Ashes : Boxing Day Test Match Australia Vs England

My last major assignment for 2013 and my first ever Ashes test on the ropes.
While the match itself turned out to be an anti-climax and i spent all of day 3 ‘retired hurt’ with a very bad case of Gastro, it was great to be covering cricket again, its actually been the longest period (10 months) i have gone without covering cricket.
Here are some pics.
