I've been having an interesting Wall-to-Wall exchange with Spigot over on Facebook.
It's gone like this -
Spigot: You realise that as he (James Anderson) did it yesterday it's clearly obvious that he will do this every single day next summer...
Me: You hope.
Spigot: Well "you hope" sounds a lot better than "you wish"... I'll take that for now, you're clearly deeply unsettled over the Windies series...
While I have no doubt that Mr Spigot was not being serious (right?), I have noticed that some people of the English variety do seem to think that England's performance against New Zealand (and, to a lesser extent, Australia's performance against the West Indies) is a reflection of how the Ashes will fare next year.
I, however, see it as a reflection of how shoddy New Zealand are at the moment. England versus South Africa may be a better indication.
Although I suppose we should thank the Kiwis for luring the English into a false sense of security (I will personally thank Daniel Vettori later).
But even so, let's not pre-empt anything.
