    Pretty chuffed at my results in the first match. Had to give the poms a sniff of victory before I really let them have it.

    The poms just love leg spinners don't they?

    Right then fellas, the main event is nearly with us. Tomorrow I'll post up a preview with teams for the first Test.

    Two points:

    1. From now on I'll be using interest as first criterion for selection so if you think you're not playing enough, asking will probably be enough to get you into the side.

    2. I'll be in Exeter most of this week and can't seem to post images properly off my phone. So either you'll go without the scorecards or someone can volunteer to put up the results of each day and keep schtum in between.

    Given I'm ineligible for either side, I could post the scores?.

    The lower order runs are useful and all, but I could do with some more wickets. Doesn't help that I've been underbowled throughout

    Really don't want to have to pester people for lineups, which would be inevitable.

    Trent Bridge hosts opening showdown

    1st test - England vs Australia

    Trent Bridge, Nottingham
    10th-14th July


    Get the beers in, set the sky box to record and put that trumpet away, the Ashes are nearly upon us.

    England go into the match with some batting concerns, with no centurions among the top six. Wood's 90 has been the only one to come close, and as one of only two specialist batsme in the side, more will be expected from KP Moody than his current summer of 73 runs from 4 innings. They will, however, take heart in the performance of their opening bowlers Myheart and Force, and the pace attack will have some reassuring depth with Deen performing ably as backup. The allrounder has also produced their only century so far.

    Australia will no doubt enjoy the batting advantage, though it has come from unexpected sources. Their middle order hasn't quite fired, with Monk and Spark only managing a high score of 49 between them, but instead keeper-batsman Haddin has been dominant with two big tons, and has had fine support from Bobby Loblaw and Dan Wayne to form a potent lower order. While Australia's seamers have been inconsistent, their spinners Lewis and Stephen produced two of the finest hauls of the summer at Taunton.

    Expected teams:

    England: Fertang, Pickup, Moody, Robertson, Wood, Ardley, Deen, Tesnan, Myheart, Furball, Force
    Australia: Burridge, Lewis, Super, Monk, Spark, Loblaw, Haddin, Wayne, Suifdadny, Player, Stephen
