1) Australians no doubt play the best cricket among all the other cricke playing nations and the control the cricket matches right from the start. Now they are trying to control how the ICC works. They first called for doing away with Super Sub rule, which seems to be gone very soon, and now Ricky Ponting has called for taking away the test status of teams like Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
I can understand that it will be hard for such a great team of Australia to motivate themselves for a match against Bangladesh, but they should not forget the lost a One day match against them last year, and there will be a day when they will loose a test match to the team from whom they are trying to snatch the Test Status!! Read what Ricky has to say....
Here is the score card of the match that Bangladesh beat Australia in an ODI match at Cardiff in Natwest series, in 2005..

3) After Indian Coach Greg Chappell's comments on Shoaib Akhtar's bowling action, Pakistani coach has joined in by saying that Sachin is past his prime (Read his comments). Seems like he don't doesn't know that they lost the 4th ODI at Multan and also the ODI series..
4) New Zealand won the twenty20 match against West Indies at Auckland. And how they won it - through "Bowl - off". If you are wondering what is "bowl-off" in cricket, let me correct you that its related to twenty20 cricket, not the conventional cricket we all know. In bowl-off, 5 bowlers from both the teams bowl 2 balls each to hit the stumps, that in case of a tied twenty20 match. The team with most hits of stumps, wins, and in the above case, New Zealand won. See the score card..
