On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If it's going to help the issue of player burnout, then I'm all for it.

    But that's the problem with having the Ashes in even numbered years - it will clash with something. Had they brought it forward to 2012 it would clash with the Olympics - which definately are coming here.

    Then keep the home series when it was and move the series in Australia - either way they're still one and a half, and two and a half years apart.

    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.

    Exactly. Why on Earth they remotely considered moving the home Ashes from an odd-numbered year I'll never know.

    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.
