Australia win Ashes 4-0

January 9, 2018

Australia have won the final test in the Ashes series by an innings and 123 runs to complete a 4-0 series victory over England.

Australia dismissed the tourists for 180 on the final day of the fifth test held in Sydney.

Australia dominated the series with both bat and ball. England managed only three centuries to Australia’s nine over the series, with Australian captain Steve Smith alone matching their tally.

He was named Player of the Series after scoring 687 runs at an average of 137.4, backing up his ranking as the world’s top batsman.

England bowler, Jimmy Anderson,  said that England’s failure to come out on top at key points during games had proved decisive.

“We were outplayed in the key moments. We have been in the games but just haven’t capitalised on the opportunities we have had,” he added.

England now play some One Day Internationals and then head to New Zealand to play against the Black Caps.
