Aggers meets @theashes

    Jonathan with the 22 year old American who landed a trip to Sydney - all because of her Twitter name.

      Being a good sport about all the cricket tweets had something to do with the trip surely?

      Any chance of putting the interview on the website for those of us who occasionally have to sleep?

      Yes can you get the interview up? I was sort of listening but fell asleep around the tea break! She has been pretty savvy - hope it all goes towards her getting the job that she really wants.

      I agree - come on BBC, put the interview up on the website!

      Please do post or podcast the interview! It's a great cricket/internet combination story for our time.

      The interview is on the site, I listened to it at lunchtime (UK time).

      Go to the cricket site and look to the right. The link is there.

      The interview woke me up although I can't remember much about it now but I'd love to hear it again. I've never heard anyone talk so quickly!

      Saw @theashes' initial tweets of dismay and consternation, as she got bombarded and was clearly overwhelmed, gradually give way to open-minded tweets and then curiosity about Cricket and...the Ashes. Then came the interview on the phone with Aggers, and his encouragement to make it to Oz. And here she is, in Sydney, embracing the game. The power of the Tweet.

      So it's true - she's NOT a freaking cricket match :-)
