Hello everyone. Not many people know that Ireland have a cricket team and that last year both Mark and Steve Waugh played for Ireland against Zimbabwe.

There seems to be a little bit of bias in favour of the number of Australians posting here so I thought I'd give my support to England. Memnoch - you know deep down that the only matches that really matter are the Test matches. Give England some credit for their performances against Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

I think that the Ashes will be very exciting this year. Australia are still the best team in the world but at least England now have a team with some backbone. If you come thinking you can win blindfold you may get a suprise.

I'm just joshing with Hesperex, Dublin.

It will be an excellent Ashes series. You have to admit, touring the subcontinent is the hardest tour to make, because the Indian batsmen and spinners really know how to play on those pitches. It's even harder than touring the Carribean in my opinion.

I've heard tell that the most important series to the Aussies now is the South African one and that the Ashes don't really matter. Does it still mean a lot to you to beat the Poms?

Yorick - I'm guessing that you are also an Australian. Yes I do eat, some might say too much - why do you ask?

I've been thinking

This was one of those 'Does a bear shit in the woods?' questions. I get your point Yorick. Sorry oim a bit tick! What I can't understand is why you enjoy beating them so much. They haven't been very good recently. Why does it matter so much to you Australians?

Gray Mage - welcome to the exciting world of cricket. If you see any of the England v Australia games in the summer I recommend you root for the underdogs.

After losing to India they need all the support they can get

I keep telling them, all we need to do is bring back Botham and give the Aussies what-for. They'd be quaking in their boots!
