Almost couldn't watch yesterday's play...almost. How do you go from being bowled out for 160 one day, to 0/80 the next? The mind boggles....

All kudos to the English, however. They deserve their eventual victory. (Surely, Australia can't win it from here? Yes, they have plenty of time, but seriously...)

Oh well, it's all over, England won.

Wonder if the whole team will get OBEs and a massive bus tour through London like the last time.

Well done England. The big turning point was the runout of Ponting - then stumping of Clarke. After that, it was much more inevitable. I was impressed with Trott.

Well, the last time England won the Ashes it had been a long time between drinks, so I can understand the hysteria somewhat. After all, the English aren't nearly as used to winning as we Aussies are...hehehe.

All cheek aside, Congratulations England, on a deserved victory.

heh, yes, I'm with you there StevieG. Apparently, Twenty20 is the next big thing as far as cricket is concerned - and I reckon Warnie is probably right when he says it'll replace ODI cricket - but it doesn't really thrill me.

Wonder how much money the English are losing because of the washouts? Ricky and the boys probably forfit their match payments, but they would be getting something for being available, I would think. As would the English team.

I really hope it doesn't replace ODI cricket (I know - "old man doesn't like change" and all that Laughing ). In 20 overs, Bangladesh could win with a bit of luck. At least the 50 over game requires more than just close your eyes and slog and hope for the best!

Agreed. Twenty20 may be a great spectacle (so I'm told), but it certainly simplifies the cricketing skills needed for the game. No need to be able to read the pitch - it'll be flat and dead, guaranteed. No need to work on your bowling - just short of a length, on or about off-stump will do fine (though, it really doesn't matter; they're going to go the slog no matter what you do.) And no need to worry about your fitness or skills of concentration, either - the game doesn't last that long.

Looks like the 1st one-dayer was a close one - Aussies by 4 runs. Is it on SBS, does anyone know? I can't remember seeing it on the TV guide...

I think it is. I caught the tail end of a match last week, but I thought it looked like Twenty20. I've no idea when they're being shown, however. It certainly isn't being advertised the way the Ashes were. (Or maybe I just haven't looked properly.)

The 50 overs matches dont seem to have the same appeal as the Ashes , they should have had them before the test series when people would have been more interested in them plus 7 one dayers is to much , 5 would have been a better number .

England's Twenty20 form is not that good, I think Australia to win this series also because they are going to want some kind of revenge

Aussies go up 2-0 in the 50 over series. Yeah, 7 one-dayers is probably going too far.

I caught some of the 1st innings last night - it was on free-to-air which was good.

Well, that's now 6-0 for the Aussies. Not that anyone cares too much. Having said that, it's good preparation for the champions trophy coming up in South Africa...

It's a bit bizarre, isn't it? How can we dominate the limited overs game so throughly when the Ashes series was so evenly matched? Glad I'm not a selector.

Looks like Australia and England will meet in the semi-final of the Champions Trophy!

They'll at least be familiar with each other's style of play...

EDIT: And an expected result, Australia crushed England. Now, they tackle the kiwi's in the final. Should be interesting...

Wow, 4 years since the last post here (which is about the amount of time since Australia won the Ashes Laughing )

So, woo hoo - well done Australia for regaining the Ashes!
