1981, post Ashes

Ashes, 1981.

Despite having been 1–0 down to Australia after two Tests, England won the next three Tests to finish 3–1 victors (with two draws), thus retaining the Ashes.

The series is popularly known as Botham’s Ashes, owing to the remarkable performances of Ian Botham with both bat and ball.
