The Ashes Top Performers

After five thrilling encounters, Australia successfully retained The Ashes, as a rain-affected draw in Manchester sealed England’s fate. Despite Ben Stokes’ team winning the fifth and final Test, levelling the series at 2-2, the coveted urn remained in Australia’s possession. We look at the top performers from the recently concluded Ashes series.

Top Run-Scorers

Throughout the first three games of the Ashes, Usman Khawaja was the standout batsman, with his consistent and impressive performances. However, Zak Crawley showcased his prowess with a remarkable century in the rain-affected fourth Test, propelling him to the top of the runscorer’s leaderboard. Despite Crawley’s outstanding innings, Khawaja’s showing in the final Test allowed him to reclaim his position as the highest runscorer of the Ashes 2023.
