I don't see any reason why this young team should not go out and play the same game they have done over the past few weeks, go out and enjoy it and give it their all because that's all they can do and see where it takes us, ... This week is a great opportunity for the team to cement their place in the history of the game of cricket and it's great that we are in a position to do that.
The obvious question on everyone's lips is now Can England win the Ashes. We're playing good cricket, ... Challenges have been thrown at us over the last few weeks and we've done alright in the last few. The Oval I'm sure will be an epic like the last three. Can we do it for the last game I'm not too sure if we can but sure we will do.
We want to have a good long chat with Freddie. It's his home ground, he knows the conditions. Over the last year or so we haven't played that much here. We want to look at the options - normal swing, reverse swing, bounce, all the areas you cover at any game of cricket. We'll just have a good chat this afternoon.
