    Ashes focus: Vaughan's one-day record, anonymous Ian Bell and a rejuvenated Gough

    Michael Vaughan's poor batting stats in one-dayers are well documented. Michael Walter William Selvey reckons that Vaughan really has to shape up, or he'll be shipped out.

    Now that Pevin Kietersen has apparently justified his fans' faith, he has been hogging all the headlines. Meanwhile, Ian Bell is very anonymously going about his job and given that it is highly likely that he has a higher chance of figuring in the Ashes tests, Australia are definitely not letting him out of their sights.

    Darren Gough, who has been written off several times over, is apparently 34 going on 21, and is working really hard on his fitness as well as technical aspects of his bowling.

    Meanwhile, Australia followed up their Twenty20 loss to England with yet another defeat, this time to Somerset, who are middle of the pack in the second division of the County Championship and the National League.

    Several English players and graphics artists are rubbing their hands in glee at Australia's consecutive defeats. Lest we forget, Australia were beaten by a Sri Lankan and a South African playing for an English county. Yes, the fact that they lost will certainly worry them. But this does not mean that England will defeat Australia, in our opinion at least.

    Even granted Smith and Jayasuriya got 100's, from 6 for 291, Australia should have won that game. That's the concerning thing.

    I think England will do very well in the one dayers- not sure about the Tests though.
