Great words from England legend Michael Vaughan

10th August 2015

England regained the Ashes in convincing style Saturday by beating Australia by an innings and 78 runs in the fourth test, taking an insurmountable 3-1 lead in the series.

England needed 10.2 overs on Day 3 to take the three remaining wickets in Australia's second innings, dismissing the tourists for 253 and sparking wild celebrations on the Trent Bridge field.

For Michael Vaughan, former England cricket captain, it was the perfect combination of "talent, work ethic and enjoyment" that ensured England's path to victory.

"You're looking at a new clutch of cricketers that you want to watch - and you just want to be them," he said.

Vaughan, who was one of England's best batsmen payed tribute to Joe Root, who he said was the stand-out player of the series.

While England are cracking open their beers, Australia will be retreating back to the dressing room to consider their performance.

"Australia need to sit down and take a breath," says Vaughan, and offers some advice about how they can go about reviving their game.
