The Australian cricket team has retained the Ashes for the first time in 18 years on the English soil as Tim Paine and his men marched off The Oval with the prestigious urn. Even though the series ended in a draw, but the visitors retained the trophy, being the defending champions.
Fans posted all kinds of memes on the result of Ashes as some of them teased England for losing the urn even after leveling the series while others ridiculed the rules which result in such scenarios.
Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris took a subtle jibe at the English cricket team and the International Cricket Council (ICC) by referring to the use of super-over rule before bringing boundary count into consideration, the same rule which let England lift the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 trophy in July after beating New Zealand.
Furthermore, Black Caps cricketer James Neesham also joined the bandwagon as he asked all his fans to stop sending him tweets regarding England’s bizarre Ashes defeat even though they had not lost on paper.
