Welcome to the first installment of Ashes HQ, a blog to capture the highs, lows, events and non-events which comprise an Ashes series. The series of 2005 was a fillip for Test cricket and the 2009 summer in England has fans and punters alike lining up for more of the same.
The blog is a collaborative, multi-national effort composed of esteemed members of the Cricket Web family; Zac Gelman and Cameron Burge (Australia), Martyn Corrin and Richard Dickinson (England), Will Quinn (Ireland) and yours truly, Corey Taylor also from Australia.
Over the course of the summer, you'll be seeing the series through the eyes of the above contributors and we'll be doing our best to provide balanced commentary but also some of the more off-the-wall happenings which occur in an Ashes summer. Whatever happens, hopefully
cricket is the winner.
