Can England regain the Ashes?

Victoria Derbyshire | 09:37 UK time, Wednesday, 8 July 2009

The Ashes kicks off today in Cardiff. The programme is coming live from the ground from 10.

strauss_152x203.jpgIn the build up to today's first Test, listeners taking part in 5Live Sport with Mark Pougatch last night told him they were delighted to have the First Test here. The front of the Western Mail's headline is this - "As Wales welcomes the Ashes, we say....Come on England".

I was chatting to Aggers last night - turns out he's a big fan of Twitter (you can follow me on Twitter, look for vicderbyshire). I also met the legendary Australian commentator Jim Maxwell. His 15 year old boy is pretty good at cricket he was telling me, so I asked him how I could get my 5 year old into it. "Give it a year" he said in his dry Australian twang.

Join us for the build up. We'll be hearing from England's spin bowler Graeme Swann, you can hear the toss live at 1030, plus we'll talk to the parents of Australia's opening batsman Philip Hughes.

And the big question is - Can England regain the Ashes?
