Later this month, Joe Root will lead his side out at the Gabba aiming to rectify England’s disastrous Ashes tour of 2013-14.
Australia has proved to be an unhappy hunting ground for various England sides since 1987, as Australia sides containing the likes of Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Steve Waugh, Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden regularly dispatched disjointed and poor England sides with supreme ease.
However, there has been one tour to Australia in which England reigned supreme over their arch-rivals.
Heading into the 2010-11 Ashes series, England were determined to make amends for the disastrous 2006-07 tour in which they had been whitewashed 5-0 as Australia tore them apart. England led by the axis of Andrew Strauss and Andy Flower, wiped the floor with their Australian counterparts, lifting the urn in front of thousands of delirious England fans in Sydney.
The England side that created history in Austraila would go on to become the World’s No.1 side later that year, for the first time since rankings.
Here is that side who pulled off that fantastic Ashes victory.
