Root hospitalised after record Sydney scorcher

Australia’s quartet of bowlers combined for 90 wickets across the series—each taking at least 20—the tourists tried nine bowlers across the five tests for a paltry return of 58 wickets which was the second-fewest by an England squad ever in a five

With the final Test finishing in Sydney after 2am Monday (London time), the Evening Standard was the first newspaper to go to press since the SCG match and wasted no time in calling for coach Trevor Bayliss' head.

Australia were closing on an innings victory with England fighting a desperate rearguard on 93 for four at stumps on the fourth day of the fifth Ashes test on Sunday, still 210 runs from forcing their hosts to bat again.

While Australia flourished with the bat, England continued to struggle.

This England squad, led by Root on his first tour as England captain, was more competitive than their predecessors in 2013-14, taking each match to the fifth day.

Australian captain Steve Smith praised Root 's efforts to try and save the Test for England on a testing final day. "We've been on top in some games, if not all the games at some stage".

"We have just been able to get on top and win those key moments and not let them back in the game which is crucial".

As for that offensive potency, much could be traced back to how aggressive the Lakers were on the other side of the ball . He has criticized Walton's coaching before and made Lonzo Ball a target of other players .

"We've known for a few weeks they're going to lift the (Ashes) urn, but I guess, seeing them do it in person is tough to watch", Anderson told reporters.

"I couldn't asked for much more", said an ecstatic Cummins.

"After Perth, we were all bitterly disappointed as we had come over here thinking we could challenge Australia and to be three down after three Tests was not where we wanted to be", he said. "Once we get to the ground or the dressing room and we're out on the field, that's what we're focused on".

Joe Root's batsmen have wilted over the course of this series in comparison to their opponents, with just three Test hundreds to Australia's nine.

The 28-year-old looked all but immovable at the crease at times during the series and three centuries, one a double and two unbeaten, left him with an average of 137.4 and his status as the world's best batsman intact.

"I do think it's been closer than 4-0". Though Dawid Malan has emerged as competent at Test level, James Vince and Mark Stoneman have produced just two half-centuries over the course of the campaign - returns that Farbrace rightly pointed out simply do not cut it.

It was a dream day for the Marsh brothers, but they might have been enduring nightmares after celebrating Mitchell's hundred somewhat prematurely.
