Well done England!

A comprehensive win! Although the Aussies were awful, so it's hard to tell just how good we were. India should be a much tougher test.

I'm not sure you were watching the same Ashes series as I was but there was, for a large portion of the time a fairly even balance in the series. Yes the Aussies were awful but England were far from great too.

Australia is going through a period of rebuilding after a successive run of retirements of great cricketers. I believe a player churn is in Australia's interest to see who can step up to the plate. Most others seem to think a player churn is a bad move.

I wouldn't call 3-1 comprehensive. 5-0 is comprehensive.

There is no doubt though through this Ashes series England were overall the better team and deserved the win.
