9 January 2018 6:30 AM No Ashes baggage for English ODI squad, says Sam Billings

Only six members of England's ODI squad played in the Ashes – Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Jake Ball, Chris Woakes and Tom Curran. "Most of us haven't got the baggage of the Ashes so we're fresh, raring to go," Billings said. "It's a very different group, only a few players are still overlapping from the Test squad. For us, we're seeing it as a completely 12

8 January 2018 6:05 AM Ashes 2017-18: England captain Joe Root unable to finish Ashes Test after hospital admission

Joe Root may very well be the first England captain to be asleep while an Australian skipper has lifted an Ashes trophy. After an unpleasant and sleepless night of vomiting and diarrhoea, Root's absence from the post match presentation on the turf of the SCG characterised England's horror series that went from bad to worse. Water works: Hydration was all-important 16

4 January 2018 3:35 AM Ashes 2017-18 live: Fifth Test, day one, live from the SCG

Pat Cummins digs one in and gets the breakthrough for the Australians, with Tim Paine taking a simple catch behind. Despite an audacious attempt at a drive first ball, Stoneman looked relatively assured at the crease. He hit two on-drives for four - something the hosts wouldn't have minded so early in his innings. It took 29 balls for England's openers 38

3 January 2018 5:11 AM Big Bash 2018: David Warner slams Graeme Swann's commentary as a waste of money

Australia would go on to win the 2013/14 Ashes in a 5-0 whitewash, with Warner scoring more runs than any other player, and posting two centuries. This is not the first time Warner has clashed with an England player off the field - he was in an altercation with Joe Root in a Birmingham nightclub in 2013, later saying that he felt the current England 25

28 December 2017 8:28 AM Ashes 2017/18: Australia in double trouble as Alastair Cook bats and bats and bats

The visitors were 9/491 at stumps on the third day, a lead of 164, after Cook defied Australia for more than 10 and a half hours to be unbeaten on 244, his fifth double century. His knock has bettered the previous best by an overseas player at the venue set by West Indies great Viv Richards, who made 208 in 1984. The pressure is now on Australia, who are paying 31

28 December 2017 6:02 AM Ashes 2017-2018: Alastair Cook drives England ahead of Aussies

Unbeaten centurion Alastair Cook has built a 33-run lead for England at the MCG, where the visitors reached 6-360 at tea on day three of the fourth Ashes Test. Cook resumed on 104 on Thursday, with England 2-192. The former skipper was 173 not out at the end of the day's second session, having batted with trademark patience to frustrate Australia on a slow pitch 38

What a note to finish day two on. Alastair Cook scored a crucial hundred for his own career and England's fortunes for the rest of this Ashes series. Cook is 104 not out with captain Joe Root unbeaten on 49 as England finish the day 2-192. Undoubtedly it was England's day. They knocked over Australia for 327 this morning after Steve Smith threatened 38

26 December 2017 6:43 AM 2017 Ashes MCG Test: Day 1 live from Melbourne

Essentially Australia have the slight upper hand in what has been a fairly dour and even opening day of the Boxing Day Test. Undoubtedly the highlight was the dramatic 41st over, bowled by English debutant Tom Curran. He looked to have taken his maiden Test wicket when he managed to get David Warner, on 99, to misjudge one and spoon a catch to mid-wicket 45

"That will be it," Lehmann told Fox Sports in an interview on Christmas Day. "For me, I've had a great time and really enjoyed the role and [I'm] loving it still. The former Test batsman last year extended his contract 49
