Australia celebrates National Tree Day on July 28. The cricket team is in support of this initiative which is partnered by Cricket Australia.

Planet Ark and Toyota are calling on all Australians to Get Outside and Grow and help make nature a part of our everyday lives where we live, learn, work and play. This year there are more ways to branch out and help. Not only can one organise or attend a planting or activity at a park, beach, school or nature reserve. New this year, one will be able to organise a personal activity at home with your family and friends in your backyard, on your balcony, or even along your nature strip or street

Australia is currently trailing by 2-0 in the five match Ashes series. They lost the first Test match by 14 runs and the second Test at Lord's by 347 runs. They will play the third Test at Old Trafford starting August 1, 2013.
