16/01/2022 at 9:54 PM

Hobart, Jan 16: Australia completed a remarkable series win, bowling out England for 124 on day three of the fifth Test in Hobart.

England openers put on their first half-century stand in the series, but the rest of the line-up couldn’t muster much as Australia sealed a 146-run win in Hobart in the fifth and final Test.

Chasing a target of 271, England started solidly with Rory Burns and Zak Crawley reversed the trend by putting an opening stand of 68 runs. However, wickets continue to fall as the innings progressed under lights.

Chris Woakes, Mark Wood and Ollie Robinson were dismissed in the space of six balls as England went from 82/1 to 124 all out, conceding the match by 146 runs. Australia sealed their first series win under skipper Pat Cummins, a thumping 4-0 victory to retain the urn.
