    Squiz's Ashes Series'

    In Australia: 2002 Ashes

    Australia have just completed a successful Pakistan tour winning the Test Series 2-1 and displaying the depth of Australian Cricket with three test debutants in Michael Clarke, Cameron White and Shane Watson but with also some sad retirements from the Waugh twins Steve and Mark Waugh.

    Now they have returned home to defend the Ashes from their rivals England.

    England are confident in retaining the Ashes "This is one of the best chances in years we've had to taking back the Ashses from the Aussies. Our outfit is as strong as ever, and with no Waugh twins I can't see them (Australia) winning" said Captain, Nasser Hussain.

    Australia too are confident of stretching their winning streak over England "We've held the Ashes for over 10 years now and nothing will change this series! We've just come off a series win in Pakistan and are full of confidence." proclaimed Ricky Ponting.

    Scorecards and Match Reports to come....

    1st Test

    1st Test: England - 1st Innings
    Winning the toss, Nasser Hussain decided to bat on this wonderful batting strip at The Gabba. But Hussain regretted the decision not long after, as Vaughan from only his 3rd ball was dismissed by a great outswinger from Glenn McGrath. Watson chimed in with his first test wicket in Australia removing the every so powerful Graeme Hick for only 19 and and England were looking very shakey. McGrath and Ramprakash fell in quick succession and not long after Thorpe followed suit. 5/95 at lunch. Hussain and Stewart were the last of the recognised batsmen and knew it was up to them if they were to post a decent total. Warne who had a great Pakistan series didn't look up to scratch with Stewart and Hussain smashing him all over the park. At tea on Day 1 England were at 6/223. These two had put on 213 runs before the spinning combination of Cameron White and Shane Warne removed them both within 5 overs. Both Warne and White cleaned up the tail leaving England on 340.

    1st Test

    1st Test: Australia - 1st Innings
    With Australia chasing 340 for a first innings lead, they started off slowly but steadily. Hayden reached 21 before he edged a ball to Hick in the slips. Langer and Ponting were on the verge of putting together a great partnership before Caddick struck and Langer was on his way to the pavilion with his stumps all messed. Ponting, Martyn and Clarke fell soon after and Australia were in big trouble at 4/92. Gilchrist was in outstanding form with the bat in Pakistan and nothing had changed. He and Watson had put on 32 before Watson had edged Hutchison to Trescothick. Cameron White entered and started to put a good partnership together with Gilchrist. Gilchrist fell to Hutchinson for 39 and Australia in even bigger trouble at 6/162. White was 3 short of his first test half century before Mullally claimed his scalp. The tail wagged as Warne, Gillespie and McGrath made 68 between them and took Australia to a modest total of 285, 55 short of England.

    1st Test

    1st Test: England - 2nd Innings
    McGrath combined with Gilchrist to remove Trescothick for only 6 when the score was at 33. But Vaughan and Hick showed some fight with Vaughan notching up his first 50 of the series. At 1/122 England seemed to be crusing but then Australia took control of the match. Losing 9/56 and what looked like the game England caved in. Vaughan, Hick and Thorpe; the only players who managed to get into double figures in this innings. Warne and White again ripped through the English lower order taking 7 wickets between them, while McGrath claimed the top 3 batsmen. Australia need 233 runs in their final innings to gain a 1-0 lead.

    1st Test

    1st Test: Australia - 2nd Innings
    An early scare for Australia in their chase losing Jusin Langer in the second over of the innings for only 6. But Hayden and Ponting put their heads down playing sensible cricket until Ponting was comprehensively bowled for 18 by Caddick. Hayden and Martyn then made reaching the target easier putting on 65 between them before Hutchinson struck again. Hutchinson took the next two wickets when the score was at 175, and put England back into the game. But the steady hand of Damien Martyn and flashy strokes from Shane Watson lead Australia home with 5 wickets to spare.

