ashes england wins

contd from here…well well…england regained ashes 🙂 with a massive victory. the decider was well set, england needed at least a win and australia a mere draw. i think the match was set up hugely in favor of england when they bowled out australia for 160 in first innings taking a lead of 170 odd runs. Trott cemented their chances with a debut century in the second innings and set a target of 546 for australia to chase in two days. the way things were proceeding in the last session of the 4th day, i thought it will be a interesting finish in the last day, wherein australia will need 200 and england 5 wickets for a win. but then its cricket, in last hour of the game, england got all the wickets they needed and hurried themselves to the celebrations. Flintoff did not contribute in this test, however a ashes series win is the best farewell gift he could have wished for from his team mates!
