Australia Retain The Ashes

As Australia won the old Trafford test match they go 2-1 up with one to play. England can not win the ashes. England to be totally honest have played poorly in these 4 test matches. The only test they deserved to win was the Lord’s test match. You just wonder what could have been if there was an hour less rain. Would we have bowler the Aussies out and won the game? England’s win at Headingley was undeserved as you can’t be bowled out for 67 and win a test. Yes, their last innings performance showed fight and resilience but anyone can show that. We won that game off the back of a Ben Stokes miracle. Australia outplayed England in all departments. There batting was much better. Smith and Labuschange showed England how you should play in English conditions. Big hundreds are what England missed. Also, Australia’s slip fielding was much better than Englands. Think Roy dropping Labuschange at Headingley we went on to win the game but it is a good example. England need to regroup before the next game and work out what they want to do going forward.

One thought on “Australia Retain The Ashes

  1. Yes – a thoroughly deserved triumph for Australia. England’s batting order in this series has simply failed to function effectively enough, The fact that the longest individual innings in England’s effort to avoid defeat on Sunday was played by Craig Overton, in the side for his bowling, says all that needs be said about how to top order went about their business.
