England win the Ashes

England regained the Ashes from Australia at the Oval today in yet another test match of changing fortunes. I love cricket and when at times today it looked like the Aussies were becoming dominant and there was a rising chance that England would lose, I must confess I started to feel a little unwell. England have waited so long to regain the ashes that to fall at the final hurdle would have been tragic.

In the end England won mainly thanks to the valiant batting of Kevin Pietersen, and tonight I go to sleep a happy man. The Ashes are back home after a temporary break of 16 years and 29 days.
