Well, I can't choose what quote to put forward as bait for you to go HERE to read a bucket of Australian cricket news and events, but take it from me it is all worth reading if you're a cricket nut. Ricky Ponting on Michael Clarke, discussions of Aussie batting and curators, Cricketer of the Week, tweet of the week, etc. Off the oval but all to the point.
