Despite all the media build-up from the “Old Enemy”, it seems that those Poms have once again been rattled by the might of Australia and the ol' “baggy green” at the GABBA. Birthday boy Peter Siddle scored the ultimate birthday present with a six-wicket haul (including a hat-trick), while debutant Xavier Doherty tweaked his first two international Test wickets to send England back to the pavillion all-out for 260.
With the Aussies off to a great start, it's only natural that the good vibes from the First Test should reflect upon the virtual felt over at 888poker during the coming weeks, with the Poker Ashes back once again!
Five special $1,000 guaranteed Poker Ashes tournaments are being held over the duration of the series and you can get in amongst the action, provided of course you hail from either Australia or England – and you can front up the one cent buy-in. You read right – ONE CENT. Now that's better than a slap in the face with a wet fish (though to England's credit, that Monty Python skit never gets old).
