I cannot wait for the Ashes. That’s not to do a disservice to Sri Lanka or Pakistan in the summer and, on the basis of England’s performance at Lord’s, they really need a rocket up their derrieres. But after last summer’s extraordinary happenings, the next Ashes is going to be massive.
And there’s a distinct possibility the MCG could host 100,000 people in the Boxing Day Test! 100,000 – can you imagine? English grounds hold about 30,000 (I think) – 100,000 is taking the mick.
