The England & Wales Cricket Board has created an official film to mark the eagerly anticipated Investec Ashes Series, as part of their #RISE for England campaign.
TOGETHER WE’LL #RISE, FOR THE URN. THE ASHES
ECB reveal poem and official film to mark the Investec Ashes Series
History will soon be made,
Upon the board,
Their honours engraved.
Nerves on edge, muscles tighten.
Jaws are set, knuckles whiten.
A dot ball passes, atmosphere heightens.
Those left standing: gods among titans.
They’ll deliver the fight, session by session.
The nation’s pride their only obsession
For one. For all.
Old scores. New clashes.
Together we’ll Rise
For The Urn.
Anon., England fan.
