Australia warning on women militants

Australia warning on women militants

Up to 40 Australian women have taken part in terror attacks or are supporting militant groups, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has said. She told parliament an increasing number of women were going to Syria and Iraq to join husbands fighting with Islamic State (IS) or marry a militant. Dozens of Australian nationals are thought to...

Best possible start for Tigers

Bangladesh couldn't have asked for a better start to the World Cup, could they? The proverbial monkey out of their back in the very first game and the ominous prospect of facing Australia at the Gabba washed out by Cyclone Marcia, the Tigers now sit in third position in Pool A, ahead of Sri Lanka, England, Afghanistan and Scotland. And they will stay there till the morning of February 26, regardless of what happens in the other games in...

No play, so no pay!

As soon as the match was abandoned yesterday afternoon, Bangladeshi journalists gathered their belongings from the press box and rushed towards the field at the Brisbane Cricket Ground, the Gabba, hoping to catch a quote or two from the players. On days such as this, when there is no match to write about, the players' reaction becomes 'gold'. And while most of us were busy getting prepared, the Australian journalists seemed least bothered with regards to a possible post-match interaction....

Mash would've loved to play

Mash would've loved to play

Breakfast tables at the Sofitel hotel showed Brisbane's day yesterday. Dashing opener David Warner looked to have all the time in the world to have his breakfast. The left-hander was seen having fun with his little son as if time was never an issue. Shane Watson and some other Australia players were also...

Collingwood warns England

Collingwood warns England

England's dreadful start to the World Cup could yet get worse, says Scotland assistant coach Paul Collingwood. England has suffered heavy back-to-back defeats by Australia and New Zealand to leave them bottom of Pool A. They face Scotland in Christchurch on Monday and Collingwood says Scotland pose them a significant threat. "There's real confidence and belief...

Pace will be imperative

Pace will be imperative

Bangladesh's bowling performance against Afghanistan showed just how important pace bowling could be in this World Cup and its importance will be amplified when they play Australia in their next game at the Gabba, which is traditionally one of Australia's quickest pitches. Mashrafe Bin Mortaza once again displayed what we know he is capable of against Afghanistan in the opening match. Rubel Hossain and young Taskin Ahmed provided their captain with ample support. However, the Aussies pose a much bigger challenge than the Afghans, boasting the likes of David Warner, Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and captain Michael Clarke, who is set to play his first match of this World Cup...

Australia hit by powerful storm

Australia hit by powerful storm

Two major storms have slammed into Australia, bringing winds that have knocked out power to homes and forced evacuations in coastal areas. Tropical Cyclone Marcia hit the Queensland coast between St Lawrence and Yeppoon. Arriving as a Category Five storm, it has now been downgraded to a Three but forecasters are warning of heavy rain...

Bangladesh-Australia match under cyclone threat

Bangladesh-Australia match under cyclone threat

Australia's World Cup Pool A match with Bangladesh on Saturday could be called off if a cyclone hovering north of Brisbane hits the city. Michael Clarke missed the 111-run win over England at the weekend as he continued his recovery from a hamstring injury. But Cyclone Marcia may also scupper Australia's plan to bring their captain back into the team at the weekend. Should the fixture be abandoned the two sides could have to share the points. The storm has already forced evacuations of coastal communities in Queensland and heavy rain is forecast in Brisbane over the next few days.

The Mashrafe effect

It's a funny game this. Until Tuesday, all that was spoken of was how the Tigers needed to gain mental strength after losing four consecutive warm-up matches in Australia. Following their win yesterday though, social media was filled with posts highlighting Bangladesh's sixth consecutive ODI win and how this was in fact their second longest winning streak. A quick shift in emotions in this nation's cricketing arena is nothing new. But what it does go on to reiterate is how important...
