Fourth Investec Test, Emirates Durham ICG (day four):
England (238 & 330) beat Australia (270 & 224) by 74 runs
An inspired spell of fast bowling from Stuart Broad catapulted England to a 74-run win over Australia in the fourth Test and sealed victory in the Ashes series.
Chasing 299 for victory, Australia were well placed on 168-2 but lost their next eight wickets for 56 runs as they collapsed to 224 all out.
Tim Bresnan turned the tide when he had opener David Warner caught behind for 71 and Broad followed up with a devastating burst of 6-20 in 45 balls to finish with 11 wickets in the match.

Thanks for reminding me to scratch my nuts. :D

I wasn't expecting such a collapse. Australia had the game but then threw it away.

I am asuming they threw the game deliberately so that the game doesn't go into the 5th day because there just is no point. :roll:

This seems to be the only logical explanation!

English, Middle Class, Public School Girls (with silly Christian names) beat Australian (Convicts) wives and Girlfriends to win the Ladies' Ashes, last night.

The reason for why the Australians did so badly in this series is quite obvious.

The team were in a state of 'SHOCK' from day one on account of the weather, it has been such a long gloriously sunny spell (except for a couple of rainy days) the poor blokes just couldn't believe they were in England. :lol:

Right! Time to revive this thread! :D

The Ashes are back on and after a bad start, the Aussie Tail wagged to bring some respectability to their innings of 8-273 at stumps! :D

Today, it will be up to the Australian Pace Bowlers and Siddle is looking pretty damn good.
