With confirmation of England retaining the Ashes coming after the third Test, captain Alastair Cook had plenty of time to anticipate lifting the replica urn. The green caps of Australia look on as England celebrate. England have now won four of the last five Ashes series. Jonathan Trott, who scored two half-centuries in the series, holds the replica urn as his team-mates look on. Graeme Swann holds the Ashes trophy and his son as the lap of honour around the Oval continues. Michael Clarke, who captained Australia's heaviest Ashes series defeat since 1978-79, looks on at the celebrations glumly. Kevin Pietersen and Alastair Cook continue their celebrations into the jubilant Oval crowd. Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Tim Bresnan show off the prize. Root was England's third highest-scoring batsman of the series. Australia will now turn their attention to 21 November when the next Ashes series begins at the Gabba in Brisbane. Captain Alastair Cook is flanked by James Anderson and Graeme Swann, two players so influential with the ball with a combined 48 wickets taken. Alastair Cook has a moment alone with the replica urn after his first Ashes captaincy ends in a 3-0 win.
