Howzat! Yes ladies and gentlemen the international cricketing season is once upon dear old England limo hire once again. But this time it is in the form of no such friendly test match series. On the contrary, this particular cricket tournament has been hotly contested over since 1882 and has forged one of the fiercest rivalries in the cricketing world between England and Australia. We are, of course, talking about the Ashes limo hire series which this year, 2009, comes to our very humble shores where we can hopefully teach those Ozzie lads a lesson by hitting them for six and claiming back the miniature urn that should be rightfully ours, at least in our minds anyway.
The tradition and mystery of limo hire The Ashes, and just what the rivalry is all about refers to match at The Oval in 1882 where Australia beat England in Cricket for the first time ever. The Sporting Times then ran a mock obituary in its paper heralding the loss as the ‘death’ of English cricket and that the ‘body’ of it had been burnt and its ashes transported back to Australia. Because of this, the next tour of Australia in the following year was dubbed “The question to regain The Ashes”. The Ashes limo hire in the small terracotta urn itself are widely believed to be that of a piece of cricketing equipment, most probably a stump, which was presented to the England captain in that 1883 tour by a group of Australian ladies. The trophies that are held aloft by the winners of this prestigious sporting series are replicas of this hallowed piece of cricketing history.
