The English all-rounder was in his peak form during the series and was a key factor in England regaining the Ashes at home. Andrew Flintoff took 24 wickets at an average of 27.29 and scored 402 runs at an average of 40.20 with three fifties and a solitary century.

Without any surprises, he was announced as the player of the series for his all-around performance. Flintoff showed a different shade in the Edgbaston Test during Ashes 2005. Specially Flintoff’s spell in that match took Australia to a defeat from a commanding position where Australia needed 234 runs to win the Test.

Andrew Flintoff changed the game in just one over by taking the wickets of Australian opening batsman Justin Langer and the skipper Ricky Ponting in the same over. That over started the collapse for the visitors and ended up England clinching a memorable win.

Recently the former English all-rounder faced the same over with the bat using the bowling machine that was programmed to mimic his deliveries from the over where he got rid of Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer.
