Australia regain the Ashes from England after sweeping them aside by an innings and 40 runs in the fifth and final day of the third Ashes Test. It gave Australia an unassailable 3-0 lead in the Ashes with two Tests to go out and register another whitewash. Josh Hazlewood picked up a fifer to put a dent into the England batting which barely took off. Dawid Malan stood firm for the most part on the final day but he fell to a miserable shot. Australia would probably consider the 301-run stand between Smith and Marsh as the difference makers in this contest followed by the collapse England endured in the first innings. But in the end, Australia have fully deserved this win and the series win as well. Question marks over England in the next two Tests followed by the future of this team.
England all-rounder Chris Woakes is the last to fall and Australia have spanked the visitors here and in the two previous games. Woakes edges the upper-cut to Paine and massive celebrations ensue. Anderson looks shaken after yet another bouncer rattles an England batsman. Removes his helmet almost immediately after the impact. The England seamer took his eyes off the ball as it came right into him. Physio comes out to have a look and Anderson looks okay to continue and face the music once more.
