So the waiting is nearly over as the boys fly down under to keep the Ashes. The hype can only crank up a gear or two now both here and in Oz – seems that England stole the Ashes last time (admittedly it was closer than the series result would show in Wisden) and that it’s time for them to take them back?
For all the soul searching and discussions over the selectors decisions and other off field issues, we are where we are and it’s time to support the team.
So 26 days until the first ball at the Gabbatoir, 26 days until all the hype is over, 26 days until I fulfil the dream of a lifetime!
Time to start packing!
