The first warm-up match is next week for the next Ashes, with the 1st test a few weeks away. It's come round quick.
The last series in Australia was a surprisingly humiliating thrashing for the Aussies with 3 innings defeats and English batsmen accumulating huge scores at will. But I feel it won't be quite that easy this time.
Although England were the better team in key moments during this summer's series, Australia have a better bowling attack now and could have made more of good situations.
Plus a few English batsmen aren't quite in tip-top form.
Should be a good contest.
