Dust to Dust, Ashes to... England!

Well, England won the Ashes. What a match, what a series.

Unfortunately I had to go to work at lunch, and at 127-5 it didn't look too hopeful. The best I was hoping was that KP and a spirited tail would take us close to 200 and the Aussies wouldn't have time to catch up... Was great to get home and find out we'd won.

Freddie Flintoff thoroughly deserves his man of the series award, and KP man of the match too. He'd been one of the least impressive for me throughout, dropping six catches and failing to shine with the bat, until that amazing 158. All the team deserve credit, however, for what they've achieved.

Particularly gratifying given the Aussies' over confidence, and pre-series talk of a 5-0 win. Let's hope next time the Aussies come here - without Warne and McGrath - maybe we can beat them 5-0...
