The Ashes 2009

What Happened at Cardiff? The Ashes, first test, July 2009
15 July 2009
It isn’t over till it’s over!

Just when everyone was expecting England to wilt on the last day of the First Test, and Australia push for a convincing victory, having outplayed England for most of the first four days, the momentum in favour of Australia began to meet with some resistance.

With their backs to the wall, and facing the prospect of an innings defeat, the English team rallied with some fighting words. It’s hardly surprising to see resistance in the dying stages of any sporting contest. It was very interesting to see the parallels being played out symbolically in the movement of the planets at the same time.
