Ashes Newses

Marcus Gone

England opener Marcus Trescothick has flown home due to reoccurance of stress related problems. This was not expected because on arriving to Australia he said he is now feeling fresh after skipping champions trophy. It's a big blow to the England side as he was one of the turning point of the last ashes.

Billy Bowden to observe self imposed media ban

One of the umpires to officiate in the Ashes first test along with veteran Bucknor will observe a self imposed media ban in the week leading to the test.

He said

"I'll let you do your job and I will do mine. I won't be talking about anything. It
will be no comment about everything. Obviously you have to do your job. I don't want
to be rude but it's just no comment."

Billy is also coming up with some new signals specially for the Ashes.

Aggression Continues

The act of aggression/rash behavior is on, now not by Australian players but infact by australian crowd abusing Monty Panesar.

One of the fan abused:

“Give us a wave Monty. You can’t speak English you stupid Indian, I’ll have to say it
in Indian. What are you doing playing in the English side, you’re not English,”

England have not lodged any official complaint but this can affect the morale of the players and team. Racial abuse was on the zenith during the South Africans tour downunder.
