5th Investec Ashes Test: England v Australia Hosts England enter the Fifth and final Test at The Oval with an unassailable 3-0 lead in The Ashes after embarrassing the visitors, Australia, yet again at Chester-le-Street in the Fourth Test. England's win in Durham meant they secured The Ashes outright for the third successive time - with the next series just around the corner this winter Down Under. Four years ago, when England secured their first Ashes win in the current hot streak, the final test at the Oval was all the more decisive, with both teams entering the match level with one victory a piece. There were scenes of jubilation when a man-of-the-match performance by pace bowler Stuart Broad (not to mention a game-changing direct hit from Andy Flintoff to run out Ricky Ponting when the game was in the balance) helped England to a 197-run win over Australia to give England a 2-1 series win. With Broad in devastating form again in Durham, and Ian Bell looking to score an historic fourth series century, it's hard to look past England taking a fourth win over the August bank holiday - provided the rain stays away.

 

About The Kia Oval Cricket Ground

Though it does not have quite the same kudos as Lord's, The Kia Oval (known so because of a sponsorship deal, but usually referred to simply as The Oval) is in many ways just as pleasant to watch a day's cricket. Test matches against the West Indies and teams from the Indian subcontinent are particularly atmospheric, with south London's large Caribean and Asian populations turning out in force to support their heroes.
