UK chart: Ashes leaves others for dust

Codemasters upsets the batting order.  

Codemasters hits the boundary this week as Ashes Cricket 2009 enters the UK all-formats chart at number one.

Its arrival forces Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 down a place to two, three and four, respectively.

Fight Night Round 4 holds on at five, followed by Potter at six, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood at seven and Mario Kart Wii at eight.

G-Force leaps from 26 to nine thanks to its cinema sibling and The Sims 3 rounds out the chart at 10.
