We've got back to back ashes; the champions trophy; a number of bi-lateral ODI series squeezed into the schedule; South Africa trying to consolidate their no.1 test status against Pakistan; India trying to salvage something at home against Australia; and New Zealand trying not to become inconsequential in international cricket with home and away series against England.
Ashes Series 1-1, Home advantage counting. Mitchell Johnson to win a couple of tests to the delight of everybody on CW.
Champions Trophy winners England make best use of home conditions
Michael Clarke's back crumbling under the pressure of carrying Australia's batting
New Zealand to fall further into all time lows over all 3 formats
Sachin to retire after a miserable tour against Australia. India come out on top anyway with the inexperienced Aussie batting struggling against spin.
