Trent Bridge, Nottingham — Not long after tea at Trent Bridge the press was informed that the latest odds from the bookmakers had both teams even, at 10/11 on. They could not guess who would win the first Ashes Test. Australia had reached 155, half way to their target.
England had taken three wickets. The odds looked right.
They were soon proved all wrong. Australia’s middle order imploded, principally because of the application of the Decision Review System.
