Oz men ready to abstain from sex for Ashes

Melbourne, Dec 10: Australian men are prepared to
abstain from sex for a month to see their national cricket
team winning back the coveted Ashes urn.

According to a survey conducted by men's magazine 'Zoo
Weekly', 41 per cent of the 20,000 respondents would abstain
from sex if it meant Australia would regain the Ashes from
England, 'The Age' reported today.

But the Aussie men are unlikely to be extensively tested
because Australia are already 2-0 up in the five Test series.
The third Test starts at the WACA ground in Perth on Thursday.

The survey also found 62 per cent of those surveyed
believed Shane Warne, the world record Test wicket taker with
694 victims from 142 matches, should be knighted.

The leg spin guru set up Australia's amazing six wicket
victory in last week's second Test in Adelaide with 4-49 when
England choked for 129 in its second innings.

Forty two per cent of respondents believed England's
captain Andrew Flintoff was his country's most overrated

The allrounder was followed by paceman Steve Harmison on
25 per cent, opener Andrew Strauss (16 per cent) and middle
order batsman Kevin Pietersen (15 per cent).

Pietersen, who is developing a bitter rivalry with former
Hampshire teammate Shane Warne, is the most despised English
cricketer among Australian fans.

South African-born Pietersen received 42 per cent of the
votes followed by Flintoff on 23 per cent and Strauss 16 per
