OK, they don't start for another 12 hours but I'm excited and apprehensive at the same time. This is a must-win, or most definitely a don't-lose (a draw wouldn't be the end of the world).
Alistair Cook says that the rivalry in the first Test 'went over the top'. I disagree. Bar Clarke dropping the F-bomb which was caught on stump mic, this was exactly how I expected it to be and how it invariably is Down Under in an Ashes series.
Root is probably moving up to 3, Bres is expected to replace Tremlett and there is the possibility of Gary Ballance being introduced at 6.
I can't help feeling that Prior needs a decent showing with the bat this time as he has been falling short far too often of late and would like to see Bairstow given the gloves and a chance to swing the willow.
Hostilities will resume at midnight UK time and I for one hope England come out fighting, verbally or otherwise.
