    I'm a kiw and I'm supporting Aus. They play the most exciting cricket and I enjoy their brilliant dominance against other teams and england are not a team I like.

    So go aussie.

    England. Because Australia wins all the time and it's annoying. And because they are next in line to be number one.

    I hate English sports teams and support every other team they are playing against in any sport..

    I support all other teams when they are playing against Aus as well other than England.

    So the Ashes are quite fun for me because it's the only time in cricket that I actually want Australia to do well and I can sit back and watch their briliance and actually enjoy it.

    I like the Australian team and enjoy watching them play at their best, so I'd like to see them do well. Above all though I want to see a competitive Ashes series. It's a special event having the Ashes be 1st vs 2nd, and it hasn't happened for 30 years or so, so it would be disappointing if Australia ran away with it.

    My tip is 3-1.

    Haha, perhaps not. I don't think of myself as a particularly parochial supporter mind you, but I AM Australian.

    Guess I missed the thread title and just read the opening post.

    I'm indian, and I'm supporting England. I like the English team, they're not a bad unit anymore. They have a few good men as well. Also, being Indian, I will always be against a team that is better than us - Australia.

    this is a toughie.

    As an IND fan, i would like to see ENG get smashed 5-0 so they drop behind IND in rankings

    But as a cricket fan, i would like to see a wonderfully played close series with the victor taking it 3-2 in closely faught matches...
    and since my cricket fan aspect trumps my IND fan aspect, i would have to say i dont care for the result as long as its a well contested series.

    Foolish thing u have to be joking, England been consitent for the last 2 years whereas India were really good last year but haven't done anything since. England are easiler the beater side ATM.
