    Thumbs up England regain Ashes at jubilant Oval..!!



    England regain Ashes at jubilant Oval..!!
























    England regained the Ashes with a sweeping 197-run victory over Australia in

    the fifth test at the Oval on Sunday despite a battling century from Michael Hussey that threatened to take the game into a fifth day.

    A capacity crowd basking happily on a sun-baked evening erupted in scenes

    reminiscent of the corresponding test four years ago when a draw was enough to bring the Ashes back after 16 years.

    Australia, who needed at least a draw to retain the Ashes they won back by

    crushing England 5-0 in 2006-7, were dismissed for 348 in their second innings after being set a record 546 for victory.

    The series had been tied 1-1 after Australia won the fourth test at Headingley within three days.

    Only Hussey defied the England attack for any length of time, scoring his 10

    th century. He was the last man out, caught at short-leg by Alastair Cook for 121 in five and half hours at the crease.




    First test, Cardiff - Jul 8-12: Draw

    Second test, Lord's - Jul 16-20 : England won by 115 runs

    Third test, Edgbaston - Jul 30-Aug 3 : Draw

    Fourth test, Leeds - Aug 7-9 : Australia won by an innings and 80 runs

    Fifth test, Oval : England won by 197 runs

    That is a fantastic win by England. Finally Australia step downs from world no.1 position in test ranking nearly after a decade. Congratulations to England team.
