Australia captain Michael Clarke is confident that his side can still win the first Ashes Test against England at Trent Bridge despite having only four second-innings wickets remaining in pursuit of a target of 311.
Following day three of the first Ashes Test at Trent Bridge, England's Kevin Pietersen and Australia's Peter Siddle spoke to the media, reviewing the key points of an enthralling and at times controversial day.
Pakistan head coach Dav Whatmore says his side will show more fight when they take on the West Indies in five One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals beginning later this month.
He is very keen for Pakistan to put in an improved showing from the one that saw them limp out of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 without so much as winning one match.
In this cricket video interview, former England captain and 1981 Ashes-winning hero Sir Ian Botham talks about his experience of playing Australia. He talks about how they are the most competitive cricketers he has ever played against and how nice a feeling it is to win against them, something England will be trying to emulate when they take on Australia in the 2013 series which gets underway at Trent Bridge on 10th July.
An unusually busy summer for England, including them hosting the ICC Champions Trophy 2013, either side of which was sandwiched a series with New Zealand has kept Ashes talk off the players' minds until now. With the series set to get underway on Wednesday, 10th July, at Trent Bridge, fast bowlers Steven Finn and Stuart Broad took part in a press conference run by sponsors Investic to talk all things Ashes, England and Australia.
Leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed has today been awarded Australian citizenship, which would allow him to represent Australia in the upcoming Ashes series.
He travelled to the British Isles with the 'A' team last month but currently lies behind Nathan Lyon and Ashton Agar in the pecking order ahead of the five-match series.
