Sydney council cancels Australia Day fireworks 'out of respect' for bushfire victims. Blacktown Council in Sydney's west has become the latest council to cancel its Australia Day fireworks display as fires continue to burn across New South Wales and Victoria.
Blacktown Mayor Tony Bleasdale said the decision was taken in response to the bushfires which have killed at least 28 people and destroyed more than 3,000 properties. “Out of respect to those who lost lives and property, and with the ever-present danger from fires in our own area, the council has decided to put this year’s fireworks on hold,” Cr Bleasdale said. Blacktown joins a growing list of councils that have decided not to go ahead with firework displays on 26 January, including Geelong and Canberra. It follows muted New Year's Eve and Lunar New Year celebrations when the bushfire crisis prompted many regional cities and event organisers to go without fireworks. Cr Bleasdale assured western suburbs residents there would still be "plenty of fun and excitement" for families on the day. Australia vs India ODI 2020: Battles to decide One Day cricket series, analysis, fixtures, video, Virat Kohli.
It was 10 months ago that Australia pulled off the unthinkable, coming from 2-0 down to beat India on their home soil 3-2.
Making the comeback all the remarkable was heading into the five-match one day series last March, Australia had lost 18 of their previous 24 games, with two no results. But two centuries and a 91 from Usman Khawaja in the final three one-dayers saw Australia leave Indian shores with a staggering series win. Ten months later and Australia has returned to India. It’s a vastly different squad from the one that toured last year, with Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Shaun Marsh and Nathan Lyon among those who have since been axed, while Jhye Richardson continues to work his way back into the squad after injury cruelled his 2019.
In their place have come Steve Smith and David Warner, while Marnus Labuschagne’s stunning six months of Test cricket sees him in line to make his ODI debut. Here are three battles that will shape the three-match series. Australia fires: NASA claims bushfire smoke will do full lap of the earth. "The smoke is expected to make at least one full circuit around the globe, returning once again to the skies over Australia," NASA said.

" Bushfires have already burnt more than 5.2 million hectares in NSW and 1.3 million hectares in Victoria this fire season.
The smoke is having a dramatic impact on nearby New Zealand, which has experienced severe air quality issues and a darkening of the colour of the snow on the mountains. NASA satellites show smoke has travelled more than 6500 kilometres away from Australia, with some of it reaching Chile, where hazy skies and colourful sunsets have been reported.
