Iíve made a bet with an Aussie mate that in the potential 10 innings in this series, England will score 200+ on no more than 4 occasions.

Scarily plausible. If Root has a bad tour, it could be a massacre.

BT Sport have been showing highlights of the 2010 Ashes. Today I watched 2 hours of unadulterated pleasure - the 4th Test.

83,000 at the MCG Boxing Day
An amazing top order (England): Cook, Strauss, Trott, Pieterson, Bell
Tim Tremlett: forgotten about him. Heís enormous too
Aussies get pulverised

I think that's a winner

Chris Tremlett - the Tim was Bresnan. But you're absolutely right, he was a beast and that was a great side. Arguably a better Aussie side than we've faced since, as well.

I have the boxset of that series. Absolutely loved it. I was at university at the time, and I don't think I attended a single lecture or seminar for the duration. I was essentially nocturnal.

I would think Melbourne and Sydney might scupper you there.

Is anybody watching the IPL final? Chennai just took a wicket, but the decision was reversed because the ball hit the spider cam cable before it was caught. Dead ball. Incredible.

Morgan did very well to get KKR into the final, but his batting disintegrated, along with Dinesh Karthik. Good to see Mo winning though.

Hoping that Morgan follows through with the suggestion that he might drop himself.

He's batting has fallen apart to the extent that he's not worth a place in the team

Blimey. Sri Lanka have two bowlers hurling it down at 91 mph,against Ireland.

There are a couple of negatives for England from what I saw today but the big positive is that Buttler is seeing it like a beachball, if he carries that form into the 'real' games then we stand a very good chance. The bowling attack and fielding look fantastic as well. If Malan and Morgan had any form I'd think we were favourites but without them I think we might be a little light on runs if Buttler and Roy don't deliver every game.

The cricket team of the Dutch people from Holland in The Netherlands has gone a bit rubbish lately
