Justin Langer has turned his attention straight to the Ashes with the prospect of Australia's healthiest fast-bowling cartel in almost a decade.
Langer on Thursday signed off on Australia's World Cup campaign, left disappointed by the team's exit in the semi-final to England.
Australia's multi-format players have been given a week off to recover from the one-day campaign, with most getting away from cricket.
But less than three weeks out from the first Test at Edgbaston on August 1, Langer's mind won't stop ticking.
Australia are in pursuit of their first Ashes series win on English soil since 2001, a tour which Langer began as a No.3 batsman and ended as opener alongside Matthew Hayden.
"I've had my heart set on July 14 (the World Cup final) for probably 12 months," Langer said.
"We got to July 11, we fell a few days short. That's disappointing. We would have liked to be there. We'd rather be in England's (position).
"But we have to turn to it now. We know this has been an unprecedented time in Australian cricket, a World Cup and then an Ashes.
"We'll dust ourselves off, recharge our batteries, there will probably be six or seven guys (from the World Cup squad) who will be in the Ashes as well.
"We need to recharge and then start a whole new campaign. We'll take some lessons out of this but it's another big campaign."
Langer was unsure what impact an England win or loss in Sunday's World Cup final against New Zealand would have on their Ashes campaign.
But he knows what he has in his stocks.
This series will mark the first time in their international careers that quicks Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and James Pattinson are all fit and available at the same time.
Jhye Richardson could also still feature, with the West Australian quick understood to be fit to return to cricket for a tour match between the first and second Tests.
Starc, Cummins and Hazlewood are considered the favourites for August 1, but Pattinson took seven wickets in Australia A's opening red-ball tour match while Hazlewood took none.
Australia A play again against the England Lions in a four-day match starting Sunday, before the 22-man all-Australia match in Southampton on July 23.
"It's nice to have them all fit," Langer said.
"For the Ashes we have a number of very good players who are up and running which is good.
"Jhye Richardson, who is a very exciting talent, he'll come back into the fold at some stage.
"We've got lots of bowling talent in Australia. The key is to keep them fit and healthy. And if we do that we'll always be competitive."
