Australia are currently leading the Ashes 3-0 after four matches as England managed to draw the 4th match. Even though England have lost the series, they are looking for atleast to win a match.

England bowlers did quite well to restrict Australia to just 303 runs in their first inning, all thanks to a brilliant bowling display form the Three Lions.


During their inning, a funny incident happened as England’s legendary pacer Stuart Broad was seen and heard screaming at the host broadcaster Fox Sports’ rover robot moving behind the batsman.

It was during the last of the 63 over when Stuart Broad stopped his run-up near the non-strike end stumps and screamed “Stop moving the robot”, trying to send the message to Fox Sports.
