Sydney Morning Herald - Ashes Worst XI - An Affordable Gift or Investment
It is supplied in a tasteful silver frame with double mounts that compliment the presentation. It measures in at a large 70cm by 45cm that would make a great gift and grace any location in the home or office.
This quirky special edition presentation displays a digital copy of the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald that printed a public attack on the Australian Cricket Team the morning after their first Ashes series defeat to the English in Australia for 24 years. It is dated the 7 January 2011 and was printed to look like the paper was burning. The specific text is as follows:-“After 135 years, 730 matches and 417 players, Australia have finally fielded OUR WORST XI. Today England should become the first team in history to inflict 3 innings defeats on Australia in a single series. Commence the post Mortem”. In contrast, we have placed the famous photo of the team celebrating at the Sydney Cricket Ground after their historic win to the right with the following text. “OUR BEST XI - The Sydney Cricket Ground stood as a monument to English excellence as this humbled, chastened and - yes - humiliated nation came to terms with the reality that their era of greatness has finally come to a crushing end while another takes hold. Let the era of English dominance begin”
