Ashes 2021 - 4-0

It is that time again and we need a dedicated thread to discuss this

Pre pandemic I was planning to visit Oz with Barmy Army to watch the Melbourne test but maybe next time.

We did thump them in the World Cup t20

But come test matches I think Australia will be a different beast altogether


Hereís is to a month of cricket festival and it is on BT this time round and I am dreading who will be doing the commentary.

Maybe like football they need to do a fanís commentary

An interesting series.

Englands chances will depend on how fit Stokes is, but also, if someone else other than Root can put some good runs on the board.
I'm just not sure we have enough bowling to regularly get 20 wickets.

I've little time for Paine, and he's beyond average, so not ideal that he could well be out of the team now.

Unless you’re thinking of going to the pub from midnight until the wee hours or the wee hours until lunchtime, I doubt it !

Warne reckons Paine needs to go and get some fresh blood.

I agree we donít enough bowlers who can take 20 wickets and apart from Root a batsman who can score big

It is looking promising already haha

Stokes can score big. But heís been out of action for a long time now. Be surprised if he sets the world on fire this series.

3-1 Aussies

If one player could come out from long term injury and score big, it's Stokes.

Agreed

A lot to ask in an Ashes series in Oz though

I was wondering why Sky weren't plugging it!

Can we take 20 wickets in Perth? Can't see it I'm afraid.

That's really annoying.....I like an early start watching an hour or two of the cricket in the morning......not getting BT just for that though

BT have had all Aussie home games for a while. They also had the last Ashes over there. Viewing figures even worse than Sky’s, which are also dire.

Not sure there will be a Perth Test. They were reluctant to open their borders without a lengthy quarantine and the Premier has been backed by the population by his stance.

Ah okay. I always think the Perth test is the highlight. Even though we always lose...

It's also better viewing from the Northern Hemisphere, only 8 hours difference means its on until 11:00am for us Europeans!

Any chance the games could be played in good spirit? Not necessarily kisses and cuddles all round - but a lack of general twatish-ness would be nice. For example, the taking of a wicket has become way too over-celebrated these days. Hopefully England can set an example after both wickets they'll take on day one at Brisbane.

Perth is the only ground I have ever visited in Australia and it reminded me of Oval, a flat batting pitch. Shame if there is no test there but safety comes first
