Original Poster

No, originated in England;
The series is named after a satirical obituary published in a British newspaper, The Sporting Times, in 1882 after a match at The Oval in which Australia beat England on an English ground for the first time. The obituary stated that English cricket had died, and the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia. The English media dubbed the next English tour to Australia (1882–83) as the quest to regain The Ashes.

Thank the lord its over! i like 20/20 but this just goes on and on and on!

aint there only two teams in the ashes, not really a big thing, is it now.

Most boring game invented..Watching paint dry is more exciting

The 'real' ashes are actually in the Lords Museum. Austrailia have only taken them back once, I believe in 1988 when they had there bicentinery.

So they are ours and they will stay here!

I've just said. What is the point. They play for a month for a trophy that you can hold in 2 fingers. if you can hold a trophy with 2 fingers its not a trophy worth playing for. They played for a month for burnt wood. :roll:

We can't all like the same sports you know:? For me football is a complete and total waste of time but I understand why the general population love it. For me MOTO GP is my sport with Cricket a close second:)
