Ready for The Ashes?

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, when Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook opened the batting for England, I didn’t listen to TMS with my heart in my mouth, waiting for one of them to get himself out in some daft way. How things have changed. I’ll be a bag of nerves when we start batting and much happier when we’re bowling. Joe Root says he’s not worried about England’s batting. He should be. Still, Edgbaston is a great ground for England, rowdy and passionate, so let’s be optimistic. Roll on 11am tomorrow!
