US woman with Twitter name 'theashes' packing for trip Down Under

By Manoj Kumar Ramesh

Melbourne, Dec 24 (ANI): An American woman, who was bombarded with cricket-related messages due to her Twitter name 'theashes', is packing her bags for an expected trip Down Under this Christmas.

"'The Ashes' was a nickname my boyfriend gave me. My name is Ashley and he called me 'Ashes' and that evolved into 'The Ashes'," News.com.au quoted Kerekes as saying.

"It's been a nickname I've had for years now and we didn't really know that it had anything to do with sport."

Kerekes, of Massachusetts, US, is now being flown to Australia for the fifth Ashes test by Qantas.

The aspiring elementary school teacher said she had been catching up on the game to prepare for the trip.

"I think I've watched it every day that it's been on since I found out. A lot of my family watches it now too," she said.

"I didn't know anything about cricket at all before this started. Nothing." (ANI)
