Ashes cricket-related show

After the incredible day's play at Trent Bridge yesterday I sat down and tried to find some songs which could be to do with the various aspects of cricket - bowling, batting, catching, scoring runs - and more general sporting themes like winning and losing and I even found a couple of songs with Ashes in the title. Bats in the Attic could be about cricket bats!

Kirsty MacColl - A New England
KT Tunstall - Ashes
Neil Young - Field of Opportunity
Manic Street Preachers - Take the Skinheads Bowling
King Creosote & John Hopkins - Bats in the Attic
Stephen Stills - Know You've Got To Run
Skerryvore - We Can Run
The Midden - Holding On
Rowan Ross - Perfect Catch
Gren Bartley - Four in the Morning
Steeleye Span - Now We Are Six
Sarah MacDougall - Sometimes You Lose, Sometimes You Win
The Abramson Singers - Lose Lose
Lisa Richards - Painful Game
Ted Hawkins - Don't Lose Your Cool
Kim Edgar - Blood, Ice and Ashes
