    Well, this sucks. The local channel that claims to broadcast the wide world of cricket, Willow, isn't broadcasting The Ashes. No, what I'm getting instead are reruns and highlight reels of Zimbabwe in India, or is it the other way around, and—/* running for a Tylenol and a shot of 1800 */—T20.

    I think Willow never reached an agreement with EWCB.. only time I ever see the English is when they're touring and another network with whom Willow has a partnership can broadcast with impunity.

    But judging from what I've seen of both the English and Australian sides in the last year or so, it would surprise me if England didn't give Oz a run for their money.. or if Oz didn't actually win even after having been given a run for their money. I've seen Oz fielding some absolute beasts (Warner, Maxwell, and I've seen Smith start to come into his own) but haven't really seen the like from the English. But see above: I rarely get to see the English...

    British English usage, not American English. We'd say "Genesis is touring", lumping the band into a single entity; they say "Genesis are touring", kind of a shorthand for having to say "Banks, Collins, and Rutherford et al. are touring".

    Incorrect, though. The band are touring isn't as bad as the car are stopping, but it's the same poor usage.

    A unit as a noun is singular. It depends on the sentence structure, though.

    Correct usage looks like this:

    The box is on the shelf.

    The corn flakes are on the shelf.

    The box of corn flakes is on the shelf.

    I'm not going to go any further with this, as some people from the UK are probably confused already

    I think this actually started with bands, because other than a one man band, which is an oxymoron, a band always has more than one person in it.

    It starts sounding stupid to me when people say "the company are". A company is regarded as a single entity.

    The company is sending its sales representatives.

    They are going to be running up expense accounts.

    If the name of the team is plural, no.

    You could say "The Rolling Stones are on tour. The band is going to start the tour at Leeds".

    You wouldn't (or at least, I wouldn't) say "Paul McCartney are on tour", even though he is touring with a band and entourage.
