The funniest moments of the Ashes

With just a few weeks to go until the annual England versus Australia Ashes tournament, both teams will be doing everything in their power to avoid looking like plonkers over here in Blighty.

Certainly, the Australian team are not off to the best start, particularly as they’re currently trying to shake their ‘Dad’s Army’ reputation. After hearing the scathing comments from former player Jason Gillespie, Captain Michael Clarke said: “Jason's entitled to his opinion.

“There's a long list of people who've criticised this team. We might just add 'Dizzy' to that list of people we continue to prove wrong.”

But if history is anything to go by, could Australia’s critics be right? It’s not just Australia who’ve made a few boo-boos in the past. Here’s a look back at some of the best blunders and funny moments of years gone by.

Ponting hit in the face

You’ve got to feel sorry for Ricky Ponting. While Coral may have named Australia as favourites to win this year’s competition, the Aussie batsman has had his fair share of bad luck when it comes to balls hitting him in the face – and the Ashes 2009 proved no exception. This was the second incident of a ball round the chops, so let’s hope he was a little more prepared this time round.

Cheer up, Ponty!

You’d be pretty miserable too if all you got was balls to the face, so it’s no wonder fans were telling their beloved Ricky Ponting to cheer up back in the 2010/11 Ashes. Singing to the tune of The Monkees’ Daydream Believer, Ponty was told by fans to cheer up, despite being on a “sh*t cricket team.” Always look on the bright side eh, Ponty?

James Anderson takes no bull

There’s nothing like a good bit of sportsmanship and friendly banter between the English and the Australians, and in the 2010/11 season, it was up to Aussie man Mitchell Johnson to deliver the banter. To taunt England’s Anderson, he said: “Why are you not chirping now mate, not getting wickets?” Rather than respond with a witty quip, Anderson proceeded to bowl out the next player, leaving Johnson well and truly speechless.

The Sprinkler Dance

2010 really was the year for funny moments, and nothing said it better than when England celebrated their victory. Rather than reaching for the champagne after beating the Aussies, the team erupted into a dance troupe of flash mob proportions, which soon became an internet sensation known as ‘The Sprinkler Dance’ ever since.
