Posted:Whos been watching this gripping series between England and Australia?

I hated cricket for years but got into it properly a couple of summers ago and have loved the game ever since. This years ashes has been the most exciting competition I've watched so far and I was a bit suprised to not have seen any threads on it considering the large Aussie and English membership.

So, can England hold on for the win? Will Australia pull something out of the bag to get them back?

Your thoughts ladies and gents smile

true but i was just pointing out its more boring than cricket (though i find cricket fun) and it is a complete waste of time and effort you could enjoy yourself more going for a walk in some really nice natural countryside

Its the Ashes again biggrin

Australia is hosting the competition and currently England are taking something of a 'thumping' (thanks for the vocab George W).

Is anyone else following it?- Its really annoying not being able to watch any due to the time difference (though I did get to listen to a bit whilst convoying back from BOB with Bov last night... smile
