    You were only kicking our a*** up until Steve Smith decided he was going to stay in for the next 5 hours. Took our score from 122 to almost 300. That was the beginning of the end for your blokes. Then Lyon and Cummins produced the coup de grace on the last day. where you capitulated for ..oh yes 146. Only 250 short of a win.

    You jest of course. Oh I forgot you lot give away an MBE if you win an Ashes. Stokes lucky as.. any one of his mistimed slogs could have been snaffled. Then it was Ashes to us.

    Anyone know why the game ended up being called 'cricket'?? Just an ODD name for a sports game.

    Oh No. We Aussies regard it as the ultimate sweet victory defeating the people that invented the game. Actually that is not entirely true. I read somewhere the French played a similar game even before the English.
