After two and a half years of waiting, another Ashes series is upon us. They will come thick and fast from here onwards but for now all eyes are on England (and Wales).

It’s a good job the first two tests are back-to-back as cricket message boards across the web were chocker full of over-analysis in the aftermath of Monday’s drawn test. Most of the discussion, in particular in Cricket Web’s Ashes Forum, centred around wondering which side had the momentum following the game.
