2017/18 The Ashes Preview
This is such an important series for Australia, history and the prestige of the Ashes aside. This side has had a turbulent second half of 2017, with the pay dispute dragging the sport through the mud and a large portion of fans getting offside with the players. But, that’s settled and now it’s onto more important business. The squad selection has shocked many, namely the inclusion of Tim Paine, who hasn’t played for Australia since 2010 and hasn’t even been keeping for Tasmania. The regulars are there, while eye brows were raised when Shaun Marsh, at 34, was picked, once again, despite seemingly failing the baggy green every time he wears it. The Gabba test often finishes in day four or the morning of day five, and generally Australian sides like to set the tone and bat first.
As for England, their fate really is in the hands of the Bristol Police and Ben Stokes. The all rounder found himself splashed across all media outlets via a video which saw him punch a patron and flattened the guy to the ground. If cleared, he’ll likely miss the first two tests. He is such an important player for the Poms given his skill with the bat and ball as well as what he brings passion wise. The other key player is Alastair Cook. He has had a mixed bag in the last two Ashes Series down under. In the 2010/11 Series win, he hit 766 runs off seven innings. Fast forward to the disastrous 5-0 sweep in 2013/14 and he only scored 246 off ten innings, with Mitchell Johnson wreaking havoc. Problem for Cook is that there is another Mitchell firing for Australia- Mitchell Starc. His recent double hatrick for NSW in the Sheffield Shield would have sounded out an ominous warning for the England batting line up, and fortunately you can find this exciting Cricket Australia series free to air in your city or state.

New Zealand v South Africa 2017 Preview
The cricket continues for New Zealand as they host South Africa for all forms of the game, starting off with a T20 Cricket fixture at Eden Park before a five game ODI Series and then the tour ends with a three match Test Series, beginning on March 8 at University Oval. South Africa kind of lost their way a bit towards the end of their tour of Australia, but they went back home and produced some very good cricket against Sri Lanka and look in good form ahead of this tour, and you can stream Cricket in Australia live with the Foxtel Go app.
New Zealand toured South Africa in the middle part of 2015, losing the ODI Series 2-1 before South Africa went on to win the two Test Series 1-0, aided by some brilliant bowling from Dale Steyn and unbelievable batting from AB de Villiers, who has been away from the game for some time but is back to lead South Africa on the tour of New Zealand.

Australia vs New Zealand Preview
Recent results suggest that New Zealand will be hard to beat in front of their home fans after defeating Australia in this corresponding series last year 2-1, but the Aussies got their revenge in the Test Series with a dominant 2-0 win. Australia’s early form had been patchy in the Test and ODI Series against South Africa, but they were dominant against Pakistan, giving them confidence for this upcoming Series before jetting to India. New Zealand are very hard to beat at home, and Australia have struggled in front of the kiwi fans, as we saw in the World Cup of Cricket where they couldn’t handle the pressure and were reduced to a low total.
First ODI: January 30, Eden Park
Second ODI: February 2, McLean Park
Third ODI: February 5, Seddon Park
The keys to Australia will be captain Steve Smith, who had an outstanding 2016 and has followed it up already in a short space of time in 2017. His grittiness with the bat will be essential to success, as will the pace and swing of Mitchell Starc, who has caused absolute havoc against New Zealand in recent times, famously knocking off former captain Brendon McCullum in the first over of the 2015 World Cup Final. If he can consistently bowl 145km with accuracy, then Australia will go a long way towards victory.
