Tim Paine responds to Michael Clarke’s criticism of Australia’s new approach

He likes to let people know that he is a supporter of county cricket, a fact his colleagues will testify to and bemoan in equal quantities. And I think that's really what Michael would be trying to say - that it's about that competitive edge."I do know if we lose that, and even our great era of Australian cricket when we lost that edge - and I'm thinking back post the Test match against India here - and everyone was a bit punched by that incident and a bit anxious about "were we overstepping the mark?' and 'should we be playing the game in this sort of spirit?' we just started to play poorly".

Murali Vijay has all but locked down a spot in India's Test top order with a whirlwind century against a Cricket Australia XI at the SCG.

One of the main arguments cited during the recent push for Smith and Warner to play the second half of the Sheffield Shield season was that denying them first-class cricket in 2019 could have a knock-on effect regarding their hopes of Ashes selection. Till the time we get the results, we don't take anything lightly. Like we did past year against England, " he said. We play our best cricket when you're fighting.

How Trump Has Made Theresa May’s Brexit Deal an Even Tougher Sell
Labour Brexiteer Gisela Stuart also attacked the proposed line-up, saying it was limited to "two politicians who voted and campaigned for Remain".

Proceedings on Friday were overshadowed by an ankle injury suffered by young Prithvi Shaw, who landed awkwardly on his left leg whilst fielding early in the morning session, and has subsequently been ruled out of the first Test in Adelaide.

"I have played 11 years now so I don't need to think about what I need to do well". He was the first bowler to offer Kohli control after the rapid start by the CA XI and broke the opening stand when Bryant missed his charge. However, this remained the only amusing sight for the Indians on a tough day in Sydney.

"I thought the ball came out pretty well", Ashwin said. He's such a good player and the No.1 batter in the world. "In the next 4-5 days I will prep up a bit more for the game", he said. It took the speedster seven deliveries to get one yorker past the bat and onto the stumps of Coleman.

GM closing Lordstown assembly plant, cutting 14,700 jobs in North America
CEO Mary Barra is seeking to reposition GM for a future defined by self-driving cars, ride-sharing networks and electric vehicles. Sales for all GM cars and trucks declined 11 percent year over year, with the company blaming the impact of hurricanes.

Shaw was visibly in pain and didn't get up immediately. It will be worth watching how the Indian line-up would face Austraila's pacing attack. As of now, they will play a home Test series against top-ranked India starting on December 6.

India were also privately annoyed at the lack of firepower named in the CA XI but could have no complaints after giving up a 186-run lead.

Even still, India were unable to snare the final wicket of the innings as tail-enders Luke Robins (38 not out) and Jackson Coleman (36) made good on D'Arcy's Short promise the Australians would not declare and do everything they could to grind India into the ground.

Government Seeks Quick Ruling on Transgender Troops Case
Supreme Court on Friday to review lower court rulings blocking a policy barring certain transgender people from military service. The administration has since limited the policy to transgender individuals with a history of gender dysphoria.

Clarke joined a chorus of former players who have criticised the new ethos propagated in the wake of March's ball-tampering scandal, saying Australia's chances of success would be compromised if their aggressive streak was tempered.
