Hooray! Both Trottie and KP have made the Ashes team. I am delighted, because we need both of them, and they are both hugely entertaining players.
The team will be Strauss, (Capt.), Anderson, Bell, Brest, Broad, Cook, Collingwood, Davies, Finn, Morgan, Panesar, Pietersen, Prior, Swann, Tremlet, Trott. Australia are no longer the threat they used to be. Their aura has slipped, with the demise of Aussie legends like Shane Warne , whereas English are on the up. Bursting with talent, this is an English team to be proud of.
