    England have snatched back the Ashes by sealing a comprehensive 197-run triumph late on day four of the fifth and final Test at The Oval on Sunday.
    
    
    The victory handed Andrew Strauss's men a 2-1 series triumph for England's second Ashes series win since 1986-87 in front of a delirious home crowd at south London.
    
    Surprised hasn't made front page news here.

    Good to see the Poms finally win.

    You don't follow Cricket enough, We won the Ashes back in 2005 to, then lost them and now got the, back.

    Our cricket team is good, I'm not speechless by it :P

    We also do well in the Olympics and other sports, think your more alone in thinking people are speechless we won something. We win a lot. ;)

    Dont think its front page news worthy on a Technology site, plus the majority of our members come from countrys which dont play test cricket so wouldnt even know what the Ashes are ;)
