Ashes to Bashes – Too much cricket or never enough?


ANOTHER Ashes series is just weeks away. A much anticipated KFC T20 Big Bash season is also upon us, and this time it’s free on our TVs. 

Then there’s the ICC One Day International World Cup that’s just around the corner.

While there is much to look forward to on the Australian cricket calendar, there are big challenges as well. 

The Australian team is in a rebuilding phase after a generation of dominance, and fans are impatient. Some are saying the cricket calendar is just too crowded.

What does cricket's future hold? Can it maintain its position as Australia's leading national game?

The event featured a deep discussion on Australian cricket with Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland, former Australian captain turned talent identification specialist Greg Chappell plus sporting scribe Greg Baum moderated by sportscaster Tiffany Cherry.
