Oz media takes leaf out of history to suggest England will lose current Ashes series

Sydney, Nov 25 : The Australian media has suggested that England's stranglehold on the Ashes urn will soon be broken because their team has not lost an Ashes series after winning at the Gabba since 1954.

According to The Daily Telegraph, that was in 1954-55, when many of the players' parents would not have been born.

In more than 80 years of Test cricket at the Gabba only twice has a team won an Ashes Test there and failed to press home the advantage, the report said.

The report added that this is the Australian side that lost 9-117 at Trent Bridge, was bowled out for 128 at Lord's and collapsed during a run chase at Durham to lose 9-77 but now it is in an overwhelming position, making England look second rate.
