    Didn't know that, very happy if true. Makes it feel way more special.

    Different question - would you play Ben Stokes?

    I'll take the ashes (men's and women's) over the world cups. Just as I'd rather beat the West Indies in a test series in the 80's. The World Cup is fun as well though

    For now yeah. But given the 2019 World Cup will be followed by the Ashes, they've set themselves up perfectly to use the excuse of 'World Cup and Ashes too close' after that

    Well yeah, it'll be down to the Aussies to try and shift it I guess, given it's our home WC so we shouldn't be too fussed. (In theory)

    So the next away one the 2017? Am I right in thinking we've shifted from 18 months from Aus-English series and then 30 from Eng-Aus, whereas it was previously the other way round?

    i think that aussies would go towards World Cup if we didn't win every second one

    like if it was "WOOOO GO US WE WON A WORLD CUP THIS IS SO RARE" as opposed to a "hey dude you want another World Cup?" "not sure if there's any room left in my cabinet sorry mate"

    14 years since australia won a series in england. you surely can't tell me it would feel like just another ashes win at this stage.
