The Ashes

Lumme, I can hardly bear it. England look set (fingers crossed!) to take the Ashes for the first time in eighteen years. The whole series has been amazing — even I’ve watched a fair bit of it (and I swore off cricket thanks to compulsory after-school matches at my prep school in my youth!) So, a big cheer to the English and Australian teams for giving us such a treat this summer!

BBC Live: England v Australia.


  1. And we're done. Splendid:
    Australia batted for just four balls before bad light intervened, and a draw was eventually declared by the umpires.

    The result brings to an end a series many have dubbed the "best ever".
