    Have I turned over two pages at once here?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Probably either NZ or SL, possibly WI. Dont really have much choice, those three teams usually get early summer billing, along with Pakistan. Last summer was odd in that we've never had both WI and Pak touring here for tests in the same summer before. Always going to be an issue anyway, we cant rely on SA, India and England being strong and coming here for Boxing Day. But, we are hardly in the top tier now anyway so maybe we deserve a lower ranked team for our big xmas/new year tests!

    SA don't want to tour Australia at boxing day anymore as they plan on making it a traditional game for them at home. Hence asking who will replace them for some boxing day tests.

    SL would certainly be better than NZ or WI. There were pretty good crowds last time SL played a Boxing Day test, well more than I expected anyway, seeing as they were a minnow back then.

    He didnt have many fans then! well maybe after day 1 of that test he got a few.....the hype was all Aravinda before that series, and he sure failed to deliver quite spectacularly.

    NZ playing the Boxing Day Test would be awesome. I just wish we had our own Boxing Day Test

    3 years.

    Recent series between both sides could have been hosted in the Republic as well but the PCB wanted road warfare instead.

    No. South Africa have told Australia they won't be touring Australia over Christmas, as Australia have refused to do it for them.
