    I'd rather win the Ashes, but England have been so poor at ODI cricket for so long that a World Cup doesn't even feature in my thoughts. I have some hope for the current side going forward though, and would I sacrifice the next away series (tightly fought 3-2 or something) for a World Cup? Possibly, yes.

    Most English people would,it be amazing for England to win the cricket world cup with these young guys playing fearless attacking cricket.

    Not winning the WC at home would've been a kick in the guts

    Losing the Ashes away during footy season on a night when we beat the ABs and our swimmers rediscovered their mojo?

    All seems a bit irrelevant as there is probably another one coming up next week

    World cup. People voting ashes are crazy. blahblahblah tests are more pure than ODIs or whatever. a 10+ team comp will also mean more to me than a 2 team comp, regardless of the history. I don't hate England enough to care about a silly rivalry anyway, I just enjoy cricket. Besides we're a good chance at winning it next time it's held here anyway

    Obviously it should sit atop a high pedal stool, but not that high it can't reach the pedals.

    I probably measure it by the hurt of not winning it, rather than the joy of the win. So probably the Ashes; particularly a home series.

    Haha, so true.

    If the Ashes didn't feel like it was played every 6 months it'd be different...

    Really devalued the whole thing recently IMO e.g. let's play a series every year and if things aren't going well, let's doctor the pitches

    2 really ordinary teams that only remain important to their own countrymen
