The 2005 ashes team

The 2005 ashes series most say it was the most captivating and gripping series of all time. These 5 test matches gripped the nation and England regained the Ashes. This is where the players are now.

  1. Marcus Trescothick- Marcus is now still playing first-class cricket at the age of 44. He is a big help for the young players with all that experience.
  2. Andrew Strauss- Andrew has recently stepped down from England director of cricket role. This was sadly due to his wife dying of cancer. My thought goes out to his family.

    1. As somebody who watched the conclusion of the nail biting second Test on a fuzzy black and white screen in a Scottish cabin, let me tell you, it most definitely did grip the nation. Then we immediately took cricket away from free to air TV, lie to everybody that kids play it in schools (I mean public schools), lost the opportunity for kids to discover the sport the way I did, find heroes and be inspired and now have a World Cup and Ashes where people will be grasping for highlights!
