Boony's back! And this time he's got company....

With the Ashes upon us at last we're giving you the chance to enter the fray, so rediscover your competitive edge and enter our competition to win the star of the last Australian summer and his new pal.

We've got five Boony and Beefy dolls to give away courtesy of the nice chaps at VB, so answer the question below correctly and you could have the pleasure of their company for the whole of the Ashes series... and beyond! We've also got some t-shirts, thanks to the good folk of Marston's - but they're likely to appeal only to followers of the Poms, as they celebrate the 2005 Ashes.

Boony dolls became a phenomenon in Australia during the VB series of Winter 2005 as part of a VB promotion, with Boonies all over the country programmed to respond sporadically to the TV coverage. Australia was hooked: internet forums sprang up and Boony dolls nationwide were dissected as people tried to unravel the mystery.

Enter our competition and you could find out for yourselves what makes him - and now Beefy - tick....

During the 2005 Ashes summer there was just one English player playing county cricket who had experienced a victorious Ashes campaign. Can you name him?

Email us at boonie@cricinfo.com leaving your name, address and answer.

Winners will be announced towards the end of this Test match so watch this space.

*Hint!* ... The answer is on the site so get looking!
