Now I don't want to sound like a spoilsport, but England haven't actually secured an Ashes victory yet have they, so why the silly dancing? I know of no other nation that would so enthusiastically celebrate not losing.

They have merely retained the Ashes. The fact remains that if everything cricketologists have been saying about both sides is true, then an Australian win in the final test of this series will make those premature celebrations all seem rather embarrassing. An awesome series will quickly turn into a disaster.

This England team is apparently one of the best England teams for years and years and years, while the Australian team is bloody useless and one of their worst for decades. Yet if the Aussies win the final test then we have a drawn series. Which makes those sprinkler dance celebrations look a bit stoopid.
