Ashes: An English dynasty emerges

After a glorious defeat at Trent Bridge, many had dared to hope of a close Ashes series. But a thrashing at Lord's, the once home-away-from-home for the Aussies, leaves a grim outlook.

Lord’s, London – For 75 years, Lord’s was almost a home ground for Australia. Until 2009, they had never lost there since 1934. Now England have won again at Lord’s, with just three balls left on the fourth day, and the margin of victory – 347 runs – was their greatest since 1938, when England’s margin at The Oval was an innings and 579 runs. Now England is two-nil up in this Ashes series and their chances of winning it look very good. If they do so, it will be their fourth win in the five most recent Ashes series.
