The term, Ashes pertains to the mythical prize contended for in the Cricket Test matches between England and Australia. When England was beaten at the Oval in 1882 a mock obituary of English cricket appeared in the Sporting Times. The ashes of a burnt cricket stump were subsequently placed in an urn and given to the English team when it next won.
