Ashes: Well-deserved win for England, Aussies back to the drawing board!

England truly deserved to win after fighting performances from pretty much all there players throughout this series. The Aussies never really looked like an unbeatable side this series. They have struggled through out. Now that England has finally won the Ashes, it will be interesting to see how the Aussies cope with defeat at the hands of the English (wait to see the British press rub it in and claim global dominance!)

In any case, I am very very curious to see how Cricket Australia copes with this defeat. My guesses… John Buchanan’s term is over. Someone at the top has to go and Buchanan is a safe bet. It will be interesting to see how many of the current team will survive for the next tour. I suspect Martyn, Katich, Gillespie and Kasparovich will be dumped for the next tour. I won’t be surprised if they take a bold step and name a new captain for ODIs with a look ahead to the world cup. Cricket Australia has its task cut out…
