Adam Brett has become one of the biggest names in Australian cricket after the World Cup.
The Australian batsman has been named the best Australian of the Ashes series, taking the title from James Pattinson.
Brett was Australia’s best batsman in the Ashes, leading the series by an innings of 39.11 and the series with five wickets in seven games.
“I’m really excited for the next couple of months,” Brett said.
“We’ve got a lot of great players coming up in the squad, and I’m really looking forward to helping them out with their preparation for the Ashes.”
Pattinson’s Ashes record stood at 4-38-1.
Bret was the only player in Australia’s team to play in all seven Ashes series.
He was the most prolific batsman of the series in Australia and was the leading run-scorer.
Battling for the last of the three Ashes Test slots was the last big opportunity for Brett to shine.
“Obviously the opportunity has come up, so it’s been great,” Brett told ABC Radio Adelaide.
“To be able to contribute to the team, to be able be on the field, I’m so happy.”
It’s been a really good week, it’s just been a great experience.
