Default The Ashes

well they start tomorrow, any guesses as to where they'll end up?

I'm going for a tight series with Aussies winning by a test even though it kills me to say it.

Hope I'm wrong.

the worst thing that could have happened to us did, Bangladesh beat the Aussies in that famous one dayer, since then they've just got stronger and stronger, a strong case of national pride.

yep, even Gillespie performed in the last one-dayer. Our best hope is friction in the camp from Warne shagging other players wives and girlfriends

or the openers putting bat to ball and stop relying on the middle order

hey, did you see the final of the 20/20?

I caught the highlights and it was a draw, so they had a penalty style shoot out where the bowlers each took it in turn to bowl at the unguarded wicket.

I think it was Surrey against I don't know.

Anyway Surrey won and the bloke that knocked the wickets over for the win pulled his top off and ran round the ground swinging it in the air, his team mates in pursuit.

very bizarre and just not cricket

The Aussies have been spouting their usual crap in the papers over here, they're going to win 5-0 we're scared of them.

I think it'll be close, if I was having bet it would have to go on them.

But let me tell you England aren't amused by their comments and maybe just maybe they'll inspire them to something special.

Very bizare indeed.
It was against Warwickshire (my team) unfortunately, and was only the quarter final, so god knows what he'll do if it did happened in the final.

As for the ashes, this team is the best we've had since the mid 80's, a good blend of steady batsmen and exciting big hitters mixed with a good attack of pace bowling from Hoggard and Harmisson.
We still lack a good spinner, with Giles being ok, but nothing special.
Theres more emphasis on saving runs in the field, and we've even learnt how to sledge!
So all in all, I expect a close series, and really can't see anything less than the Aussies retaining the ashes, but only after drawing the series 2-2.

Will.

The series is not over till its' won. So I am against the opinions spelt out here. I think England will pull it off.
