It was an emphatic victory for hosts Australia in the third Test as they gained an unassailable 3-0 lead and regained the Ashes urn after four years. Australia won the third Test by 150 runs. Emotions were overflowing and celebrations unleashed after the win. Michael Clarke had come under severe criticism after the 0-3 loss earlier in the year. But Clarke and co. have fought hard and brought a remarkable turnaround to outplay England in every department of the game. On their way to this win Australia have lost three Ashes series since their last win in 2006-07 when they whitewashed England 5-0. Below are Twitter reactions to Australia’s historic win.
Congratulations to Australia on winning back the Ashes. Outplayed England in all departments and deserve their 3-0 lead.
