CNN -- A day at the Test match is always a special occasion for cricket fans, and even more so when England are playing Australia and the Ashes are on the line.


The fifth and final Test took place at The Oval cricket ground, site of the first English defeat to the Antipodean's in 1882, with the series balanced on a knife edge at 1-1.

Could England recapture the urn for the first time since 2005? CNN went along to the third day of the clash between the two cricket arch-rivals to experience the unique atmosphere.
