2003 Ashes Part 1 was not an unbridled success if you follow the baggy green. Sacking the coach just before the series starts is not always a good sign. Off field issues with key players have not helped. Chopping and changing the lineup, making major changes to the batting and bowling roster for each test has also been a little distracting. Poor use of the DRS system, and issues with the DRS technology when it was used have been an annoying factor. The media performance of the replacement Coach will certainly add some ginger to the return series, and may ultimately be rather counterproductive and lead to some unsavoury crowd behaviours. We were done like a Labrador dogs breakfast. The stage is set for Ashes 2013 - the Sequel. Is there sufficient skill and ticker in the team to reverse the results of Part 1?
