For 16 years(from 1989), and 8 Ashes test series - Australia kept the urn safe in their pocket..
Come summer of 2005 - England dramatically won back the 5 test match series 2-1 at home only to lose it again in 2007.. this time the series result was 5-nil.
Aussie cricket team has weakened with several stars retiring whereas England have built up a stable side in the mean time. Moreover - 2009 Ashes series will be played in England so home fans can expect heroic performance from their cricketers.
Even the International fans are getting crazy for this upcoming battle between the old rivals of cricket.
