England To Get More Tests

What great news. Pakistan will now have two tests and two Twenty20 games against Australia next summer. In England.

More cricket.

Truly excellent.

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.

Ashes Squad Announcement

Today is the day. Judgement day. Ashes day. There should be some sort public holiday, some type of flower should be worn (NWG opts with a red rose).

Who'll be in?

Michael Vaughan - doubtful.
Steve Harmison - likely.
Matthew Hoggard - in NWG's dreams.
Ryan Sidebottom - if he's in, NWG will cry.
James Foster/Matt Prior - hmmm, interesting.

She's too nervous to write.

Update:

No Steve Harmison. Ok. But Ryan? Really? NWG is relieved that Graeme Swann is in there.

She's been so looking forward to this summer and now, when it comes down to it, she has a nasty feeling. Arrrrrrrrggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh. When will it be over?????
