 375-run lead earlier on day four, Pietersen might have been forgiven for thinking he'd done more than enough to help the tourists' cause in the second Test.

Double delight: Pietersen celebrates his 200 // GettyDouble delight: Pietersen celebrates his 200 // Getty

But with Stuart Broad going down with what would later be confirmed as a tour-ending abdominal injury and Graeme Swann tiring following a marathon spell with stumps in sight on the game's penultimate day, Andrew Strauss turned to Pietersen.   

While the Pietermaritzburg-born...

Cummins eyes long-awaited home debut - cricket.com.au

It's been six years in the making and luckless fast bowler Pat Cummins is finally allowing himself to believe that a first Test match on home soil will soon be his.

Cummins took another step towards finally achieving that goal this summer when it was announced on Friday he would skip the T20 leg of Australia's Qantas Tour of India. The right-armer will head home on Monday week so he can have three full weeks of rest before the start of the JLT Sheffield Shield season and then the Magellan Ashes in late November.

After six frustrating years of major injury setbacks since his memorable Test debut in Johannesburg in 2011, Cummins has ironically been Australia's fast bowling ironman this year while Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and James Pattinson have all been sidelined due to injury.

And unless the unfathomable scenario of another injury strikes in the next two months, the right-armer...

Real Rubel stands up after bizarre mix-up - cricket.com.au

Fast bowler Rubel Hossain flew out to join Bangladesh's tour of South Africa on Friday after his departure was delayed by a bizarre case of mistaken identity involving a look-a-like namesake with a criminal record.

Rubel departed nearly a week late after officials proved he was not the unknown man barred by South African authorities, who had the same name, similar personal details and looked identical in his photo.

"We received (from South African authorities) a photo, name and other information and all these things completely matched with Rubel though the person was different," Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan told reporters.

"(The person) they had banned was not our player Rubel. 

"There was a similar kind of person whose name, date of birth and all other information were similar, which confused them."

County cricket: Essex stun Hampshire and Sangakkara signs off for Surrey - The Guardian

The Champion County, Essex, secured their ninth and most remarkable win of their special summer and, in doing so, thrust their victims Hampshire – who were bowled out for 76 to lose by 108 runs – into a relegation scrap.

Sam Cook, the 20-year-old swing bowler, took his maiden five-wicket haul to inflict on Hampshire their lowest total since 1984. Hampshire therefore need 12 points against Warwickshire to secure their survival ahead of seventh-placed Somerset, who lost to Surrey in Kumar Sangakkara’s final match at The Oval. Yorkshire thrillingly beat Warwickshire by two wickets, and are 18 points ahead of Somerset.

Essex themselves had been bowled out for 76 in the first innings and invited to follow on 178 behind – Hampshire have lost in such fashion just three times before – and were only 94 in front when they lost their eighth second innings wicket. But Neil Wagner and James...

Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins will head home after the one-day international series against India, pulling out of the upcoming T20Is to freshen up before the Ashes.

Cummins's body has stood up under a heavy workload this year, playing four Tests, a dozen ODIs and the IPL.

After playing in gruelling conditions in Bangladesh and India, Cummins will be spared from playing in the three T20Is which follow the five ODIs.

The tourists lost by 50 runs in Kolkata to go down 2-0 to India in the ODI series.

Cummins has continued to impress in India, overcoming stifling heat to bowl at more...
