The England A-Team of Andys Strauss, Flower, Alistair Cook and Jimmy Anderson have led england to a magnificent 3-1 ashes series victory. The first win in Oz in 24 years was secured by a third, record breaking, innings victory.

The A-Team have proved the spine of this England team throughout the seres down under, and will prove to be so for many years to come. The leadership and tactics of the Andys was astute, and inspired those around them. Anderson ended up the series leading wicket taker, securing the penultimate Australian wicket of Ben Hilfenhaus, while Alistair Cook ended up the leading run scorer with a magnificent horde of 766.

What do you call a great Australian cricketer? Retired.
