Aussies seek Ashes inspiration

Australia's cricket team enter an Ashes series that means more than usual to a nation struggling for sporting success.

    Gone are the days when Australia dominated the sporting world. 

    Disappointment at the 2012 Olympics, and more recently against the Lions, means the pressure is on the nation's cricket team to reclaim some of their old glory.

    However, it will not be easy, with many expecting a strong England squad to dominate the series. 

    Al Jazeera's Lee Wellings reports from Nottingham - where the first Test begins on Wednesday.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
