Ashes 2009 flashback
England wrested the Ashes back from Australia's grasp with a second successive triumph on their own turf.
Andrew Strauss, who experienced the contrasting joy of 2005 and pain of 2006-07 as a player, wrote his name into Ashes folklore by leading England to a 2-1 triumph.
Monty Panesar and James Anderson were unlikely heroes with the bat in the opening Test - the first to be staged in Cardiff - and Andrew Flintoff cemented his iconic status with a match-winning display at Lord's in his final series for England.
A stalemate at Edgbaston was pedestrian by comparison, and Australia's rampant display at Headingley left England needing victory at the Oval to win the Ashes.
Jonathan Trott's century on debut and Stuart Broad's career-defining five-wicket haul ensured they did.
