Editor's Viewpoint: Wizards in Oz

The England cricket team may not have a huge fan base in Northern Ireland, but few sports lovers can fail to be impressed by the manner of their Ashes victory over Australia. England just didn't win the series, they demolished the opposition. It was like watching Usain Bolt running at a school sports day such was the gulf in class. But it was a victory born of incredible team spirit - even the sole loss in the series did not send the side into a tailspin as happened in previous years. To win in Australia in any manner takes some doing, but to win in this style deserves the highest accolade
