England captain Alastair Cook and man of the series Ian Bell reflect on their Ashes win and look towards the next series on Australian soil.
Cook has warned Australia that his Ashes winners will prove a tough nut to crack when the bitter rivalry resumes later this year.
Cook's team concluded their dominant 3-0 series win over the Australians with a dramatic draw in the fifth Test at The Oval on Sunday and thoughts have already turned to the next instalment of cricket's most enduring grudge match.
England, set a target of 227 to win after Australia captain Michael Clarke's bold declaration, needed 21 more to win off 24 balls with five wickets left when the umpires decided the light, even with the floodlights on, was too dark to continue.
The draw meant England have now triumphed in three successive Test series against Australia for the first time since the 1950s.
