    My excuse for the last T20 WC was that I was in Poland and Slovakia at the time. Asking the locals about cricket would get a look like I was asking for a striptease (although if it was a females then... ).

    I had no idea that the T20WC was on next year, and yet I don't exactly hate the format.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Moreover, it's just tremendous to see the return of the protracted Ashes tour. Sadly, it's not as long as the tours in the late 80's and early 90's, when the chaps used to arrive pre-Anzac day and wing home in late August. I have to say, as a boy, it was one of my fantasies to get on that big Ashes tour bus and just passenger my way around England playing cricket. The Ashes tour bus is so kitted out. It has everything. In fact, they used to borrow the Man U bus for the early part of the tour (as it coincided with the EPL off-season).

    They can fit 16,000 into it, apparently. About the same as Trent Bridge, but less than Riverside, Old Trafford or the Rose Bowl.
