On 25th of July i had put up this Post. Little did anybody had in the wildest of dreams that exactly 7 weeks later, the English will have the Ashes.

I had earlier said "all of us were expecting a nail-biting Ashes. After all, monopolies have been destroyed this year from Schumi to Arsenal/ManU, with the exception of Federer. We thot it is Australia’s turn. That too after their initial losses in the series, infact once to Bangladesh, it appeared obvious that the time has come for the wheel to rotate."
And Yes, indeed the wheels have turned and today both the things i said have gone correct, one being the raise of new kings, and the other is the exception of Federer from this trend. :)

McGrath said before the tour that, he expects a 3-0 or 4-0 and not a white wash, coz he expected rains to play havoc in one or two matches. And the rains did spoil two of them. But on the contrary, the rain seemed to have saved the Oz from a 4-1 loss.

Flintoff and Pieterson have done brilliantly in the series. Sure chaps for the future. I would definitely consider the Poms a lot before putting my money for the 2007 world cup champs.

While i am writing this, the match is not yet over, and we have abt 20 overs left in the day. Let me pack my day now and slip in to the sports pub and party. Tomorrow, there is a huge celebration planned in trafalgar square. FYI, the square was booked last week itself, anticipting the victory.

Uff.. atlast cricket has also got its monotony broken. No, neither i am a terrific English Cricket fan, nor an Aussie cricket trasher, just a fan of Cricket. And this test series result is definite incentive towards healthy competition.

If this new era continues, it would be a good entertainment for cricket lovers...

if only the big boys win always, it is getting bored at times.

Avanga lollu lolllolollu, nethikki world cup jeicha maadhiri aadiputtanga!

Yes, it felt nice to be here, when 2012 olympics bid was won and the Ashes victory, never mind the 7/7 ;)

Very True, When all teams are strong, then the game is interesting. FYI, i was a great fan of Oz till 2-3 yrs back and got sick of them winning, and wanted a change.

Flintoff is a good all rounder.. And though i dont expect a change of leadership in Oz, definitely a huge change in the team is on the cards.

Truly a great series, but i wont put it the Best. For me it is the Oz in India in 2001 is the Best Ever.
