    Which among the two is the major attraction of coming summer?

    WC since NZ actually competes. Pretty close though but I find it hard to support this English team and very difficult to support any Australian team.

    Losing to England in Australia would be truly heartbreaking. Honestly couldn't contemplate it.

    Doubt Ill watch a single game of the WC. Im always excited about the Ashes and even more so that Ill be in roughly the same time zone this time and there is a small chance I could get out to Aus for a game or two.

    The Ashes has me pants-wettingly excited for months in advance. Prefer watching cricket broadcast from Australia too, for time zone reasons and also because I think it generally provides better cricket to watch.

    It really would be the best thing ever wouldn't it?

    Never going to happen though so not even worth thinking about.

    I will just enjoy our customery one fluke test match win, just like the last time we toured in 2002/2003

    Ashes by a mile.

    If it were the football world cup, though, then I would be quite torn.

    Thought about that when I saw the thread title. England win the world cup or the Ashes in Australia? a tough one. Think the ashes would mean more to me personally though, have a somewhat difficult relationship with our football team.

    ODI WC obviously, as always.

    More so this time as after a long time there'll be no champion team in the Ashes. A test series between a moderate and a good test team, that's it. Big deal! :P
