The 2006–07 cricket series between Australia and England for the Ashes was played in Australia from 23 November 2006 to 5 January 2007. Australia won the series and regained the Ashes that had been lost to England in the 2005 series. The five Tests of the series were played at Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. In winning, Australia completed a 5–0 "whitewash", the first time this had happened in an Ashes series since 1920–21. The series was also notable for the retirement of several significant Australian players, namely Justin Langer, Damien Martyn, Glenn McGrath, and Shane Warne.

Ricky Ponting was named Player of the Series.

Famous quotes containing the words series and/or ashes:

    The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.
    C. Wright Mills (1916–1962)

    Over the stark plain
    The stilted mill-chimneys once again spread
    Their sackcloth and ashes a flowing mane
    Of repentance for the false day that’s fled.
    William Robert Rodgers (1909–1969)
