Can the can

For years, the word was 'could' - backed up with a whole list of caveats and ifs, whereas for Australia it's been a continual 'should', inevitably followed by a resigned 'did'.

In 2005, it started as another 'could', which became a wonderful English 'did'.

Eighteen months later, it was yet another 'could' that descended into a farcical 'didn't'.

The absence of Brett Lee has started me thinking of a subtle shift in the mood, and a change from from 'could' to 'can'.

It's time - bring it on.
