The sphinxes are back, and they’re bigger and better than ever before.
The Australian Grand Prix has been one of the greatest sporting events in Australia, and now, a new one will take place at the MCG.
There’s more than just the sphinxs here: this is the world’s largest and most technologically advanced sporting event, with the largest crowd ever seen.
Here’s everything you need to know.
What is the Spinax?
The Spinacis are a family of sphinuses that live in Australia’s Gold Coast.
The Spins are among the biggest in the world, weighing more than 250 tonnes.
They were brought to Australia in the 1940s by a French ship to protect the coast from the effects of the Black Death.
In 2016, the spinner team, along with the Australian National University, won a grand prize at the Spinning World Championships.
The organisers hope to bring back the spinax in 2020.
The race will be held at the Adelaide Oval, with a live stream on BBC Sport and the ABC.
Who is in the running?
The Australian team includes six of the world’ best spinner spinners, including David Warner, Brendon McCullum, Joe Root, Nathan Lyon and Joe Burns.
The field includes six Australian men’s team members as well as a handful of international stars, including Yuvraj Singh and Peter Siddle.
The six Australian spinners are the highest-scoring pair in Australian cricket history, with five centuries each.
The four-time winner of the Ashes, Shaun Marsh, will also be back in action.
The Australians have also brought in a number of new players for the race, including two who have played in the Ashes: Dale Steyn and Brad Haddin.
The men’s teams are comprised of Brendon Guptill, Peter Sudders, Alex Gomes and Mitchell Marsh.
The women’s teams have seven Australian women, and two South African players.
The field is set to include a total of six teams.
Three teams will compete for a spot in the final four, and three more will compete in the semi-finals and the final.
The first two teams to qualify will also qualify for the Grand Slam.
The final two teams will meet for the trophy.
Australia will face India in the opening match, followed by South Africa, England and West Indies.
The winner of that match will face England in the first-round tie-breaker, while the winner of a tie-break game will meet India for the final spot in a knockout tournament.
The two winners of the tie-breaks will advance to the second round.
Who will win?
The winner will face either India or England, the latter with the right to face the winner from the first match.
India have won every World Cup match between them and Australia in all competitions, including the two series against England in 2017.
Australia are unbeaten in their two meetings with India, and have not lost since December 2014.
The Indian men’s squad are the biggest squad of any team to win a World Cup.
They are led by Australia’s new captain, Trent Boult, who won the Ashes in 2017 after leading Australia to victory in the 2016 tournament.
Boult has been on an incredible rise since taking over the captaincy of the team, scoring 27 and 11 centuries respectively in the three series he captained them in.
The Australia team, meanwhile, are led and supported by skipper Adam Voges, who has been Australia’s all-time leading run-scorer.
Voges has played the last six Tests, scoring 5, 7 and 7 for Australia in their three series against India.
What will happen at the start of the race?
The start of a race is crucial, with one race not enough to decide the winners.
In the Australian Grand Cup, the final five teams will be determined by a three-day series of qualifying, the first of which is scheduled for Sunday (Australian time).
Teams will have to qualify for three days at the venue, where they’ll be matched against a second-tier opposition team in the race.
Then, teams will face each other for the next three days to determine who will go on to the next round.
The teams will then travel to Adelaide to play two games, with each game a best-of-three series.
The second round is then played, with two more games played over the following two days.
In Australia, the teams will play each other three times in the next four days.
Australia and India will face off for the title in Adelaide on July 15.
The tie-breakers will be decided in a second round of qualifiers, which will also determine who the winner will be.
In Adelaide, Australia will have the first leg of the series, followed on July 17 by India.
