Well, it was certainly an amazing winter to be working on Test Match Special!
I'm not sure England's incredible Ashes success has sunk in even now. Did England really win three Tests by an innings in Australia? Did Jonathan Agnew really perform a strange dance routine on the outfield at the SCG? Then there was the World Cup with the rollercoaster ride of England's campaign before the tournament's thrilling climax with Mahendra Dhoni fulfilling the hopes and dreams of a billion Indian fans as they defeated Sri Lanka in Mumbai.
It will be a difficult act to follow - but this promises to be a summer full of intrigue with the teams who contested that final at the Wankhede Stadium both touring - and both will be coached by men who have recently worked as Test Match Special summarisers, Stuart Law and Duncan Fletcher.
