    We do, but it's just limited overs games. Next Tests are Sri Lanka over here in May.

    Test wise, we've got 2 at home to Sri Lanka, 5 at home to India and 3 away to the West Indies after the World Cup.

    Not really the Ashes but -

    Last week Boyd Rankin, playing for England, dismissed Ed Joyce of Ireland. In the 2007 World Cup Rankin - then playing for Ireland - dismissed Joyce who was then playing for England.
    Pretty cool

    You have missed the best bit about that - both times Joyce was dismissed for 1.

    In 2002/03, Matthew Hayden scored 197 at the Gabba.
    In 2006/07, Ricky Ponting scored 196 at the Gabba.
    In 2010/11, Michael Hussey scored 195 at the Gabba.

    Who's going to continue the trend?

    Will the mods be keeping a running total of infractions for the two sides?

    Just a thought 'cos I reckon Australia will win that one so they'll be able to draw some comfort from a consolation prize
