Ashes to ashes

The news that an Ashes cricket Test match will be played in Cardiff in 2009 has not gone down too well in England, where a number of people seem to think that the existence of the Welsh Assembly has given us an unfair advantage in the bidding war.

Nevertheless, I think I can safely predict that seats at next month's Council planning committee meeting will be very rare indeed. Will we see ticket touts outside of Cardiff County Hall? We will have to wait and see.
As Welsh players tend to play for England (is there a Welsh national cricket team?) I think its fair enough.

Its good to get more high level cricket across the country (and I assume its a realistic financial prospect as well).
