Ashes 2021-22: Watch - Marnus Labuschagne makes bizarre appeal for a catch despite Jos Buttler missed the ball by miles


The Ashes 2021-22 has been a great disappointment for England, as they have lost the series against Australia. Having a look at the recently concluded 4th Test between these two teams, Australia has won the toss and elected to bat.

They got a decent start from their openers who added 51 runs for the first wicket partnership. Steve Smith got some runs under his bat as he scored 67 along with Usman Khawaja who smashed a fabulous hundred and returned to the dressing room after scoring 137 runs.

At the end of the first innings, Australia declared for 416 runs and asked the opposition to score more than the total. In reply, England didn't get the expected start as they lost four wickets for 36 runs. However, Ben Stokes' 66 and Jonny Bairstow's 113 runs helped England to post 294 runs on the board.
