    I remember feeling like a zombie at work for most of that series... But I couldn't have cared less. Perma-smile on my face.

    I think I'm right in saying Cook score more runs last time out in Oz than he has in his other 3 Ashes series combined?

    Yeah 766 out of 1507

    So if he bats to a start in the second dig then it won't be the case

    He won't get a bat because we'll win by an innings.

    England now 13 Tests unbeaten, which equals the unbeaten run in 2004-05. Best before that was a 27-Test run in 1968-71.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    What are our fixtures after the Ashes? Do we go to the windies or have I just pulled that out of my arse?
