Ashes Series 5

Ashes series 2019 comes to end with the victory of host England. It was the first series since 1972 which ended up on draw.

Finally England played some good cricket for the first time in this series. Although they have won the third test of the series as well but that was because of some poor umpiring of Kumar Darmasinha.

We have enjoyed some quality cricket in this series. Steve Smith and Ben Stokes with the bat and Pat Cummins, Josh Hazelwood, Stuart Broad and Jofra Archer with bowl were amazing. It would not be wrong if we say that Jofra Archer is a find of the series for England. But the captaincy of Joe Root was below average. England should think beyond him for test captaincy.

Steve Smith was on the peak of his form throughout in the series and scored 774 runs in just 7 innings. David Warner form remained a main concern for Australia in this series. He scored just 95 runs with the help of one half century in 10 innings. Overall Australia looked a better side throughout in this series.

  1. Surely you have to admit that England played well in the Headingly Test, even if the result was open to doubt. England had more players who did a good job consistently than Australia did, so an overall draw was surely a fair result.
