Michael Vaughan has all but retired due to a recurring knee problem.
Yet again Australia fails to fully utilize an all-rounder with White now in favour because there is no spinner who can carry an attack alone. Gilchrist and MacGill are distant chances to still be around and performing.

Australia 2 - England 1
Heading into the final test scores are level 1-1. England rush back captain Michael Vaughan in order to regain the Ashes. Vaughan fails with the bat and spends a lot of time off the field with an icepack. Strauss' captaincy and Tremlett's bowling result in one of the biggest chokes of all time. England lose the fifth test by an innings.
