Well, after courageous English resistance, Australia won by 185 runs, which is quite a big victory. As a result, they have retained The Ashes, although I don't put much stock in that. Previous series don't really matter and England can still square this series 2-2 if they win at The Oval in London in the final test.

Today, England were never really much chance to win but rather were fighting for a draw. Losing two wickets yesterday didn't help and in the end, despite a good rear-guard action, Australia's bowling was just too consistent and too good.

Highlights here...

I also understand that baseball is big in Australia as well.


It's quite popular. See my posts on page one.

Aussies have an interest in sport in general, especially if it's globally important. There have been a few Australians in MLB, a growing number in the NFL and obviously basketball. That always helps the interest but the NBA especially has been popular for decades.

I grew up in a town where basketball was extremely popular and when my younger brother and I visited relatives near Sydney wearing our representative tracksuits, I remember one of my Dad's brothers saying to him, "Basketball eh? That was always an American thing". Dad just wryly smiled. A different generation. Growing up, the status symbols were bikes, basketball boots and cricket bats.



I remember a certain Australian women's basketball team in the Olympics was very popular because they did not wear the same type of uniform that other teams did. A lot of men were interested . . .

I could not quickly find a picture of them wearing that uniform. I did see a picture of them wearing the normal type of uniform, however I did not save it. Pretty young ladies wearing their spandex uniform while playing with a ball . . .

Congratulations to Australia on their deserved retaining of The Ashes. England, quite frankly, got what they deserved.

Final Score England 2-2 Australia.

Well done England for fighting back and, although the Ashes could not be won, at least restoring some pride.

As said previously Australia overall deserved to keep the Urn and - perhaps even more importantly - the series has been another great advert for test cricket.
