England collapsed yet again in the fifth and final Ashes test match. Australia continued their dominating performance in the series and scalped all the 10 wickets for just 124 runs. Australia won the Hobart match by 146 runs for a clean 4-0 sweep after England managed to draw the fourth test. Australia grabbed the win early on Sunday as the first two days of the match remained eventful with 23 wickets falling on either side.
On the third day of the match, Australia resumed with 37-3 after restricting England to just 155 runs a day before. Mark Wood and Stuart Broad did their magic grabbing nine wickets to set up a target of 271 runs for England. Taking charge, the first 16 overs went by slowly with Rory Burns and Zak Crawley’s 68 run opening partnership. After losing Burns for 26, England lost their next nine wickets cheaply in the next 23 overs and wrapped up the Test series.
