Ashes for the Brits!!

After 16 long years of strangle hold on the coveted Ashes, it is now high time that the Aussies humbly pass it on to the English. It may have been some time now for me since I stopped following the whole game of Cricket. But this news has brought some fresh life into the Cricketing world.

Now, you may be wondering how the English managed to recover from 34/1 in their second innings with just 6 runs lead to start off with. Thank the Aussies who dropped (yes. Thats no typo) Pieterson who mercilessly punished them for their drops by scoring all the way upto 158. Thanks to that, even though Pieterson was the eighth man out, England had amassed 335 for the Aussies to get further over-confident.

The World Champions who came down to bat, only to go down 4/0 before they accepted an offer of bad-light and hence the historic, long awaited defeat. Now, England has the Ashes just for them.

Yes this season has been a welcome change, and similarly would have loved Agassi to beat Federer, followed the game completely but that didnt happen. None the less it was brilliant. :)
