    Yeah, not disputing that and have argued that myself - but he's a lower-tier threat for mine.

    England still favorites for the next Ashes, despite the recent changes, but the margin of difference between the sides is definitely starting to close in. Can only be a good thing for the game though, especially seeing as though the series' are back to back.

    Nah, I was pretty happy with how things panned out last time around.

    But yes, 2013's looking too close to call right now. Especially when you factor in the decline in Cook, Bell & Trott's form since the last Ashes.

    Everyone goes through ups and downs its not like the Aussies batting line-up is likely to be much cp aside from Clarke over here.

    I hope its a really close series, and can sense it being so. I mean the closeness of the last Ashes was masked by those last two games; before that it was incredibly close. Can you imagine if that had been a 3 Test series? Crikey. But the teams are probably more evenly matched now. Cook, Trott and Bell were pretty much at their peaks, Clarke and Ponting pretty much at all time lows. More pronounced is the bowling. I'm not sure Australia's could have been any worse last time out, so I expect a big improvement there, and I'm not sure ours could have been much better. Once again it just looks very evenly matched. Can't wait.
