    Shadows of Cape Town

    First Test of the 2009 Ashes - having competed on occasion, but on balance been outplayed in the ODI series, we headed to Lord's. We ground out a score on both occasions, after the Australians rather gave their wickets away in the first dig, and after a quick lower order slog we had one over before tea on Day 4, as Australia attempted to chase 473 to win. Phil Jaques nicked the first ball through to Geraint Jones, and then this happened...

    Ha, nice. Anderson took a hat trick to finish it?
