Paradise regained as England capture the Ashes once more
"At 12 minutes to six on a glorious sunshine-soft late summer evening, England regained the Ashes they had surrendered so abjectly in Australia three winters ago. It had been a hard slog.
"Set an unlikely if not impossible 546 to win, Australia had made such a thunderously aggressive start on Saturday evening that a smidgeon of doubt might have crept in. None should have been there. The total would have been hefty on a pristine pitch but on one about which Woody Guthrie might have written songs, it was, any cricketer worth his salt would have said, just not a function of "if" but "when". All out for 348, Australia had lost by a massive margin of 197 runs."
