Mystic Aggers

Amid today's celebrations, it is worth sparing a minute to read this article by Jon Agnew. It was written on 21 August 2004:

England are a very good team. It is interesting that none of the players, or indeed the coach Duncan Fletcher, would speculate about how they would fare against Australia right now.

"It's a long way away", was all they said, wary I am sure of making big statements that could blow up in their faces next summer, but there is no harm in those of us in the media doing it for them.

If England can play as well as they did in this match against Australia next summer, they will have a real chance of winning the Ashes.
