The weather has changed in London. It's no longer like Singapore; more like nice English summer weather. No need for three showers a day, and it's possible to enjoy being outside again. Pictured is Regent's Park this lunchtime.

Good. Wouldn't really give a damn from here, but for the test match at the Oval next week. :)

Bit less rain/bad weather than last year's, and all will be good.

Should be a good game England seem to be on a roll at the moment - Panesar has added an extra dimension to the attack. For the ashes, with Flinotff and S Jones back in contention, England might just stand a chance.

Stand a chance? Christ, you Pommies are pessimistic.

I think that if they play this top 6 with Flintoff as 7 (going with the 4 bowler option of Harmy/Hoggard or Jones/Flintoff/Panesar), they'll have a very good chance of retaining the Ashes.

Beating Australia from what I've noticed isn't about the bowling. If the batting's strong enough to put runs on the board, Australia's batting will put pressure on themselves and struggle (and heck, that's the main reason India drew in 03/04 - the strength of in form Dravid/Laxman/Sehwag with Ganguly and Tendulkar contributing).
