The Ashes 2023

‘Ek dum sahi bola Finch bhai ne’ – Fans react to Aaron Finch’s bold statement after Australia retained the Ashes urn

The Ashes urn will remain with Australia after a draw in the fourth Test in Manchester

Aaron Finch

When the Pat Cummins-led squad won the Ashes after the fourth Test ended in a draw, the former Australian skipper Aaron Finch viciously mocked England legends for being whiners. The hosts were ahead, but two days of nonstop rain saved the Australian team.

Unhappy with the result, Michael Vaughan, along with other English icons, even criticised the weather. Nevertheless, English players were at fault for failing to end games when necessary. During the first Test, Ben Stokes unleashed a suicide declaration that caused England to lose. During the second match at Lord’s, the England captain was short of partners. He would have been able to deliver the win in the second test if he had a good partner at the other end.

The batsmen for England disappointed in the first two Test matches. Finch, meanwhile, didn’t agree with the reasoning and ridiculed former cricket players. The former Australian skipper took to Twitter to come out in support of his country as he tweeted, “Apologies… Pat and the team had control over the weather ??”

“I think what we’ve managed to do has already done wonders”: Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes, the captain of England, asserted that his squad is going to be “a team people will remember” in spite of not taking home the Ashes. Since Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum teamed up last year to supervise a transformation in the squad’s attitude to red-ball cricket, putting their focus firmly on delighting the paying public, this was the nation’s first draw in 17 Test matches.

Ben Stokes spoke to the reporters after the fourth Ashes test. He said, “It’s a tough one to take, a tough pill to swallow. But I think what we’ve managed to do has already done wonders for cricket in England. I said in the dressing room that the reward for your work isn’t what you get, it’s what you become.”

The final test at the Oval is only a few days away and both teams still have something to play for and would want to finish the series with a win in their bag. A win for Australia would mean the first Ashes series win in England after a long while.
