Ace idea: Let's play the next two installments of that little-watched series the Ashes back-to-back and get it out the way so that we can make sure another 50-over World Cup goes uninterrupted. Because let's face it, we can't get enough of those Super Six phases, can we? Always sell-outs, they are.
'To ensure that the teams have better preparation time for the World Cup, this is the only solution, but I also think it's absolutely manageable,' says Steve Elworthy of the ECB. Give that man an MBE.
Anyway, as the next two Ashes are over and done with in a few months, you'll need something to wear, won't you? Try this then. Not sure it's philosophical, but it don't half feel good...
