Strauss

The only player in the 2005 Ashes series to make two centuries, Andrew Strauss had a memorable series. Following his impressive performances as an opener and Michael Vaughan's retirement, he took over the captaincy and became one of his country's best captains of all-time.

He took England to the top of the world rankings, for the first time in 31 years, courtesy of a home and away Ashes wins and a 4-0 whitewash of the then No.1 ranked in 2011. He also captained England in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup and in the following year, he retired from cricket.

In 2015, he was appointed as England's Director of Cricket and has since overseen a meteoric rise in their limited-overs performances.
