Hence, deservingly.. the Quote of the Day goes to Andrew Strauss.. on retaining the Ashes...
"Winning the Ashes in Australia has always been a bit of a Holy Grail for English sides," Strauss said. "We haven't won the Ashes yet, but we've retained the urn, which was one of our primary goals"
"Our objective was to come out here and win this series, and we haven't done that yet," Strauss said "It's very reassuring to know the Ashes is going to remain in England for another couple of years, but it would leave a very sour taste in our mouth if we weren't able to convert our position into a series win in Sydney."
Wishing the English team for their Ashes victory and wishing Strauss the very best for the final match to win the series too..
