It's all about batting...

A relaxed John Howard visits British Prime Minister Tony Blair in England. Both men had recently become Prime Ministers of their respective nations after prolonged periods with their parties in opposition. John Howard being elected in March 1996, and Tony Blair in May 1997.

The subject of this conversation was the 2nd Test Match of The 68th Ashes Series in England. Australia lost this match but went on to win the Ashes. The Series saw the rebirth of English Cricket and the 6th Test was won by England in one of the closest finishes in Ashes history .
