Matthew Hoggard Delighted to See England Triumph Again in the Ashes

Matthew was thrilled to see England win convincingly in the second Ashes test at Lord's. The team put in a fantastic performance to triumph over Australia by 347 runs and move one step closer to regaining the famous urn.

England overwhelmed their opponents with a solid batting display, the highlight of which was Joe Root's second innings 180, and incredible bowling which saw them dismiss Australia for just 128 in the first innings.

In 2005, England lost their first test at Lord's and signs looked ominous for another Australian Ashes victory. However, Matthew and the rest of the team rallied round and went on to win the thrilling series 2-1.

Matthew attended Lord's to support the team and is hoping that England's success continues into the third test at Old Trafford which will take place 1-5 August 2013.
