Being a supporter of the English Cricket team is always like being on a roller-coaster, (with many more downs than ups). Yesterday provided us with something to celebrate - winning back the Ashes. This is a fantastic achievement and one to savour, not only because of its rarity, but (as England will be going to Australia next year) because of its brevity too.

I've had great fun this summer playing cricket in the back garden with our eldest son. It's only a matter of time though until a window gets broken!

Who will he play for?

Good question Grannymar. Not as tricky as it would be for Rugby because there is not a Welsh cricket team (unless you count Glamorgan). So he would like to play for Ireland. Great to have dreams like that.
