Prolific Steve Smith says ‘pretty cooked’ after Ashes effort

Australia coach Justin Langer has expressed doubt about David Warner's ability to rediscover top form after the batsman was terrorised by Stuart Broad during a torturous Ashes campaign.

England secured a 135-run victory in the fifth Test at The Oval on Sunday to see the series drawn 2-2, although that was enough for Australia to retain the urn.

Any statistical analysis of Australia retaining the urn must start with Steve Smith's extraordinary accomplishments.

That gave him an average of 110.57 - more than double Stokes' second-ranked 55.12 - as he contributed over 30 per cent of his side's runs in his first series since being suspended and stripped of the captaincy for his part in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa. The series ended as a 2-2 draw, and as Australia had defeated England in the 2017/18 series, the team from Down Under retained the urn.England Cricket's official Twitter handle shared the picture of players sharing a dressing room and captioned the post as "This is what Ashes cricket is all about!" "To bounce back from a very hard emotional week, to come and play in the manner we have, the team has character in abundance". Nonetheless, Langer remained adamant that "you never write off champion players".

"Really, I am hopeful he comes good. Speaking frankly, I assumed he let Stuart Broad get into his head and I feel he thought manner an excessive amount of about it".

The team from Down Under will next face Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I series whereas England will take on New Zealand in a five-match T20I series and two-match Test series.

Smith's prolific run not only restored him at the top of Test batting rankings but also won over the hostile English fans, who booed him throughout the preceding World Cup and much of the Ashes series.

"I used to have lean runs all the time but even great players have lean runs and I'm sure David - we know he's a very good player, there's no question about that - but he had it tough, particularly against Stuart Broad", continued Langer.

Meanwhile, Langer was receptive to the idea of outgoing England coach Trevor Bayliss performing a future role for Australia. "Which conversation would you join".This is the first time in 47 years that the Ashes ended as a draw.

"He's a seasoned campaigner, he's an Australian".
