Alright then, visa approved: Pakistan next week for #PAKvAUS. Cannot wait.
And yes, obviously I was so harrowed by the Ashes that I've just decided to join the Australian press pack. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, yada yada… But really, I just wanted any excuse to go. I've found it. Happy, happy days.
