Part 1 featured the second Test of the 2005 Ashes series in Edgbaston, which had controversially won by two runs. The subsequent three Tests – at Old Trafford (Manchester), Trent Bridge (Nottingham) and The Oval (London) – were equally enthralling.
As Australia gets ready to play the first Test at Cardiff on July 8, I remember some classic Ashes tussles in England in the last 40 years. Two thrillers will be revisited today and a few more in Part 2.
After demolishing the West Indies 2-0, Australia is all set to start their tour of England with confidence.
Australia are preparing to face the first Test against the West Indies at Roseau, Dominica, on Wednesday June 3, in a series the Aussies have dominated for the last 20 years.
New Zealand cricketers must be scratching their heads in frustration. How did it happen? How did they lose the Lord’s Test on Monday after scoring 523 runs in the first innings and then leading England by 134 runs?
