 Headingly Dressing Room, Leeds, 1981:England all-rounder Ian Botham is seen in a reflective mood, smoking a cigar in the dressing room. Botham had made 149 against Australia in the Leeds Test match of 1981. Despite following on, England turned the game around with Botham’s heroics with the bat and Bob Willis with the ball. England won the series often called “Botham’s Ashes” — arising from his complete dominance of Australia.”

 Flintoff consoles Brett Lee, Edgbaston, 7 August 2005: “at the end of one of the greatest Test matches ever, Englandall-rounder Andrew Flintoff broke away from the team celebrations to console the dejected Australian batsman Brett Lee. Lee and Michael Kasprowicz had brought Australia within three runs of an unlikely win before Kasprowicz got out. England went on to win the Ashes for the first time in 19 years, but this moment stood out and Flintoff was applauded for his thoughtfulness. Despite intense rivalry between the two teams, Flintoff and Lee remain mates.”
