In our 2013-14 Ashes preview podcast, Alastair Symondson and John Pennington look ahead to this winter's series and the first Test in Brisbane.
As England prepare to take on Australia in a bid to win a fourth straight Ashes contest, there is a difference of opinion in the studio about whether the series will be a close one or not.
The pair then discuss Kevin Pietersen as he prepares to play in his 100th Test, talk about technology with real-time snickometer being used for the first time, the odds and why polls are suggesting that nearly three-quarters of Australians think they will win the series 2-1.
The series gets underway in less than 12 hours and with live scores, match reports, tweets, podcasts and videos, Cricket World has The Ashes covered.
