Kent's Robert Key and the incomparable Andrew Flintoff steered England to triumph with a 120 run unbeaten stand as England hit a record Old Trafford second innings victory total of 231.
Flintoff, hailed recently by Vaughan as the best cricketer in the world, hit 57 not out to register his seventh consecutive Test half century while Key was unbeaten on 93 as England took a 3-0 lead in the four-match series.
"This was a great achievement," said Vaughan. "From the context of the game on the fourth day, this was probably our best win of the summer. "When the match is in a situation where it could go either way, we firmly believe it will go our way. We never really know when we are beaten and that's a really good sign".
