    Pom's whinging about Itinerary.

    They reckon a weakened WA side and a 2nd xl NSW will be crap,maybe they are right.Sure the boys will have a go.

    Screw them. We're less likely to win the Ashes back if we give them good warm up games.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Maybe they should have given us quality warm ups then.

    I blame the warm ups for their 2-1 win in India. 3 ****ing warm ups where they were kept in check by completely mediocre sides like Mumbai A, meant they knew what they had to work on before the Tests started.

    honestly, it's ridiculous that touring nations like England invariably demand better warmups than the host nations themselves. They don't arrive by boat anymore. Half their players play in domestic teams around the world.

    The sport is professional. Crazy long schedules that include more than one warmup match are just unsustainable.

    England get to play a full 4 day game against Aus 'A' in Hobart before the series though don't they? Sounds good enough to me

    I even made a domestic thread

    It can't be a coincidence that England insist on proper warm up matches and are also one of the only teams that actually win away Test matches of any note.
