The Ashes - 2015

Australia vs England.

Red ball, played over 5 days for 5 Test matches.

Pride and honour for their respective Countries at stake.

Australia holds the Ashes after a 5 - 0 whitewash in 2014/15.

Will the results be the same or has England found what it will take to compete?

Is England good enough to claim back what they feel is rightfully theirs?

Or will Australia retain the little Urn with another 5 Nil performance?

Seems to me the England dressing room is in a bit of disarray, isn't it? Accusations of cliques and such?

You're behind the times a little Sid. England seem to have got their act together to some degree and put the KP-stuff behind them.

Australia are playing in a warm-up match just up the road from me. They're looking pretty good, albeit against a County-side.

Not certain we think it's "rightfully" ours.

I don't think the England bowling attack is strong enough right now and we lack experience.

That was a pretty good warm up for the Aussies.

Most batsmen getting some good time in the middle and the bowlers working hard at the crease. Hopefully they can build on that performance and keep improving throughout the tour.
