England break 24-year duck with Ashes triumph

December 29, 2010


11.53am local time on December 29, 2010 at Melbourne Cricket Ground.  It’s the moment England cricket fans have waited nearly a quarter of a century for.  The Ashes are won/retained in Australia.

Minus the Perth aberration, even the hardest Australian heart would have to concede it was deserved. Surely?

Mick Tsikas caught the celebrations.
