Pinpointing the exact 'moment' for the purpose of this list from Australia's comprehensive thrashing of England during the Ashes cricket series of 1989 isn't difficult: it must be the nine wicket victory from the 4th test match at Old Trafford which signaled their regaining of the Ashes (for the first time on English soil since 1934). But that would do a disservice to the rest of their play over that summer. The away side set out their stall in the opening test by scoring more than 600 runs in the first inning and proceeded to batter England (with bat and ball) at every opportunity. The irony was that the Aussies had been comprehensively written off beforehand in the English press. It would take England's cricketers 16 years to wrest the Ashes back.
