And as the last few fans start to drift away from Old Trafford, another English international summer comes to an end. It's been a rollercoaster ride with this summer's games against New Zealand and Australia. Never predictable - but that's why we follow sport, isn't it?
As I mentioned, there's plenty more county cricket on the BBC in the next couple of weeks - and after we've had the chance to pause for breath,the first Test against Pakistan begins in Abu Dhabi a month today. TMS will be there - and we'll be setting our alarm clocks to bring you the live text, with matches starting at 07:00 BST (and 06:00 GMT when the clocks go back after the second Test).
But until then, pour yourself a measure of your favourite beverage, put your feet up and relax - the Ashes belong to England again. Thanks for your company all summer, we'll see you soon.
