Bowled Over

England win the Ashes, so what? They are always in the 'Final', they just haven't been good enough to win for the last eighteen years!

Will the English cricket team be made 'Sirs' to celebrate "the greatest sporting achievement since 1966". They are already going to meet lifelong rugby cricket fan Tony Blair.

"By bringing the Ashes back after so long you have given cricket a huge boost and lit up the whole summer." - Tony Blair

Given the recent performances of the 'other' England team, I think the country is entitled to celebrate any sort of victory!
Making them "sirs" is daft but I suppose compared to footballers, cricketers may make better role-models for the 'yoof' of today!

I agree with weenie, this was a proper victory against the best team in the World, these guys earn peanuts by comparison to our footballing " heroes " who constantly fail to deliver, also when they get hit on the head by a hundred mile an hour missile they do not lay down and cry.

But they beat the world's finest or there abouts. Pretty good work.
