Cricket News sort by England tour of Australia 2013 - 14

36 is an age at which most cricketers are contemplating retirement, and planning to move on to something else in life.

At the start of the Ashes last month, not many would have bet on Australia being 2-0 following the second Test at Adelaide

It has been nearly ten days since England succumbed to Australia at the Gabba, Brisbane. Not a lot has happened since, except for Jonathan Trott being ruled out of the series owing to a stress-related illness and few England players getting into some kind of form in the practice match that followed.

Jonathan Trott’s decision to quit the ongoing Ashes series after just the first Test at The Gabba, Brisbane is a big blow to the visiting England side.

So, we can hope for a close Ashes encounter after all. The signs were not too encouraging when the series kicked off on day one at the Gabba, Brisbane, with the Aussie top and middle order collapsing in a heap.

Left-arm seamer Mitchell Johnson is quite an enigma of Australian cricket. Having made his Test debut back in 2007 and having featured in over 50 Tests, he is among the most experienced members of the squad.

Having reduced Australia to 273 for 8 on the opening day of The Ashes Test at The Gabba, Brisbane, England would have hoped to consolidate on Day 2.
