    Didn't the whole thing begin later with the final test on Australia day?

    It's been gradually getting later and later. Used to be on New Years Day, then got moved to the 2nd, then for the some reason the 3rd . . . and now the 4th?

    I don't like it

    I don't have a recollection of it ever being on the 1st in my cricketing lifetime. From the mid 90's onwards it was on the 2nd (the Michael Bevan OD game did happen around this time on New Year's day at the SCG) and then it got moved to the 3rd for the recovery day thing. I assume it's on the 4th this year because CA has a weird fetish about games starting on Thursdays

    the other possible reason for changing the date could be because mcgrath's charity is celebrating it's 10 year anniversary and the actual jane mcgrath day thing happens on day 3 of the match, so maybe they wanted it on a Saturday rather than a Friday...?

    Yeah I was gonna say I'm sure the 2010/11 series had the Sydney Test start on the 3rd for the first time.

    It will also overlap with the SA-India match, which makes it all the more annoying. Oh well, I guess we can waste all of Saturday and Sunday watching cricket, no time overlap.

    Or do the sensible thing and simply watch SA v India.

    Either way, you'll be watching foreigners getting abused.

    This video reminds me of that experience.

    I was rather hoping for some 'competitive' cricket.

    Have a vague memory of the Sydney test starting New Years day.


    Adelaide used to be on Australia Day weekend back when there used to be full tours

    I am not liking either of the new year's new dates. Sydney the 4th and cape town only 5th...
