    I'm thinking players like Botham, Gower and Gooch would have won in all of 1977, 1977/78, 1981, 1985 and 1986/87. (Turns out it was actually just Botham that played all of these)


    Edit: Having a look the 19th century players have this sewn up because of how many series they played back then. Billy Barnes played 21 Tests in his career and he won the ashes 7 times from 1882-90.

    Edit again: Barnes is tied with Bobby Peel, Arthur Shrewsbury and Walter Read for the record seven wins. All 1880s players

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Has anyone won man of the series without winning a single man of the match?

    When was the last drawn series, I'm sure I must be missing an obvious one, but I can't remember it, which is odd for my miserable time watching this glorious thing, which we all seem energised by.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Thanks, quite a few gone by then. Wonder how that compares with other series.

    Must be a while since 2 England players had a 10fer in the same series.

    Does that count as one of our greatest sides then?

    Got 6 pretty special players in our history and a great (having a shocker this summer) keeper.

    Obviously the current lot get to play a lot more, but the 2011 side must go down as the best since beefy's days surely?

    Not sure about the current lot though. Quite a few of the guys who were beasts a couple of years ago aren't quite doing it as well as they were.

    I still reckon the 10-11 win is better than this one regardless of what happens. There's probably a thread in that though.

    No argument. 2010/11 was an absolute pasting. This series has been won because we've been less **** than Australia.

    Absolutely and even if we win down under in the winter (which I fully expect) then that won't come close to 10/11 either. Best sleepless 6 weeks ever.
