    It's between 4th and 5th place? Really. If only one of the Indian contingent had already pointed that out

    What are these "rankings" of which you speak? I was pretty sure teams were ranked on how they perform when it matters i.e. during the Ashes. England have won as many Ashes series as almost any other side.

    Will support Oz. Mainly because of Bollinger's presence. Will also support England when Swann bowls.

    Meh, it's the start of England's glorious march to number 1 in the rankings, to be claimed once India are defeated next summer.

    As an indian supporter, you'd have a long history of being interested in test series involving poorly ranked teams. Come on, you should follow it - give those of us less experienced at it a heads up on appropriate fan reactions when your team isn't that great.

    I'm amazed you missed the opportunity to bait the English with that point. Sort it out.

    Cricket did not exist before 2010 tbh.

    The Ashes are just like the India-Pakistan games : form, experience and all that yadda do not matter one little bit. Australia are near invincible at home and will start favourites. It would be foolish to write England off, though, as this is clearly the best English side in a long time; yes, even better than the Ashes 2005 side.

    As for who I would be rooting for; well, I really do not know; there are players I like on either side. I am just keeping my fingers crossed for a close contest either way.

    I would agree. And I also don't want Aussies to become uncompetitive like the Windies. So I would vouch for them this time around.
