The Latest Ashes 5-0 Whitewash Series (2013)

England faltered in dismal fashion to lose the final Ashes test, and the entire series as a whole. A 5-0 throbbing was what ended their miserable winter away from home.

Going into the tournament as favourites after Australia had lost 7 of their previous 9 encounters, England never really saw the light of day from the Carnegie Mitchell Johnson and his fellow pacemen inflicted upon them. Losing by 381 runs, 218 runs, 150 runs, 8 wickets and finally 281 runs, England were reduced to a mere school cricket team. The final match saw them with a distant 448 to win, but they never lasted 3 hours as Clarke’s rampant side showed England their worst defeat ever.

Geoffrey Boycott as former English test player described the loss as pathetic, and the worst defeat considering that Australia had a fairly newer team compared to one that featured the likes of; Shane Warne, Matthew Hayden, Adam Gilchrist and Glenn McGrath.

None found.
