The Australian cricket team has created history this time around as it has retained the Ashes for the first time since 2001 on the English soil. The magnificent batting by Steve Smith supported by some wonderful fast bowling by the pacers has helped the visitors in winning the 2 games in the series so far.
Head coach Justin Langer has applauded his team for being consistent throughout the Ashes this year as he believes that the exceptional display of Test batting by Steve Smith has helped the younger players in gaining valuable experience at the highest level, but he still wants them to perform.
“As Australian Test cricketers, you've still got to perform but whether it makes a difference that we won the Ashes or not, time will tell. You've still got to perform whether you're young or a veteran, but we also have to recognize they are young batsmen and it's a really tough school and hopefully they'll come through at some point,” he added.
