Australia have completed a dominant Ashes performance with a 146-run win in Hobart, to secure a 4-0 series win.

Despite the end result, this was the closest of the five Tests this summer, England threatening to chase down Australia’s target of 271 before losing 10-56 in another humiliating collapse.

Who ended the series with a bang, and who finished with a whimper? It’s time for you to decide.

If you’re new here, or just need a refresher, here’s how each mark out of 10 usually works:

1. An utter nightmare. Their team would genuinely have been better off with 10. Shane Warne will be calling for their head all summer long.
2. Didn’t make a pair or get tonked all about the park, but you couldn’t say much more of them than that.
3. Got a start with the bat or took the odd wicket with the ball, but looked well below the standard of international cricket.
4. A few bright moments notwithstanding, didn’t do nearly enough for their team.
5. Did his job without it being a really eye-catching performance.
6. Good.
7. Pretty good, actually.
8. Very good.
9. Excellent.
10. Magnificent. Calling them the player of the match would be an insult. Just give him the Allan Border Medal already.

If you need any more help, here’s how we rated every player from Hobart.

Was Travis Head the right choice for player of the match – and the series – or did Cameron Green’s wickets to start the rot deserve the nod? Can Sam Billings hold his head high after a topsy-turvy debut? And does Alex Carey’s twin lucky escapes with the bat dent his crucial 49, or his excellent catching in the final session?
