ICC Super Series Test 2005
Super test day 4: Australia thrash World XI
October 17, 2005Australia's spinners ripped through the World XI to record a convincing 210-run victory on day four of the Super Series Test in Sydney. Stuart MacGill took four wickets on Monday and Shane Warne three as the World XI were all out for 144.
Resuming on 25-2, the World XI lost Rahul Dravid (23), Brian Lara (36) and Inzamam-ul-Haq (0) before lunch. And with the exception of Jacques Kallis, who was unbeaten on 39, the rest of the batsmen surrendered meekly. MacGill ended with figures of 5-43 off 15 overs and Warne took 3-48 off 19.
Man-of-the-match: Matthew Hayden
Super test day 3: Test set for exciting end
October 16, 2005The World XI bowlers hit back on day three of the six-day Super Test, dismissing Australia for 199 in Sydney. But set an imposing 355 to win, the World XI made a shaky start in their second innings, slumping to 25-2 when bad light stopped play early.
Australia lost their last nine wickets for just 47 runs, their worst batting collapse on home soil for 117 years, Matthew Hayden top-scoring with 77.
Super test day 2: Australia on top against World XI
October 15, 2005Australia have a commanding lead in the six-day Super Test after bowling out the World XI for 190 in Sydney. Leg-spinners Stuart MacGill and Shane Warne did the damage for the home side, claiming seven wickets between them. By the close of play on day two, Australia had advanced to 66-1, a lead of 221 runs, with Jacques Kallis dismissing Justin Langer for 22.
Lee had World skipper Graeme Smith caught behind for 12, while McGrath removed Rahul Dravid and Brian Lara. Dravid was caught by wicket-keeper Gilchrist for a duck while Lara was lbw for five. India's Virender Sehwag and South African Kallis steadied the World XI ship after lunch until Sehwag holed out to Simon Katich off Warne after making 76. Inzamam-ul-Haq was out for one in the following over, stumped by Gilchrist off MacGill.
Super test day 1: Gilchrist aims for Super century
October 14, 2005Australia were 331-6 when bad light ended play on day one, with Gilchrist 94 not out and Shane Warne on one. Vice-captain Gilchrist hit four sixes and eight fours in his 109-ball innings after opener Matthew Hayden made 111.
World skipper Graeme Smith hopes they can restrict Australia to under 400 and then establish a first innings lead. "If we can defend 400 and hopefully bat well, then that's a good position in the game and we can really attack in the second innings.
ICC Super Series ODIs 2005
ODI 3: World XI collapse to third defeat
October 7, 2005The ICC World XI crashed to another defeat at Melbourne's Telstra Dome as Australia cruised to a 3-0 win in the World Series one-day tournament. With just the Test match in Sydney to come, Australia look to be back in form after their Ashes disappointment.
Brett Lee had a tremendous evening, taking 4-30, after Michael Hussey and Shane Watson had taken the Aussies to another formidable score, 293-5. The World XI were bowled out for 137, Virender Sehwag making 37.
ODI 2: Gilchrist blitz seals series
October 7, 2005Adam Gilchrist hit the fastest ever century by an Australian to help the home side beat the World XI by 55 runs and win the one-day Super Series. Gilchrist made his ton from just 73 balls as Australia set the opposition a target of 329 after making 328-4. The batsman-keeper got good support from captain Ricky Ponting (66), Damien Martyn (54) and Simon Katich (47).
Chris Gayle and Kumar Sangakkara made half-centuries and Andrew Flintoff made 42 in reply but it proved not enough.
ODI 1: Australia outplay World all-stars
October 5, 2005Australia exploded the myth of their decline as cricket's super power with a convincing 93-run victory over a star-studded World XI in the opening One-Day International of the ICC Johnnie Walker Super Series in Melbourne.
The three-time World Champions produced a solid batting display to put up a challenging 255 for eight, and then followed it up with an immaculate bowling performance to dismiss the World XI for 163 with more than eight overs to spare. The World XI were reduced to smithereens by the blistering force of the Aussies as only two of the specialists in the star-studded line up managed to reach double figures. India's swashbuckling opener Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid found themselves undone by the searing pace and steep bounce of the track at the roofed Telstra Dome stadium. Only Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara (64) and England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff (38) managed to emerge unscathed.
Super Series warm-up match
October 2, 2005The World XI warmed up for the Super Series against Australia by squeaking home with a 12-run win over Victoria. India's Rahul Dravid top-scored with 66 as the World XI scored 281-8 at the Junction Oval in St Kilda.

Steve Waugh signed off in style with an innings that portrayed his character impeccably as Australia forced a draw to finish the series 1-1 against a determined India at the SCG. The standing ovation that Waugh earned will reverberate for some time to come as the audience rose to pay tribute to a highly distinguished modern cricketer who brought glory to the game with his dedication and a vision to create a great combination. In the closing stages, with the crowd chanting "Steve Waugh, Steve Waugh", it was a fight between the Australia skipper and the bowlers wanting to deny him his 33rd century in 168 Tests. The Indians denied him that honour but not the respect as they all converged on the man to pat him and shake his hands. Waugh deserved the emotional farewell.
