The Ashes starts in 30 minutes! (biggest cricket tournament for both England & Australia)

5 test matches. ends in Mid Sept.

Very hard one to call this time, could be very close. Both teams stronger with the ball than with the bat.

I am buzzing for this!

I am enjoying this as much as I can while we have the ball, because once we don't it could be a different story

fair play to Smith, that was one hell of an innings for him, he was under serious pressure and delivered.

I guess we will really see how good England's innings was yesterday from 11:00am this morning (eek!)
