Ashes Tickets are selling like hot cakes

The English Cricket fan has an infinite capacity for punishment.

This is borne out by the fact that the “Cricket fans snapped up tickets for next year's Ashes series yesterday, with the first three days of the third Test at Edgbaston sold out within hours."

I doubt whether Indian cricket fans would have shown similar enthusiasm to watch another 5-0 drubbing.

The old saying is that (s/w) developers are eternal optimist. Perhaps it's time we change that. :)

There's belief this time. before the 5-0 there was just hope. Think England is getting better. Aus, the reverse. If i was an Englishman, I'd be buying too.

The belief is based on one single victory.

Indians need not fear him. After all it is easy to dust a flint off.
