Ashes 2013-14 statistics tell tale of England's woes in Australia

Why Australians don't understand the Barmy Army

The Poms on The Hill at the old Sydney Cricket Ground were magnificent. Decked out in Union Jack-themed short-shorts, they held up flags and stood tall (albeit flinching occasionally) as thousands of tinnies rained down upon them like frothy mortars from the sky.

Only way is up and up for this Australia side after Ashes demolition

The last Ashes whitewash, in 2006-07, didn't exactly spark an era of Australia dominance – England went on to win the next three series, taking a grip on the urn that has only just been released by Michael Clarke and co. Is there any danger of history repeating? It's hard to compare teams across …
