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.
