Australia Are Playing. Like. Right. Now.

And so the time has come. There's no more excuses. No more tournaments or Test matches in between.

The Ashes are here.

And Australia are having a warm-up game against Sussex. And it seems all is not well (already).

Who had money on Shane Watson being injured before he was even able to get on the field? NWG wishes she had placed that bet.

Australia are currently 63-2. Ponting made a grand old total of 8.

NWG isn't sure why she's glad that Ponting isn't getting a good run. England are yet to play their warm-up games. And she knows it's going to be bad.

However hard Australia try to be rubbish, England will always find a way of usurping them - I predict a thrashing by Warwickshire with Andrew Flintoff injured, Kevin Pietersen announcing a shock retirement and Andrew Strauss crying like a baby. Us English are a pessimistic bunch.

David, you may well be right. NWG is thinking of starting a betting ring for things most likely to happen.

KP's retirement - 10/1
Andrew Flintoff injured - 2/1
Alastair Cook batting in a skirt - 11/3
Ryan Sidebottom getting his head shaved - 500/1
Ian Bell growing ten inches - 4000/1
Matthew Hoggard making a shock comeback and making a hat trick in his first over - 1/1

Please add any others that spring to mind.

Murtagh - thanks for the update.
