ashes moment!

An amazing 5th day, 2nd Ashes Test Match – man I loved watching the match today and spending the time before TV! Benefits of being in India and taking a break 😉

Aussies thrashed the Brits in style! One of the best last day of a test match I have seen in my life … Cricinfo reports

England 551/6d & 129
Australia 513 & 168/4 (32.5 ov)
Australia won by 6 wickets

Australia RR 5.11
Last 10 ovs 47/0 RR 4.70

Full scorecard

32.5 Anderson to Hussey, 1 run, that’s it … Hussey drives through extra cover and punches the air and jumps around as well he might. Australia, seemingly down and out after two days, have recorded a remarkable win. Handshakes all round, and the grinning Australians emerge from the pavilion to meet the hangdog English side at the boundary edge …

It was a great day – to see 9 england wickets fall, 4 aussies wickets and Oz score 168 runs in 33 overs. In commanding style. Just clinching a win from what everybody (even the players) thought was going to be DRAW!! No wonder Aussies are the GODS of cricket now 🙂

No wonder CRICKET still hols public attention in all its forms i.e Test Matches (5 days), ODIs (1 day) and Twenty20 (4 hrs!)

Some images to close the post (source: Getty Images – atleast thats what all websites say!!)
