No matter what, Steve Smith will be a 'cheat' forever: Harmison

Australia retains the Ashes, baby. England and Australia will play the fifth and final Test as a consolation as the Kangaroos have already retained the urn.

The former Australian skipper, who has three centuries to his name apart from two fifties, has scored a total of 671 runs in five outings so far, almost the double of what the second-best has in eight innings (Ben Stokes, 354 runs) been.

A serious reason behind concern for England is the situation of their star all-rounder Ben Stokes who did not bowl in Australia's second innings at Previous Trafford following a shoulder harm sustained throughout his 11th over within the vacationers' first innings. He was demoted down the order in the fourth test to avoid facing the new ball but was castled in both innings for 22 and 31 respectively.

"Good to see reports that a group of Australians in Manchester overnight have foiled the activities of a gang involved in a series of robberies targeting Aussies and Kiwis in England this Northern summer". Smith has so far amassed 617 runs in three Tests of the five-match series.

All-rounder Stokes is the only English batsman to average over 50 in the series with 354 runs in four matches.

Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also congratulated Australia for winning the Ashes, with special mention to Steve Smith who scored 293 runs at Old Trafford to ensured his side retain the sport's oldest trophy with a match to spare.

"I don't know where it's going to stop but we are enjoying being along for the ride with him, that is for sure". He is just a genius and I never had any doubt that he would come back and be the player that he was."The scary thing is he's getting better", he added.

Squad: Joe Root (captain), Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow (wicketkeeper), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jack Leach, Craig Overton, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes.
