Ashes, the mother of all cricket tournaments has started. The first test at Cardiff was a stunner. England just managed to salvage their reputation at their home. The team must be thanking their gods and Collingwood for the draw they secured in a nail biting match.
James Anderson and Monty Panesar performed the task which was supposed to be done by the likes of Peter ka Beta(fondly called by the ipl blogger), Strauss and others. The English team is lucky to go into the second match with the series still being 0-0.
Well, another test match which deserves a mention in this post is the one between Sri-Lanka and Pakistan. Pakistan lived upto its name of being 'Weapons Of Self Destruction'. The 'Collapso Kings' masterminded their fall after sitting pretty at 285/1. After lunch, they lost 9 wickets for a mere 35 runs. The Pakistani bowlers also failed miserably at the crucial juncture.
