Can england regain ashes??

This year’s most awaited series is ready to kick off in style on this Wednesday. But the question is, can England regain ashes as they did back in 2005?? 


I still remember the first ball faced by the Ricky pointing in 2005 ashes which got stuck on the face of the ponting and got some stitches too in the harmison's bowling. I hope he practiced the pull shot now :P:D


England and Australia both are fighting for the trophy from way back 1886/87. That’s really long. Both teams used to give everything to get the hands on the trophy. But the story became different from 1989. Australia dominated the ashes series till 2005. England finally able to regain the ashes under the captaincy of Michael Vaughan. Team performed really well especially Kevin Petersen.

After this defeat, many Australian players’ retirements were postponed as they are waiting for the time to take the revenge. Finally the time has came in 2007. They washed out the visitors 5-0 (which happened 1st time after 1929) to clinch the series. Many senior players announced their retirement (Warne, McGrath, Langer, etc).

Now, the stage is all set for 2009 with the most in-experienced team ever travelled to England to play the ashes And even brett lee is also injured now. It is the right time for the English means too to bring the trophy home. Can they able to do?? Let’s begin the countdown & see...
