Ashes.

  1. Like Christmas, it comes earlier and earlier thanks to the BCCI, sorry ICC.
    Obviously strong home advantage, but I reckon it's England's to lose. Australia's pace attack bowl a fuller length than in the antipodes and we are up the creek without the proverbial.
    Game on.

  3. Pundits are suggesting that both teams have terrible batting line ups and good bowling line ups... could be evenly matched!

    Once the heatwave is done (it’s been a week, that’s enough summer) we’ll end up with more typical overcast, moist weather that’ll affect proceedings.

  7. Losing your main strike bowler on the 1st day doesn't help but luckily its not finished yet :)

    My lads are off to Edgbaston tomorrow. Will has just tried his clothes on for it. Watch out for him and a very embarrassed older brother on the tele tomorrow

  15. I have an Aussie lass behind me in the office.

    Luckily she detests all forms of sport!!

    The rest of the girls in the office then asked me to explain cricket....

  16. Not a great display all round. Still, only half a bowling attack, and we lost the first match in 2005, that turned out alright
