The Ashes - Surely the site of Australia crash to humbling defeat, again, is too good to be true.
I mean there are plenty of reasons not to take the Twenty20 result along with this beating at the hands of a mid-table county side too seriously, but surely England, if they can stay fit, confident and focussed have their best chance of coming out on top this side of 1986?!

Wisden interviews Graham Thorpe. Read: Cricinfo - The little genius in the corner. ""I would say a lot of the mental strength in cricket is to make the right decisions as many times as possible and not to be intimidated," he says. "The only time I can remember falling down was in my third Test when I was facing Shane Warne and Ian Healy said I was going to play for a red-inker [a not out]. My pride took over and I thought, `Sod you, I'll show you I'm not playing for a red-inker.' I bolted down the wicket and got stumped. [He had made 60].
