Steve Smith, the Australian middle-order batsman, hails his team efforts in retaining the Ashes 2019. The right-handed batsman, who himself had a phenomenal outing in the series, is elated with the performance Australia produced.
Australia drew the series 2-2 but still managed to retain the Ashes in the foreign lands. Smith said that although the results were not exactly according to our wishes, still team did a great job.
“What a great Ashes series, thank you, everyone, for all the support, it is been a fantastic couple of months. Whilst we didn’t get the exact result we were after, still an amazing effort by this team to retain the Ashes”, Smith added.
The Ashes 2019 had great moments to write home about, probably it was the best Test series between the two arch-rivals since the Ashes 2005. Australia was competitive enough to overhaul England at their own backyard. The fans enjoyed an incredible summer of cricket in England which ended with an exciting Ashes series.
