I am. :) I'm a definite neutral though, not backing anyone. So far it's been good cricket, especially by the aussies. There's a kangaroo in your avvie so I guess you're an aussie supporter.

Yeah i've been following it quite closely :(

We really need to make some changes if we want to have any chance of not getting battered in the rest of the series

mm Australia is too good and it makes for boring cricket. I think a lot of cricket is 'fixed' anyway. Ricky Ponting was quite masterful, I haven't really watched cricket for some years due to the whole match fixing/no competition thing, so I hadn't seen him play before.

Yes i have been following it and well done to England for getting a draw as at one stage they looked down and out but looking forward to the 2nd test at lords.

i am amazed that people would compete so hard to win a cup full of ash.

i would not accept a cup full of ash if it was offered to me for free.

He's a great cricket player, but he's a very poor captain.

i've been watching the ashes, just as i do everytime it's on, i like watching cricket. I don't think anyone should be neutral in this, everyone should want england to win :) the sledging by the aussies is disgusting.

I'm afraid I can't be anything but neutral. I'm a Proteas fan after all.

Best way to beat sledging, is to win the game.
