“Australia Retain The Urn” – Twitter All Over As The Aussies Thrash England To Win The Ashes

Australia Ashes

Australia thrashed England by an innings and 14 runs to retain the Ashes urn with two matches still to go. Riding on debutant’s 6/7, the home side bowled out Joe Root & Co for a mere 68 runs, with only two batters managing to cross the single-digit mark. From even odds to underdogs, to dark horses to getting properly hammered, things really couldn’t have gone worse for the visiting side.

England came into the third day staring at defeat already losing their top-order including nightwatchman Jack Leech. Joe Root and Ben Stokes were their only hopes but once Boland got Root and Mitchell Starc got the better of Mitchell Starc, it was only time that the English team would crumble down.

All they could manage was 68 runs in the second innings in reply to Australia’s first innings total of 267 runs. The Australian pacers have been absolutely sensational, and the English batsmen have clearly made them look unplayable. And the story is led by a debutant, who at 32 had perhaps given on the Test dream, only to find himself steamrolling his side on the way to the urn, at home.

Scott Boland, who will remember this day for the rest of his life, stated that things happened really quick for him in this Test match.

“I’m speechless as well, had no idea it would be over so soon. Those are my best-ever figures, nothing has happened this quickly before. They (the crowd) were amazing, going down there (near the boundary) gave me a real buzz,” Boland said after the match. 

Meanwhile, Twitter was buzzing with fans praising the quality the Aussies possess .
