The Ashes – Man of Series Award Winners

The system of awarding the Man of the Series was started almost a hundred years later in 1978/79. The Man of the Series award is earned by the cricketer who has made the most important contributions for their team in the series. The first-ever Ashes Man of the Series award was earned by Dennis Lillee in the 1978/79 series in Australia.
