The Ashes are Back






Well...... Well,who would have thought that the mighty Aussies will bite the dust in the Ashes series after 16 years. Gosh !!!!! what a series, a real cliffhanger, humdinger, as England celebrates its Vaughanted ashes its time to look at some of the best memories of this series.
Its been 16 years since England won the most coveted Ashes series,undoubtedly the most cherished,oldest and the fiercely competed cricketing battle on earth.Pietersen,Flintoff and Shane Warne are the three names which will linger in our minds for a long time to come.
Well more than just England the game of cricket needed this kind of gamesmanship and competitive game for the future of test match cricket.All 5 days were house full and what more even balconies and roof top views were available on premium.
Today when everyone seems to be going gaga over 20-20 matches and One day games ,this ashes series comes as a vintage relief to its die hard fans .

I guess test match cricket really tests the true mettle,strenghths and also shows the true character of the game.I guess its makes people understand that its not just a game of power and stamina but it needs good strategy and execution perfection to win test series.
