The Ashes of 2021-22 has been a little disappointing for the fans.
I don’t know whether the Aussies were too good or England were lacking the rhythm and practice.
As we saw in the first Test, England were missing out on their front-line pacers but even after their comeback, nothing much changed.
England’s batting order has failed on the most of the occasions due to lack of practice.
I am taking nothing away from the Australian bowlers. Most of the times, the English batsmen have got out playing at the wrong line.
Every time England came out in the field, their body language has been quite passive.
The series is gone. They will be searching for a win at the back end of the series to avoid the 4-0 defeat and to give something for the England fans to rejoice about.
In 2013-14, England lost the Ashes 5-0. This time around they just managed to avoid a 5-0 defeat. They were annihilated by the clinical Australian side.
This has been a tremendous debut series for Pat Cummins as a captain. He got a five-for in the first innings of the first Test match at the Gabba.
Usman Khawaja also made his mark by scoring twin tons in the fourth Test at the SCG.
Marnus Labuschagne has been the top scorer for Australia and the Ashes as well. He has scored an aggregate of 286 runs.
His highest score is 103. He has an appreciable average of 47.6.
His total is followed by the England captain Joe Root, who has scored 277 runs in the Ashes in 2021-22 so far.
His best score is 89. He has scored his runs at an average of 34.62.
