Nope, Cesc. You couldn't be more wrong. The Ashes go way beyond any normal Series victory conditions - it's a symbol of rivalry between two nations that's impossible to put into words. And this is the first time in 24 years they've been able to retain them in Australia. That's why they are celebrating, and I hope they partied well into the night. It's unique in test cricket, in that it's the only series that exists where a draw away from home to retain a 'symbol' such as the urn counts as much as a normal series win against anyone else. I still hope they win the Sydney match, for the sake of the rankings, but it's pretty insignificant compared to the moment where England ensured they'd be travelling back home with the Ashes. Regardless of what the result is next week, even if it's win it will still be the victory in Melbourne that they will all remember as the key moment - by a country mile. Not the series victory.
