9. The Aussies away

Ashes 2010

9. The Aussies away – Only Len Hutton and Mike Brearley had won Ashes series home and away as captain, but Strauss was hoping to replicate them when England went Down Under in 2010. However, the first test didn’t go according to plan as England faced a deficit of 221 going into their second innings in Brisbane. Although that game will always be remembered for Cook’s 235, people forget Strauss made a wonderful 110 as well and it deflated the Aussies so badly that England went on to dominate the series.
