Bye, Bye, Ashes good Bye!

Is that the song that Barmy Army will be sing on Day 4 of the Third Test after Hussey and Clarke batted the Poms out of the game and Gilly decided to take the salt, and well and truly rub it into the exposed wound. Not sure if England have the parade planned to celebrate  losing the Ashes (come on, they held them for just over a year, that’s fairly good for them). I am also not sure if the Aussies have their flights booked to collect their OBE’s (or what ever an Australian would receive from the Queen) from OUR QUEEN, the Queen of England.

So what happened:

THE most tormented 15 months in modern Australian cricket were almost certainly belted into history at the WACA Ground yesterday by Michael Hussey, Michael Clarke and the extraordinary Adam Gilchrist.

Australia are on the verge of reclaiming the Ashes in emphatic style after Adam Gilchrist, who carved the second-fastest Test century, led the demolition of England’s bowlers on the third day at Perth. His 57-ball assault built on more measured tons from Michael Hussey and Michael Clarke, leaving England with the almost impossible task of scoring 557 or batting two days to keep the series alive.
