Shaun Marsh admits he is on his last chance in Test cricket but says he will approach the Ashes in a "nice and relaxed" manner. Marsh has enjoyed his eighth Test recall ahead of Thursday's series opener in Brisbane in a career hampered by injury and poor form. Selected to fill the troublesome No.6 spot, he understands that, at 34, this is likely to be his final attempt at a sustained period in a side hoping to regain cricket's most famous prize. "I am probably aware of that. It's not bothering me.
Australia's state cricketers will have to defy the trend of the past decade if they are to deliver what national selection chairman Trevor Hohns really wants. Hohns made it clear while unveiling the Test squad for this week's Ashes opener that the selectors were tired of inconsistent and underperforming batsmen in the Sheffield Shield.
The man who helped engineer the whitewash of England four years ago has warned the tourists Australia's current attack will boast even more aggression than its predecessor which hunted "like hyenas round a dying zebra". Former Australian spearhead Craig McDermott, who was bowling coach during the 5-0 win in 2013-14, said an attack of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins will have the high-level pace to consistently trouble an uncertain England line-up.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
