England coach Andy Flower wants England to win the series against Australia. Flower is happy that England has retained the Ashes but said that winning the series is England's main aim.

England won the first Test match at Trent Bridge by 14 runs and then went on to thrash Australia by 347 runs at Lord's. In the third Test at Old Trafford Australia fought back well scoring in excess of 500 runs and ensured that the hosts were under pressure.

Rain came to the rescue of the home team as only 20.3 overs of play was possible on the final day of the Test which ensured that England retained the urn.
