Yes I agree Betreger

However us ozzies will take the credit for the newer form of cricket known as the one day game or limited overs game thanks to Kerry Packer he showed the selectors over in England what real power and lot's of cash can do.

Sirius I believe they came begging on there hands and knees to be involved in the ODI's and Kerry Packer got everything he wanted including exclusive rights for ten years to televise it .......yes I am being naughty heheheh

A bit early I know to start sledging .....heheheh

Simplified Rules of Cricket

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out, and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out.

When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.

There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out.

When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

Even less likely to even find a team judging by this.

Admit it, your chances of borrowing our Urn is virtually nil.

That's a shame as he's a pretty good cricketer. IMV, once a game/test/match commences, all players should be banned from using social media, less problems for the teams that way.

@John

Come the World Cup, you'll be lucky to maintain fourth place!

Excuse me for butting in!!! What's all this crap about the Ashes urn?.

The Ashes urn is a small terra cotta artifact standing only 11 cm high. It was presented to Ivo Bligh, the captain of the English Cricket Team, during the 1882-83 tour in Australia as a personal gift by a group of Melbourne women. The contents of the urn are reputed to be the ashes of an item of cricket equipment, a bail.

The urn is erroneously believed by some to be the trophy of the Ashes series, but it has never been formally adopted as such and Bligh always considered it to be a personal gift. After Bligh’s death, his widow Florence presented the Urn to the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in 1929. It was placed in the Long room at the Lord’s Pavilion until 1953 when it was transferred to the Cricket Museum next to the Pavilion.

Australia might win the cricket matches to win the Ashes tournament, but they don't get the real thing.

Since 1929 the Urn has returned to Australia only twice. Once when it was brought to Sydney for the Bicentenary Test Match in 1988 and secondly in 2006 for the tour of the Ashes Exhibition to each state capital of Australia.

But the winners do get something.

Since the 1998–99 Ashes series, a Waterford Crystal representation of the Ashes urn has been presented to the winners of an Ashes series as the official trophy of that series.

Pretty obvious you're not a follower of Cricket! Those of us that do are aware of the Ashes Urn.



2013

1st Test 10th - 14th July Trent Bridge
2nd Test 18th - 22nd July Lord's
3rd Test 1st - 5th August Old Trafford
4th Test 9th - 13th August Chester-Le-Street
5th Test 21st - 25th August The Oval

& a One Day International that poses a quandary! Who do I support?

3rd September Ireland v England Dublin

As for the Urn, the replica as well as the original of course will be remaining in the UK :)
