Who said test match cricket isn't exciting? With Australia playing for the draw, England needed one wicket to win the Third Test of the 2005 Ashes series. After a brilliant 156 from man-of-the-match Ricky Ponting, Lee and McGrath kept Australia's final wicket intact, giving them both the result they wanted and the psychological edge going into the next match.

The crowd was seething, screaming, cheering like mad Englishmen in the sun for the entire day's play. Now they're walking out of Old Trafford not just disconsolate, but dead silent. They shouldn't lose confidence in their players. England deserved to win but, as when going loopy over Tim Henman's chances, their fans should be wise enough by now to never celebrate too early. Disappointment hurts. At least Australia spared their hearts by not pulling it out and winning it at the end, still a possibility when 80+ runs were needed off 76 balls and Warne was at the crease.

The Ashes remains tied at 1-1.

Read the real news here.
