Now - some two and a half months and 25 days of cricket (five 5-day matches) later a winner has emerged. I know you're all sitting on the edge of your seats for this...........VICTORY!!!! We beat the bloody Wallabies in the final test at the Oval to take back the urn 2-1.
The final game was effectively over midway through the afternoon of the second day when Chris Broad tore through the Australian batting reducing their first innings total to 160. From then on it was largely a formality - bat sensibly to create an unassailable lead then take the 10 2nd innings wickets to wrap up the series.
All in all an enjoyable and successful summer for the home team and a fitting way for Freddy to hang up his test boots.
