the Ashes


the Ashes
«Урна с прахом». Кубок, присуждаемый на ежегодных матчах по крикету между командами Великобритании и Австралии. Когда в 1882 г. английская команда проиграла в «Овале» (название лондонского стадиона, где постоянно проводятся матчи по крикету), в газете «Таймс» появился шутливый некролог, посвящённый кончине английского крикета:

In affectionate remembrance of English cricket Which died at the Oval on 29 August 1882. Deeply lamented by a large circle of sorrowing friends and acquaintances. R.I.P. NB. The body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia. — Посвящается нежной памяти английского крикета, который скончался в «Овале» 29 августа 1882 г. Горько оплакивается широким кругом глубоко сожалеющих друзей и знакомых. Мир его праху. Важно. Тело будет кремировано, а прах перевезён в Австралию.

Победителям-австралийцам в 1882 г. в качестве символического приза была предподнесена урна с прахом английского крикета; в урну был насыпан пепел от сожжённого столбика крикетной калитки.
