Burns, Sibley, Foakes are of that ilk.

On the topic of cricket knighthoods it's great to see Strauss get one. One of only 3 men to captain England to home and away Ashes wins.

Mike Brearley being one but not sure who the third would be!

We need another Trott, some boring fecker who deals in 1's & 2's only to come in and take the sting out of the attack.

Fact fans- England have faced more balls than Australia in this series, but scored less runs.

Sibley with another 50 for Warks.

Another fun fact - Marnus Labuschagne has played 3 less innings than most English batsmen and he's nearly faced more balls than all of them

I still think he'd hit it.

Well yeah - probably. He'd step across outside off stump and flick it down to fine leg for four...before doing the Macarena - a back flip - Big Fish Little Fish Cardboard Box - adjusting his gloves and pads and then punching gloves with his batting partner.

We’ve helped him a fair bit

Harsh on Leach. No disgrace with 28 wickets @ 27 in only 8 matches. Has shown he can bat a little as well. Who else is gonna spin? We can't go back to less economical Rashid and Moeen.
Dong Ren Out.

No Gower won at home in 85 but Gatting won next away tour, Im thinking Illy who won in 70 in Oz but not certain he won at home.
Saw him on TV @ headingley he was talking to Dickie Bird, they must both be 80 now Im guessing.

Other guy was Len Hutton in the 50's. Even before your time I'm guessing DES ;)

That’s when they used to give knighthoods to cricketers who only hit centuries

Yes, but I should have worked it out,
We won the home series at the Oval, Compton hitting winning runs, first time we had won ashes at home since before the Don started!
Then in Oz some really fast bowler who replaced fiery Fred (Typhoon Tyson) ripped em a new one!
