What a day at Old Trafford no sooner do Australia start showing their true potential and the whole things rained off. Australia deserved to win and with decent weather would have.

Autograph Signings have taken place throughout the series with particular emphasis on the memorable  Lords Test.

The last 5 days have been a lesson for players and fans alike not to become too complacent, things can so quickly go the other way, there is so certainly plenty to do at Chester-le- street starting Friday.

Australia having declared overnight on 172/7 and England needing 232 to win the home side fell to pieces, with the scoreboard showing 35/3 Australia, in my opinion would have had no problem bowling the hosts out with a hefty 72.3 overs remaining. Talk about saved by rain!!!!

Trent Bridge got England off to a cracking start which they followed up by hammering Australia at Lords opening the path to their fastest retention of Ashes since the 1928/29 series when they won the first three matches

England may have retained the Ashes at this dismal show but they now need to win the series, which after yesterday’s display won’t be the 4-0 they are hoping for, with Australia gathering momentum 2-2 is not beyond the bounds of possibility.

The selectors have been quick to act by including Durham fast bpwler Graham Onions and Chris Tremlett in the 13 man squad for the 4th Test.

"While the players should be congratulated on retaining the Ashes there is still a lot of cricket left in this series and it is important that the players recover and refocus ahead of another crucial week of Test cricket," said England national selector Geoff Miller

Sports autographs and Cricket Memorabilia will be available for the series later this month.

Let’s look forward to a spectacular match at Durham on Friday.
