Australia Win Ashes With Crushing Victory In Third Test

Australia reclaimed the ashes by winning the third test at Perth's Waca ground by an innings and 41 runs.

Needing 259 runs to make Australia bat again on a day where rain and a water damaged pitch delayed the start, England were bowled out for 218 in their second innings.

Josh Hazlewood claimed 5-48 for Australia, as the hosts took an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.
