    Well with a new forum and a historic Test series win over South Africa, in their own back yard, i thought we need a new thread ;)

    Not a totally convincing series win, but the boys did the job, and lets hope we can finally give the Aussies a run for their money in the summer and try and claim back the ashes.

    Special mention to Andrew Strauss who picked up the MVP series player award, with some very fine innings.

    Bring on the Aussies !!!

    Congrats to England for winning, not the biggest fan of Cricket as a spectator sport, playing it is a good laugh though.

    England were superb! With Australia we are probably the best Test side in the world. The Ashes are a tough one to call so i think they'll end up 1-1 or 2-2.

    I think the Ashes will be won 3-2. Hopefully by England. I really do hope we can get a result against the Aussies. It would be great for English cricket.

    I think if Harmison, Vaughan and Trescothick can get back to top form and the others stay at the level they're currently performing at, we can give them a real run for their money, although its all ifs and buts at the moment. Still, at least it should make for a more intruiging contest than previous ashes series.

    Would love to see England win in the summer. Still think that the Aussies have the edge on us though. Going to be fun finding out though.

    The Aussies definetly have the edge over the Poms, but this should be a great series. England lack a world class spin bowler, while Australia has arguably the best leg spinner ever in Shane Warne.

    Australia will win it 2-1, two matches will be abandoned due to the English summer rain.

    I agree we dont have a world class spinner, but they are rarely used on our pitches anyway. As long as Hoggard, Freddy and Harmison hit top form, we'll get wickets.

    South Africa are now 2-1 up in the seven match series, should be interesting to see if England can fight back and win the series.

    Preface: I know very little about Cricket...however...

    GO BERMUDA!!! Semi-finals of the ICC on our way in 2007 to the World Cup...not bad for a country whose population could fit into Old Traffod. We lost to Scotland today, but play Canada tomorrow for 3rd place, now if only I could be excited enough to actually watch the damn sport...

    Aussies won the toss and chose to bat.

    They're 3 down already for only 66 runs and it's not even noon on the first day yet. Who is this bunch of old has-beens?

    [edit]
    sorry, make that 66-4....

    are you Bangladesh in disguise???

    87-5 get in there lads. I bet every Aussie in England is trying to hide at the moment.

    If we can get Gilchrist early I think they'll struggle to get 150.

    A good first morning dictated by English adrenalin and (dare I say it?) Aussie nerves. Long way to go yet though...

    England 155 all out....not a bad recovery from 21-5. Pieterson's making a good first impression at Test level. Shame the top order guys were playing silly buggers again.

    Aussies only 35 ahead...game on again.
