England beat Australia by 135 runs in the fifth and final Test of Ashes 2019 to tie the five-match Test series 2-2. England, who came to London’s Oval 1-2 down in the Ashes 2019 and having already lost the Ashes Urn, put up their best team performance and when Jack Leach – who took 4/49 in the second innings – had Australia’s final two batsmen caught by England skipper Joe Root at slip, the home team had scripted a famous comeback to draw Ashes 2019. Fans have also been treated to some scintillating cricket throughout the series and didn’t forget to thank both teams and reserved special praise for Steve Smith but rued as the rules, which indicated that despite a series tie, Australia would retain the urn and take it home.

Smith, who has been the standout player among both teams, scored an astonishing 774 runs in just seven innings of Ashes 2019. The 30-year-old right-handed batsman has smashed and created new records, including a 49-year-old record set by the great Sunil Gavaskar, every time he has stepped out to bat in Ashes 2019 also received enormous praise for his contribution of helping Australia retain the famous urn.

Australia won the first Test by 251 runs to take a 1-0 lead but England, helped with a superhuman effort from Ben Stokes, levelled the Test series in the third game at Headingley after the second game had ended in a draw. Australia then inspired by Steve Smith's Test return powered to another victory in the fourth Test and in the process retained the urn. The Ashes 2019 Test series, however, ended in a draw.
