Now, despite living in Australia (and sitting my citizenship next year), I am actually a UK citizen (in fact, I'm also a South African citizen but thats another story), and married into a family from a little town called Chorley in Lancashire (zero10 may know it as its close to Standish).
So, it is with some great pride that I would like to say how bloody pleased I am that England has once more retained the Ashes. Australia has been a dominant force in World cricket for the better part of a decade, but the time has come to hand over the reigns once more to the mother country. I wonder whether Australia will come back in force for the final test at the SCG?
