Ashes Win Will Help Australia Put Ball-tampering Scandal Behind Them: McGrath

Australia celebrate the final wicket of Craig Overton. More

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting said on Sunday that the tourists' "relentless" bowlers deserve as much credit for retaining the Ashes as Steve Smith.

Holders Australia on the other hand would want to register their first away Ashes series win in 18 years as the last time they lifted the Ashes trophy in England was way back in 2001.

England fell to a 185-run defeat at Old Trafford as Australia retained the urn and head to their last worldwide red-ball match trailing the five-match series 2-1. Australia retains the Ashes, baby.

England have named an unchanged squad for the fifth and final Ashes Test against Australia at The Oval.

Wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow is averaging 20.57 in eight Test innings in 2019, while Buttler has a top score of 41 in eight Ashes innings.


"I thought Virat Kohli was the best batsman I've ever seen because of the way he plays in all forms, but Steve Smith". With exclusively three days left within the last Check, England skipper Joe Root would need his gamers to rectify their errors and are available good on all accounts in opposition to Australia to share the trophy. They analyse England's batting performance in particular and compare it to previous Test matches against India and West Indies.

After Australia's win over the home side, a publishing house by the name "Sporting Times" chose to add some insult to injury.

England needed to bat out the final day at Old Trafford to keep the Ashes series alive and set up a decider at The Oval.

In contrast to Roy, Australia's Marnus Labuschagne - the first player to make 1,000 first-class runs this English season while playing for county side Glamorgan - made four successive fifties after coming in as Smith's concussion substitute at Lord's.

"When you're known as a cheat - and he is, I'm not going to sugar-coat it, the three guys cheated - that's on your CV".
