The Ashes

One needs to compliment the Australian cricket team, ably led from the front by its captain Steve Smith, for its dream run in the Ashes. No one expected the England team to collapse like a pack of cards. The series has proved to be a boon for the Marsh brothers, Shaun and Mitchell, who contributed their mite when it mattered the most. Except for a flash at Melbourne, England’s reliable opener, Alastair Cook, was a total failure. One hopes that at least it will be competitive during the ODI series.
