    This summer's Ashes series has been full of batting collapses, but nothing quite like the one suffered by United Arab Emirates Under-19s against Nepal.
    Chasing 200 in a 50-over game, the UAE had made a good start in reaching 44-1. Ten overs later, they were all out for 50 having lost nine wickets for six runs.
    No batsman from number three down made a score of more than one and the final four wickets fell for no runs.
    Of the 50 that were mustered, 32 were made by opening batsman Waruna Perera.

    Future Ashes Test matches in Perth are to be moved away from the iconic WACA ground to a new stadium in the city.
    Plans have been unveiled which include moving all Australia's Test matches against England, South Africa and India to the new 60,000-seater Perth Stadium.
    The Waca will be renovated and maintained as a "boutique stadium".
    Former Australia fast bowler Dennis Lillee has resigned as Western Australian Cricket Association president over the move

    Shane Watson has announced his retirement from Test cricket
    He had played 59 Tests beginning in 2005, scoring 3731 runs at 35.19 and taking 75 wickets at 33.68. Injury issues afflicted Watson for much of his time around the side, and he never reached the heights that many, including himself, had expected of him in Tests.

    Australia's departure for their tour of Bangladesh has been delayed because of "safety and security" concerns.
    Australian government sources identified a "potential security risk to Australian interests" in Bangladesh, according to Cricket Australia.
    The squad, scheduled to leave on 28 September, will await further advice, while Cricket Australia is working on a "revised security plan".
    The two-Test series is set to begin in Chittagong on 9 October.

    West Indies have suspended head coach Phil Simmons after his criticism of the selections for the tour of Sri Lanka.
    The 52-year-old, who only took charge in March, questioned the omissions of all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard from the one-day squad.

    Sri Lanka offspinner Tharindu Kaushal has been banned from bowling the doosra in international cricket due to an illegal action. However his stock delivery, the offbreak, has been found to be legal in tests conducted by the ICC on his bowling action at the Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai.
