An Ashes victory without that many runs from the heavy bat of KP is even more remarkable when Aussie batsmen dominated throughout the series. In the final analysis, the composure of Strauss and the ever-improving genius of Broad lifted the Poms... But one cannot negate the individual cameos by Panesar and Anderson at Cardiff, Collingwood's grinding attack and Swann's petulant flinging bat!
