Virat Kohli declared an all-out spin war against Australia

While Australia captain Steve Smith is already focusing on Kuldeep in the first game, Kohli hinted at unleashing two wrist spinners in Chennai.Kuldeep made an instant impression against Australia, taking four wickets in his Test debut in India's series-clinching win in Dharamsala this year. The 22-year-old Kuldeep is likely to pair up with Chahal at the MA Chidambaram Stadium with left-arm spinner Axar Patel nursing a sprained ankle.
"It is a great advantage to have two wrist spinners in your team, especially when both are so different to each other and both can pick up wickets in the middle overs," Kohli said Saturday.Australia called in local left-arm wrist spinner KK Jiyas, who played for Delhi in the Indian Premier League, to help prepare for Kuldeep's guile during net practice in Chennai. "They're different (left-arm wrist spinners) so it's good to be able to get someone who bowls a bit of that," Smith told reporters earlier.

We didn't execute as well as we'd have liked

England captain Eoin Morgan says: "Bowling at a pair like Lewis and Gayle was a huge opportunity to test ourselves and we didn't bowl that well. But we were happy chasing what we did, losing three wickets when we did, then Jos and Jonny having to rebuild,
I think that cost us. They have full power to push the button and take it on. [Form?] It's always a concern, I don't know when I'm in or out of form. I'm looking forward to the one-day series. [Poor bowling up front] We didn't execute, just come out of playing Championship cricket; and the challenge of bowling to two very good players."

Canberra will host the final two matches of the Women's Ashes

A sell-out crowd at Manuka Oval for the business end of the Commonwealth Bank Women’s Ashes is “well and truly a possibility” in November, says Cricket Australia Chief Executive James Sutherland. The two final matches of the multi-format Ashes – two Twenty20 fixtures – will be played in Canberra on November 19 and 21.

The women's Ashes matches are the only internationals to be played in Canberra this summer. The ground will also host the Prime Minister’s XI clash with England on February 2, while Manuka Oval is set to host its maiden Test match in the 2018-19 summer. Last month, ACT Cricket chief Cameron French said the Women’s Ashes presented Canberra with the chance to set the benchmark for the game all across the country with strong crowds.

Five members of the ACT's national title-winning team will feature in the ICWC

Australia skipper Steve Smith has thrown his support behind the nation’s Indoor Cricket teams, as they prepare to commence their 2017 World Indoor Cricket Federation World Cup campaign on Saturday. The Australians will be out to maintain their status as world champions after clean-sweeping the four divisions at the 2014 World Cup in New Zealand, and Smith - a former indoor cricketer in his junior days - hopes Australia can continue that trend.
"I hope that Australia can win again across the four categories – men’s, women’s under-21 men’s and under-21 women’s – but I also hope the World Cup will be a great advert for the sport and one that will take indoor cricket to the next level,” Australia skipper Steve Smith said.
