The official broadcasters of the 2015 Ashes, Sky Sports have come up with an amazing promo for the upcoming 5 match Test series between England and Australia to get the bragging rights for the Ashes urn. Sky Sports cricket pundits have teamed up with rock star Elio Pace and his band for a rendition of the Billy Joel classic ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’ – with an Ashes twist. Here is the Promo

The lyrics have been reworked to include references to memorable moments from Ashes past, such as Shane Warne’s ‘Ball of the Century’ to Mike Gatting, and Gary Pratt’s run-out of Ricky Ponting. Here is the lyrics courtesy SkySports.com

Donald Bradman, Peter May, At The Oval, Final Day,
Little Urn, Bob’s perm, Double U G Grace

Walter Hammond, Mitchell Johnson, At The Gabba, Big Decision
Chris Broad, Pons-ford, Riiiiiiiiiichie Benaud

Larwood’s Bodyline, Athers slips on 99
Laker, Jones’ dive, Gower flying in the sky

Baggy Greens, swing/seam, Warnie’s ball in ’93
Ricky Ponting, Pratty gets him, Freddie makes the bails fly!

We didn’t start the fire…

10, 11 whitewash, Nasser… and that toss
Tubby Taylor, Sher-minator, Brigadier-bloc

Swansongs, follow-ons, Headingley ’81
Mark Waugh, Steve Waugh, Harmy’s shocking first ball

Brett Lee, on his knees, Aussies got a winning team
Davy Warner, third man, Andy Flower’s En-ger-land

Jon Snow, final Test, Manchester, yes, Chef!
Thommo, Lillee, fierce pace, Bumble smacked in that place…

We didn’t start the fire…