    2nd Test

    2nd Test: England - 1st Innings
    Going into the second match down 1-0, England knew a loss here would put them way behind the 8-ball. Vaughan didn't help the cause, he was on his way back to the pavilion in the 4th over not troubling the scorers. Hick and Treocthicking seemed to get their eye in before Watson knocked Trescothicks stumps out of the ground. Both openers out, the score at 2/65. Hick and Thorpe put together a very valuable partnership putting on over 100 between them before Thorpe edged a ball from Gillespie to Ponting in the slips. A constant flow of wickets and runs seemed course for the rest of the innings, three players making fiftie's and one hundred from Hick saw England post a total of 401.

    2nd Test

    2nd Test: Australia - 1st Innings
    Australia started off nicely. Hayden and Langer went away at their business like it was a Sunday stroll in the park, until Hayden was bowled by Hoggard for 40. Langer followed after a 50 runs stand with captain, Ricky Ponting. That started a mini-collapse as Ponting and Clarke gave away their wickets and Australia were looking in a spot of bother at 4/143. Martyn seemed settled till he couldn't handle the pace of quickman Darren Gough. Adam Gilchrist and Shane Watson put together a very healthy 100 run stand before Hoggard struck yet again, Watson gone for 48. The tail offered little or no resistance but Gilchrist's hogging of the strike proved good for Australia, making 128 and taking them to 380, 21 runs short of England's score.

    2nd Test

    2nd Test: England - 2nd Innings
    After scoring 401 in the first innings England were confident of another big score. But Vaughan continued his bad trot and England were 1/15 after 4 overs. Hick and Trescothick put a handy little partership together but as Trescothick was dismissed the wheels fell off. From 1/40 England lost 5 wickets to be 6/84. Stewart and Gough put on a 50 run stand but that was it for England, losing the last 4 wickets for a dismal 5 runs. McGrath picked up 5 wickets.

    2nd Test

    2nd Test: Australia - 2nd Innings
    If England were to have any chance of beating Australia it was to take 10 wickets as there was still 2 days to play and restricting Australia was not an option. They started well with Gough breaking through when the score was at 28 trapping Langer in front. Not long after Ponting edged Hutchison for 2 and Australia were in trouble at 2/33. Hayden and Martyn played some ravishing strokes in their 65 run stand, but that was broken by Matthew Hoggard. Gough took England's last wicket for the match with the scalp of Martyn for 46, but in the end Australia cruised to victory with Clarke and Gilchrist both making 25* and 26* respectively. Australia won by 6 wickets and now have a 2-0 lead in the series and look strong to defend the Ashes.

    3rd Test

    3rd Test: England - 1st Innings
    England won the toss, yet again and decided to bat. Australia started extremely well in this third test, dismissing both Vaughan and Hick without them troubling the scorers. But Trescothick and Thorpe showed some fight before Warne got his first an only victim of the innings in Thorpe for 25. Tresotchick went on to pass 50 for the first time in the series, but was bowled my McGrath soon after. Ramprakash and Hussain put on 78 and when Ramprakash was out that's when the trouble began. Losing Hussain next over, and Gough a few overs later, England had put themselves in a troubling situation. But Stewart batted well with the tail, making 41 and lifting England to 254.

    3rd Test

    3rd Test: Australia - 1st Innings
    Nearly every batsman in this Australian team are in form and they took advantage of that. Briging up the hundred with only the loss of 1 wicket, mean that a big total was on their hands. Langer made a 57 before he edged Gough to the keeper but Hayden and Ponting went out cheaply. Martyn who made a massive score of 138 batted well with Clarke who made a decent 42 and Gilchrist 67. Shane Watson and Cameron White then took control of the innings, adding 98 runs in their partnership before Watson skied a ball to Tresothick at mid wicket for 37. White went on to make his first test 50. Australia ended up on 478, 224 runs ahead of England.

    3rd Test

    3rd Test: England - 2nd Innings
    Early wickets for Australia meant that an innings win was on the cards. with the first 2 wickets of Trescothick and Vaughan when the score was at 20 had put England in yet another tough situation. Hick and Thorpe endured the new ball, and almost took the score to 100 before Thorpe was bowled by a spinning leg break from Shane Warne. Panic set in at the English camp, losing 4/43 and any chance of winning the series. White and McGrath cleaned up the tail as Australia romped to an innings and Ashes victory.
