In some breaking news out of the city of Brisbane, the summer of cricket has officially begun.

The symbolic first ball at the Gabba has just been sent down by Mitchell Starc to mark a significant date on the official Silly Season calendar.

With the Melbourne Cup and the social media skirmishes that come with it in the rear-view and the year tailing off nicely, the beginning of the Test Summer has arrived to assure the nation that we are almost through another spin around the sun.

The iconic first test at the Gabba host the Pakistani cricket team, before another test down south and a few against the boys from across the dutch in what bodes as a somewhat lacklustre billing following the incredible Ashes series.

“Fuck, how good,” explained one local man streaming the first session on his phone.

“That’s a wrap for the year for me.”

More to come.
