The scramble for Ashes tickets


Now that I finally have my tickets to the fourth Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in December, I can now start looking forward to the actual cricket come Boxing Day. This is said to be the most anticipated Ashes test series in Australia for years and justifiably so because England won the last series and got the Ashes and now is the time for Australia to reclaim the Ashes.
But for me, having watched the way England played against Sri Lanka in the just ended three match series I am now thinking that this may not be an exciting series after all but a one sided series with Australia in charge. The England that we watched last year getting the Ashes doesnít seem to be the same with the England playing now. When England toured the sub-continent I expected them to struggle a bit and I therefore didnít read too much in the results but I expected them to play better against Sri Lanka at home and they didnít. Whether they missed Michael Vaughan too much or not I just donít know.
On the other hand, since losing the Ashes, Australia has gone from strength to strength notably winning back to back tests against South Africa and should be able to easily contain England. This is why when I look at the ticket for the third day I just wonder whether I will actually use it but its up to England to prove me wrong.
I therefore wait with bated breadth for the four match test series that England is going to play against Pakistan next month. Hopefully Vaughan will play and it is my hope that the series will give us a good indicator of how our own cricket of summer will unfold and whether I will be able to use the third day MCG test after all.

According to the England Cricket Board Michael Vaughan will not be available for this summer's Ashes tour following his knee surgery. It will be very hard for England to replace him but I hope that the eventual England team will make this Ashes tour an interesting one.
