I know about home advantage and all that, but see the Aussies as favourites.
They have the 2 *****, I mean cheats returning and their bowling attack is quality.
Just hope Roy can adjust to test cricket quickly because whoever plays, the top 3 bats look weak, especially if Stark, carries on his WC form. I can see us being 2 or 3 early wickets down a lot - Root should really bat No 3.
In saying that, it s/b a close series and so the odds on a drawn series, look attractive !!
But believe it or not, I don't think an Ashes series, has finished level since 1972

No, the odds are largely unaffected by the WC. Of course, the odds are partly based on the value of bets placed to date as well as the objective chance of winning. The odds of England winning the football World Cup are always artificially short because of the blind loyalty we have for our team.

I don't think the Australian batting line-up is that solid either. They're also struggling for a red-ball opener. Warner & Smith haven't played Test match cricket for a while although there's no denying their class.

I agree there is value in Aus at 7/4 but the series is being played in England with the Duke ball. Injuries will be crucial - if Anderson misses 2 or more Tests, we may struggle.

I suspect the draw is so long because it's a 5 (i.e. an odd number) game series & there are so few Test match draws these days - rain provides the best chance of one.

Last 9 series, only once has the away side won. Whether being over earlier this time makes a difference, who knows.

I was having a conversation with Razor, I'm actually quietly confident!

Following Sunday's high, a get together at Burton

A proper competitive fixture against the Irish, who will be champing at the bit..

I used to criticise the stuffed shirts brigade of old, but with the whole country in the crest of a wave, we're ticking over nicely..

I'm fully aware that if it all comes crashing down then it's all my fault

What's more important to your average engerland cricket fan; the world cup or the ashes?

Genuine question.

Generally the Ashes I would say. But getting the monkey off the back of never having won the World Cup I can understand why it was a bit of a priority.

Neither, compared to beating Ireland in the next fixture

Hopefully the Irish team will also give England some tips on professional grade Potato Rolling as well

Fine question SC.

Ashes just......but something incredibly special about the WC.

Traditionalist v modernist. As a traditionalist, I love test matches and would say the Ashes.

As per the recent comments of Ashley Giles, there is no reason why we cannot prioritise both forms.

The 'pig carrying' dig was the funniest line from that other post, dear Timbo.

I assume that the Irish team will aim for Morgan's head when he's in bat, or is it not like that?

I have to say the way Cricket is going the World Cup is going to become the biggest thing in Cricket.

They really need to create a formula where test cricket can become a meaningful competition because outside of the Ashes there is limited interest and the longer game is finding it hard to compete with the sheer excitement and drama of the shorter formats.

Money talks and the viewing public want to watch one day cricket, England winning the world cup hasn't helped either as its fuelled interest in the shorter format. At county level Surrey sell out the Oval for a T20 and its empty for a 4 day game.

I see more and more players only wanting the play the short game and certain countries virtually giving up on the longer game. Test matches in empty stadiums are doing nothing for anyone for example in the Carribbean when the short game has produced so much quality cricket.

Of course the Ashes is the Ashes and that rivalry will continue forever probably as a unique contest but its significance too will be under pressure.

The question is, is the longer game worth saving? Perhaps it'd be better to let it wain and let the shorter game be the future?
