Australia were dominant in their Ashes win over England, and are now ahead of the Black Caps in the ICC test rankings.

Australia have wrapped up a 4-0 victory over England in the Ashes with their biggest win of the series, beating the tourists by an innings and 123 runs in the fifth and final Test in Sydney.

Australia captain Steve Smith averaged 137 in the series.

A fan asked on Twitter asking if organisers had made a version of the Australian hand with three fingers in the event the SCG Test was drawn.

There were the breathless stories in the Australian media, the most damaging breaking during the opening match of the series about how wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow had greeted Australia's Cameron Bancroft with a "friendly" head-butt a month previously.

England have endured plenty of taxing sessions this summer but none compare to the punishment they copped during Sydney's heatwave.

"Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did", she wrote. 'Please today stand up for every soul Mistreated. She later addressed someone directly who questioned whether she knew really who her abuser was.

The damage was minimal, with Cook undone on 10 by a lovely delivery from Nathan Lyon that turned sharply and hit the top of off stump.

Ranged against that was consistent brilliance of Australia skipper Steve Smith, who matched England's series tally of three centuries on his own - two of them unbeaten and the third a double. The team had a wonderful bowling attack in Mitchell Starc (22 wickets), Josh Hazlewood (21), Patrick Cummins (23) and Nathan Lyon (21), who all complimented each other and there was no respite for the English batsmen.

Root was too sick to attend the post-match presentation so Jimmy Anderson deputized for him, telling the crowd his team had been thoroughly beaten over the series.

Australia came into the series as massive favourites partly due to the home advantage but also the opposition (England) which was not in the pink of their health.

"The more we play together, the more we're going to get better as as group", Smith said.
