I would like you all to take a moment to remember the glory days of Australian cricket, from the first instance, when Allan Border and his men reclaimed the Ashes in 1989 with batting totals of no less than 424 runs per first innings. Since then, under the impressive leadership of Border, Taylor and Waugh, The Australians have dominated for a decade and a half of cricket.
But all good things must come to an end.
Last night, admid the fading British light, and set aganist several heartbreaking dropped catches and missed chances, Australia’s dominance in Ashes series cricket was finally set to rest. I suggest we all burn a bail for rememberance.
Oh, and make the poms pay like hell next season.
