Hmm. Probably fair enough in all honesty as the current scheduling means the premier ODI comp & the oldest Test series are within a few months of each other. However I'd dispute that it was the schdule that hampered our chances in the WC; it was more the ****eness for mine.

I would prefer they change the WC tbh
You know it makes sense.
Its just common sense really (especially with our obsession with the Ashes. Keeping the two away from each other will make the WC the highlight of the winter. Some people will say it doesn't hinder Australia - but they are at home. i wonder how the Aussies would like four months away before the WC.
Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

Thing is, they've now rescheduled the Ashes in England to 2014, which will most likely clash directly with the football World Cup. Good job, ECB.
It's a great shame we lose The Ashes as a odd-number-year thing. The home part of the reschedule is very much a bad thing.
But the away part is one of the most obvious things in history, and I simply cannot believe it wasn't done years ago. It was suggested during this winter's tour and my only thoughts were "at last!"
Of course, I find it ludicrous to suggest that our prospects in either competition last winter were hampered by the other - we just weren't that good.
But it's always best to have one less thing on the problems-list.

The WC was moved from the even years so it didn't clash with the Sydney Olympics, and was moved a year forward to go to odd years. Should have kept it on the Olympic years, or moved it to Winter Olympic years, and we wouldn't have this problem.
As I say - the away one's been needing moving for years, but to have home Ashes in an even-numbered year is plain madness.
At least if recent series are to be gone by the Euro XXXX \ World Cup will be over by the time it starts.
