Ashes Fantasy Review

August 27, 2009

One of the biggest heists in modern history happened last week. Millions of people worldwide saw it take place over a period of five weeks. England beat Australia 2-1 to regain the Ashes.

All the statistics, the predictions, the headlines, the compass, common sense, etc point in the direction opposite to the result in front of us. Lady Statistics seems to be talking to Australia on the telephone while silently texting a confirmation to England, telling them that she will actually be coming to their party.

The sums don’t add up to the totals, but then that’s the beauty of the game.

Imagine the team in the bottom half of the picture defeating the team in the upper half.

England's all-rounder strength(bottom) fooled the mighty Australians (top) who thought the numbers lay on their side in the Ashes

Andrew Strauss's very brief inspirational talk worked wonders.
