    Hi friends, I am a cricket maniac and I am really excited about the forthcoming Test series between the host England and the visitors Australia. They will be seen in action in later half of July for the most prestigious The Ashes Trophy, 2005. England will be playing for glory and Australia will be playing to defend the trophy as they are doing it for the last 9 years. This time English players like Kevin Peterson, Harmison & Andrew Flintoff will be heavy for Australia. Last night I came across a very good site named from where I got the latest informations about The Ashes Series 2005.Looking towards the past, bowling department of the teams will be the playing factor. Now let’s see which side makes the race.

    The Aussies gave England a gentle reminder of what we can do in the last couple of one day matches. I'm predicting a 3-1 series win to us, Strauss to be McGrath's 500th test wicket and Hayden to be man of the series. GO AUSSIES!!

    Didn't Australia recently lose an ODI to Bangladesh?

    How is that even possible?

    because they are more beatable than their simpleton fans believe.
    although that game was early in the tour.

    England have just made a big mistake in my opinion.

    Thorpe left out of the squad to face Aus in the first Ashes test. Thorpe is our most experienced and steady batsman. I would love to see Pietersen given a go but they should have dropped Bell, not our best player.

    not an excuse but australia are known for slow starts to tours and such- jsut look at the last world cup.

    they are beatable, but come'on, no one could foresee them losing to the bangers. momentum is defintely on the aussies side i'd say, with the natwest challenge win, and big shane ready to attack!

    Or better still, for "Aussie" fans... go here: :D

    BigFooty's Cricket Forum. Plenty and plenty of discussion and information over there that people might want to read and discuss over here (just labouring thoughts here).

    They probably will win, if they are at there bes then they win, but if they are not then England can give them a game.

    Unfortunately we didn't win the series.
