Ashes to Ashes

Ashes to Ashes

by

In this five-part series from The Telegraph, some of the biggest names in Ashes history recall memorable Tests in which they played. In the fifth episode of Ashes to Ashes, former England wicket-keeper Geraint Jones and ‘Mr Cricket’, Australia’s Michael Hussey, look back at the incredible second Test in Adelaide from the 2006-07 series and the unlikeliest of wins. England recovered strongly from defeat in the opening Test, declaring on 551/6. But, Australia replied with 513 and England collapsed in the second innings – losing their last nine wickets for 60 runs, allowing the hosts to knock off 168 runs in quick time to take a 2-0 lead. Hussey recalls the team talk from captain Ricky Ponting that injected Australia with belief they could win, while Jones dissects where it all went wrong on the final day in a Test that paved the way for an Australia whitewash. Narrated by Chief Sports Writer Paul Hayward, and introduced by Cricket Correspondent Scyld Berry with commentary provided by Sky Sports.
