Summary

  • Fast bowler Pat Cummins took 4-39 as Australia wrapped up an easy victory over England to complete a 4-0 series win on day five of the final Ashes Test in Sydney.
  • England added 87 runs to their overnight score to end on 180-9, with captain Joe Root retiring hurt on 58 due to a stomach bug, as the tourists lost by an innings and 123 runs.
  • However, the England captain was unable to continue his innings after the lunch break, with Cummins then producing a hostile spell of fast bowling to remove Bairstow, Stuart Broad and Mason Crane.
  • The tourists went the entire series without having taken 20 wickets in a Test, while all four of Australia’s frontline bowlers took in excess 20 wickets each over the course of the series.
  • England must now clear their heads and get ready for an ODI series against Australia, with the first match getting underway in Melbourne on 14 January.
