Its the best isn't it? The Ashes i mean, and i don't say that just because England won the last test. Its not between the best two teams in the world (one could argue now neither are in the top 2) but has so much history, passion, drama. Things that shiny new sports events lack. Events like T20 can be exciting but they are soulless to be honest. One day maybe they may be able to attain a history but they will always be lagging behind the Ashes. Freddie was immense of course but don't forget Swann took the more vital wickets in that second innings it could be argued.
Onto Edgbaston next week!
