The Ashes 2; Day Five

Six wickets to claim for a win
Beguiled by the master of spin
But we aren’t too fussy
About who get’s Hussey
Let’s hear it for young Steven Finn!

The ball was still shiny and new
And that’s always Anderson’s cue
Haddin touched one behind
Harris tried not to find
They can’t change the facts on review

Then Swann took his share of the strain
His tricks cause Australia pain
With five in the innings
He claimed England’s winnings
And then it was time for the rain!!!
