Game on!

Tomorrow morning, at about 7.30am Perth local time, it starts. The bloodbath in Brisbane is the opening round of the 2006/2007 Ashes, and it’s going to be something. There’s a lot of talk about how the series will progress, who will win how many Tests and so on. I might be wrong, but I think it’s going to be short and brutal for the POMS. I’m not sure five zip is possible, but I’d expect 4-nil as a possible outcome. I do wonder if any of the games will go to four days. I think by 5pm on Thursday we’ll have a pretty good idea of how the summer might unfold.
