Australia Regain Ashes After Beating England – Joe Root: bitterly disappointing and not down to lack of effort.
The 26-year-old’s first Ashes series as England captain ended in defeat with two Tests remaining. Root: past lessons we will have to learn very quickly. Maybe at times a bit of lack of experience. Sometimes things can slip away from you without realising. Maybe we needed to be a bit smarter on occasions
It was when Pat Cummins removed Chris Woakes that victory was sealed. Australia beat England in the third Test at Perth to win the Ashes.
The Aussies regained the urn with an innings-and-41-run win in Perth.
Joe Root insists his England team cannot be faulted for effort despite losing the Ashes at the earliest opportunity this winter.
England’s attempted Perth rearguard amounted to 218 all out and defeat by an innings and 41 runs after Australia had racked up 662 for nine declared – their highest Ashes total on home soil – on the way to a series-sealing 3-0 scoreline.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan had this to say. It is possible that “legends” Cook, Anderson and Broad could feature in the next Ashes series in England in 2019.
Root is a much humbled man. He was confident the England team could take away the Ashes. Despite this he said the players responded well to what was wanted of them. The Captain even considered that maybe he could have done more.
Will he be forgiven? It will be difficult to do that. The challenge is to avoid the whitewash. There’s still Melbourne and Sydney
