Default The Ashes

Not sure how many cricket fans there are on these boards, but I know there are a few from Australia, NZ, SA and plenty from England.

This looks to be an intriguing series (or two series..es?) I think England have been rather overrated, and Botham's prediction of a 10-0 whitewash look fanciful to me. Australia clearly have a lot of upcoming talent, and it will be interesting to see what this new bowling attack is all about.

No great surprise to see Captain Cook out already: his form looks a touch patchy to me, and he will have to find his touch in order to avoid being eclipsed by 22-year old Joe Root, opening the batting with him.
