Aussies complete 4-0 series win at SCG

Aussies complete 4-0 series win at SCG

Australia captain Steve Smith was unsurprisingly named the Compton-Miller Medallist after his side's 4-0 Ashes success against England.

Steve Smith lifted the Ashes trophy after a dominant innings and 123-run victory in the fifth Test at the SCG to secure a four-nil series victory on Monday.

England had added 51 runs in the session for the loss of Moeen, with Bairstow looking solid and Root showing no particular signs of the illness that saw him in hospital overnight.

Mark Stoneman was leg before wicket to Mitchell Starc for a duck and lost a review in the process, and next ball Alastair Cook was put down at first slip by Shaun Marsh off Josh Hazlewood for five.

Things became worse between Hina and Shilpa when the former said that she is "unhygienic" in front of host Salman Khan. He got into ugly fights with many and has been accused of behaving inappropriately with Shilpa Shinde in the house.


The Baggy greens were led by master tactician and supreme batsman Steven Smith, who scored a magnificent 687 runs in the series (hundreds at Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne) and the way Smith played he earned the respect of his peers and opponent.

Shaun and Mitchell Marsh earlier became the third set of brothers to score centuries in the same innings for Australia.

England's all-time leading wicket-taker has never had such a big workload in a Test series.

Off spinner Nathan Lyon also managed 21 in a superb series and his nickname of GOAT - Greatest Of All Time - might be starting to lose the original tongue-in-cheek inflection were Shane Warne not still ever-present in the commentary box.

Chris and Margot soon got stuck into the competition, offering their best Crocodile Dundee impressions, for which they tied.


England must now turn their attention to winning back the urn on home soil next year, but by the time they next travel to Australia they would have been without an away Ashes Test win for more than a decade.

That the other initially controversial selection, Tim Paine, was solid as a rock behind the stumps might embolden the selectors to trust their gut instincts for further changes as Australia head on to a series in South Africa.

"We have just got to keep getting better and improving as a team".
