Australia Cricket Team led by Steve Smith once again showed their supremacy by winning the Ashes 2017-18 against the defending Champions England on Monday.

The hosts brilliantly enjoyed the taste of the WACA track and once again regain their Urn against England at home, as the Kangaroos brilliantly managed to win the third Magellan Test by a big margin of an innings and 41 runs at WACA Ground in Perth with the help of their spectacular bowling attack and Captain’s match-winning knock of 239-runs.

With WACA victory, the Kangaroos took a 3-0 lead in the ongoing Ashes series and on the way to once again humiliate England in the prestigious tournament like they did in the 2013-14 season.
