Cricket’s oldest rivalry Australia and England has been renewed in the latest Ashes battle. The heated battle between the two teams acquires an altogether different character than a mere contest since it has years and years of history attached to it.
The Ashes, widely followed by fans from all over the world, is also avidly watched by Hollywood superstar Russell Crowe. The Academy Award winning actor recently tweeted his love for the pinnacle of Test cricket which is the Ashes.
Crowe’s tweet bemused his American fans but he captured all the emotions and intensity of the cricket action that accompanies the much adored five-match series between Australia and England. Amidst the fears of the declining popularity of Tests, Crowe’s tweet reinforces the fondness for Ashes among cricket lovers.
