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.
The film will be played on the big screen at all five venues hosting an Investec Ashes Test, and a poem which features in the film will also feature on the front cover of the Trent Bridge match programme.
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.
The bat. The ball.
Old scores. New clashes.
Together we’ll Rise
For The Urn.
