HOW time flies. The is on, so it must be sum­mer. Join Nine’s from 10.30am this morn­ing ( check lo­cal guides) for day three of the first Test against Sri Lanka, live from the Gabba in Bris­bane. The Aus­tralian team is cap­tained again by Ricky Ponting; Brett Lee leads the pace at­tack, with Stu­art Clark and Mitchell John­son. All eyes will be on Sri Lankan mas­ter spin­ner Mut­tiah Mu­ralitha­ran, whose wicket count is ap­proach­ing that of Shane Warne. In fact, in cel­e­bra­tion of 25 years of Test cricket ri­valry, the two teams will be com­pet­ing for the Warne- Mu­rali Tro­phy, which hon­ours the two spin­bowl­ing leg­ends. If beats cricket at your house, Seven has live cov­er­age of the Emi­rates Stakes Day, the last day of the 2007 Melbourne Cup Car­ni­val, live from 11am ( check lo­cal guides). Tra­di­tion­ally this is a fam­ily day on which young­sters are wel­come to come and find out about horse rac­ing and take part in var­i­ous events. To­mor­row it’s back to the Gabba for day four of the cricket from 10.30am, fol­lowed in the lunch break at 1pm by Nine’s hosted, as al­ways, by Si­mon O’Don­nell. Then it’s back to the pitch at 1.30pm. Re­cal­ci­trants who fancy in­stead should turn to Fox Sports 1 at 1pm for Sun­der­land v New­cas­tle in the English Pre­mier League.
