Well, if you can’t beat the convicts you might as well burn the stumps or something....?

Winning the World Cup is special, but the Ashes ARE the sport. And while it hurts to say it they’re still held by the baggy greens for now, roll on the next one. Archer on a dry fast pitch will be amazing to watch.

Indeed Jim.

I can only go by what I saw in this last series, but it seems to me that he doesn't handle colder weather very well when it comes to producing the pace he's "feared" for. High 80s max when cooler and 92->96mph when warmer.

If it's hot down under when the time comes, look out, Aussies, and Warner had better learn to deal with those out-swingers into the left-hander by then too.
