Although both The recent Ashes and India in Sri Lanka Test series were roller-coaster cricket, there was a big difference.
What a paradoxical end to a roller coaster series! Did you notice the expressions on the faces of the rival teams at the award presentation on Sunday?
I did not have the pleasure of seeing Arthur Morris bat, but met him a few times at the Australian Cricket Society meetings in late 1990s.
Only four batsmen in the history of Test cricket have scored centuries in their first and last Tests.
On Thursday, August 20, Michael Clarke and Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara will farewell Test cricket; Clarke at The Oval, against England, and Sangakkara at Colombo, against India.
Congratulations to England for regaining the Ashes so convincingly after thrashing Australia in the first Test in Cardiff, in the third Test in Birmingham and yesterday in the Ashes-losing fourth Test in Nottingham.
