Ashes 2015 win tinged with anger

England’s Ashes win is tinged with anger because of past criticisms, according to selector Angus Fraser reports BBC Sport
Captain Alastair Cook faced repeated calls to resign last summer, while, in March, Geoffrey Boycott said national selector James Whitaker should also go. In addition, cricket director Andrew Strauss was derided for not ending Kevin Pietersen’s international exile.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra, former England pace bowler Fraser added: “There’s a bit of anger.
“But there is also huge satisfaction. I’m delighted for Cook and Strauss, who took a lot of stick for the decisions he made.”

The key question coming into the fourth Ashes Test was who would stand up to lead England’s attack in the absence of James Anderson.
Jonathan Agnew never doubted that Broad would deliver.
“He’s a very competitive player and I always felt the responsibility would do him good. But that’s not to say I expected him to take eight wickets for 15 runs”.
