Man of the Match has to be Pietersen.

The man of the series - of course - Fred Flintoff.

Some Amazing bowling [by Warne].

True, but I doubt the man of the series - in which England regained the ashes - would be an Australian.

Some amazing bowling - and he carried the Aussies most of the time - but Flintoff's combination of bowling and batting was not matched by even Warne.

Be gracious in victory - nothing worse than rubbing it in.. just leaves a sour taste in the mouth!

O.K. we won the ashes, we won the ashes, Australia lost, we are the new world champs!

Is that gracious enough for you?

England have won the series fair & square; dominating four test matches out of five. By all accounts, they can rub it in. ;) Thing is Australia has been a sore loser (blaming everything) which isnt justified at all cause they have earned their defeats too, fair & square.

Nice picture Sane :)

The England team are gathered on the pavilion steps and they are

? ? ? ? now led out by Michael Vaughan ... the crowd roars!

? ? ?  There's plenty of waving and gesturing to the crowds. There are

? ? ? ? songs in the air and thunderous applause. Soon the presentation

? ? ? ? ceremony will begin.

? ? ?  The Man of the Match is Kevin Pietersen for his magnificent 158 in

? ? ? ? the second innings that seasled the match for England

? ? ?  'It's a fantastic day. It's special to me personally to win the Man

? ? ? ? of the Match on the last day of a series where we won the Ashes,'

? ? ? ? says Pietersen.

? ? ?  The Man of the Series is Andrew Flintoff. He has had a great series

? ? ? ? and richly deserves the award.

? ? ?  This was the award for the English Man of the Series, chosen by the

? ? ? ? Australian coach John Buchannan

? ? ?  Similarly Duncan Fletcher picks out Shane Warne as Australia's

? ? ? ? player of the series. Another great cricketer, another award

? ? ? ? richly deserved.

? ? ?  'It's been one of those series ... it was an amazing series.

? ? ? ? England were just too good for us in this series, and you have to

? ? ? ? hand it to them,' says Warne

? ? ?  'I always enjoy playing in England. The crowds in all the Tests

? ? ? ? have been sensational. It's just a pleasure to play here.'

? ? ?  Now the Australian team comes up, in batting order, to the podium

? ? ?  Finally Ponting comes up to have a word

? ? ?  'It looked early on that the game would be set up well. But England

? ? ? ? played great cricket all summer. They've outplayed us in every

? ? ? ? Test match other than the first one. Congratulations to Michael

? ? ? ? Vaughan and Duncan Fletcher,' says Ponting

? ? ?  'We had a few chances but did not take them. Kevin Pietersen played

? ? ? ? magnificently. This was one of the best series I have ever played

? ? ? ? in.'

? ? ?  There's a new award instituted this series. It's the Compton-Miller

? ? ? ? award for the player of the series. Picked by Trevor Hohns and

? ? ? ? David Graveney, that man is Andrew Freddie Flintoff

? ? ?  'It's been a great summer. Today is really special,' says Flintoff.

? ? ?  'We've played great cricket over the past five weeks. You've got to

? ? ? ? pinch yourself to know you're not dreaming. To play a part in

? ? ? ? winning the Ashes for England is something you dream about as a

? ? ? ? kid.'

? ? ?  Now the England team comes up, in batting order, to the podium

? ? ?  Huge roar from the crowd as Michael Vaughan comes up to the podium

? ? ? ? to recieve a replica of the famous Ashes urn. There's also a

? ? ? ? trophy from the sponsors for Vaughan to collect.

? ? ?  'It's been an incredible series. Full credit to Australia and the

? ? ? ? way they have played,' says Vaughan '

? ? ?  'Winning the toss and batting on four out of five occasions

? ? ? ? certainly helped.'

? ? ?  Vaughan now holds that famous little urn up in the air and the

? ? ? ? crowd roars with great gustos been fantastic and we appreciate

? ? ? ? this.'

? ? ?  Vaughan now holds that famous little urn up in the air and the

? ? ? ? crowd roars with great gusto

? ? ?  The confetti flies, the bubbly is uncorked, Team England bask in

? ? ? ? the adulation as the celebrations begin in right earnest!

? ? ?  That brings us to the end of the coverage of this Ashes series, as

? ? ? ? England take a lap of honour around The Oval

? ? ?  It has been a pleasure and a privilege bringing this series to you.

? ? ? ? We hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we enjoyed bringing it

? ? ? ? to you!

Did anyone see the one which said "I missed my wedding for this"

That was classic :D :devil:

Still can't believe England won, but an amazing achievement, the better team won, fair and square, though it was getting very close when they were 5 wickets down,
