Given the paywall of the Murdoch press, where one can't access any  free articles, the best places for Aussie cricket that I've found are:

*Cricinfo

* SMH and The Age

* Fox Sports



Because we are playing England we have some English media outlets.

* The English Guardian

* The Telegraph - does it have a paywall?

* Observer/Independent

The Times must have a paywall - it belongs to Murdoch. 



Cricinfo is the best cricket site.

Which others are good?

Cricibfo is always there for us, indeed

Before I forget, what do you fellas think of these podcasts I’ve recently subscribed to in order to get an aussie angle(and have been pleasantly surprised in the main so far)?

The Grade Cricketer
The Final Word
The Unplayable podcast
Caught Behind

As for UK cricket podcasts I like The Spin (flaws an all), Switch Hit ESPN, Tuffers & Vaughan (auntie beeb) Following On (talkSPORT), The Analyst (Simon Hughes, brilliant), Urnbelievable (quirly co UK-Aus production), Sky Sports Cricket podcast (good value despite Rob Key), but the one you deffo  should seek out is the Wisden Cricket Podcast..

So at least I’m covered for podcasts during these Ashes!

Surely Roar is not hated in the Cricket section?

Reading the football section in the FTBL site these days, there is quite a degree of immaturity  in it, compared to the discussion on here.

Some posters on FTBL forum are cynical about anything.

I'll check Roar out again.

Thanks for the recommendation, Grazor.

Print? The Guardian/Observer sport sections are regularly (well not that regularly perhaps for us lot), the Torygraph articles are only paywalled when they are ‘premium’

Wisden has some good archive(y) stuff etc

https://www.wisden.com/

I see the Roar’s podcast is not exclusively cricket but I’ll give it a go, I do lots of bullet train commutes into Tokyo so need my fix.

Twitter often provides links to good updated articles from unexpected sources, innit?
