    England won about 12 of theirs pre-1900 ffs. They've been consistently rodgered since WW1.

    Siddle is the last Aussie bowler to take a wkt in England (Ali in 2015) and is currently the highest Ashes wkt taker in the squad with 73 (Lyon 65, Starc 51, Hazlewood 37)

    Edit: Siddle also needs 7 wkts to get to 50 wkts in England, the 10th highest ever = with Merv Hughes and Bill O'reilly


    This should make Nufan happy

    Ian Bell has done it. Only Botham and Wilfred Rhodes had done it before him.

    lol, if you're bringing up Rhodes (played 1899-1926) might as well bring out WG Grace with 6 wins (btw Rhodes was also involved in 6 Ashes defeats).

    Looking this up, I found Steve Waugh was involved in 8 series wins, Shane Warne 7 and Mark Waugh, Mark Taylor, Ian Healy and Glenn McGrath 6. In the current squad, this will be Smith, Warner and Lyons 3rd series win

    Probably only 5 or 6. Pretty much started at the same time as McGrath. Played on longer but after 06/07 we lost 09, lost 10/11 and lost 2013, which was after he retired anyway.

    Yeah, 5 which is fitting since Victor Trumper and Don Bradman also have 5

    Completely forgot he played in 2015. Fair play.

    Peter Siddle is just 4 Tests/27 wickets away from 100 Ashes wickets.

    Smith is currently tied on 8 ashes tons with Morris, Sutcliffe, Ponting and Border

    On 9 we have Greg Chappell, Hammond and Gower

    On 10 there's Steve Waugh

    On 12 we have Jack Hobbs


    And lastly we've got Bradman with 19


    There's every chance Smith can move into equal third with Waugh this series. Very good chance he ends up with the second most ever considering he's only just turned 30
