David Cameron's Ashes Tweet Mocks Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd

David Cameron Ashes

David Cameron has turned his hand to cricketing sledging, mocking the Australian Prime Minster after England's opening Ashes victory.

The Prime Minister tweeted that it had been "a brilliant match and a brilliant win" after England secured a nail-biting win on Sunday.

Clearly relieved the 'curse of Cameron' has been lifted by Andy Murray's Ashes victory, Cameron poked fun at Kevin Rudd, Australia's new Prime Minister.

Labour PM Rudd ousted former premier Julia Gillard in a dramatic vote last month.

England won the first test by 14 runs after a video appeal, as Australia's tail end closed in on what would have been a dramatic victory.
