Australia have”unfinished business” and may”always improve,” says captain Tim Paine, following the attracted Ashes series ensured that the tourists chose the urn house.
England won the fifth and final Test at The Oval by 135 runs to draw the series 2-2 and deny Australia a series triumph in England since 2001.
Paine said the series wasn’t”a finish” for his captaincy and that he had”a little bit to give in that distance”.
“The urn is what we came to get,” he told Test Match Special.
“We understood the principles across the Ashes and also a draw is good enough.
“I think there’s lots of advancement in this facet. There’s always things we could get at and there’s always business we could attend to.
“I’m looking forward to a tiny bit more”
Summer paine was appointed Australia captain in the aftermath of the scandal at March 2018 and mimicked the home of last year.
Asked about how the group had turned around as the events from South Africa, Paine stated:”It began before this Ashes series. It had been there in the lead-up before the World Cup.
“From where we’ve come , to make a World Cup semi-final and retain the Ashes is a really big achievement from what this group was through.”
Batsman Steve Smith won the Compton-Miller medal for his astonishing series that saw him score 774 runs in 110.57.
Smith returned to Test cricket at Edgbaston after serving a year old ban for his part in the event and has been booed throughout the opening stages of the collection.
But he had been given a standing ovation from the crowd at The Oval after England maintained his wicket.
“I noticed that I got applause. It was a really great reception now, I got and it meant a great deal.
“The series has ebbed and flowed. I have loved every minute and I’m very proud of the way I’ve been able to functionality for Australia and to bring the urn house.
“You always need to get better as a player. Keep working hard and nothing is too much”
Smith also thanked his wife, Dani, along with his family for their support .
“It is our very first wedding anniversary now. She’d hate me if I didn’t mention ,” Smith explained in his post-match news conference.
“The support she has given me over here, I can not thank her enough.”
Paine added the experience in England of retaining the Ashes would be something he’d”never forget”.
“I did not think I would still be doing this [that the captaincy], in all honesty,” he added.
“I’m very lucky to be in the position I’m in.”
Australia leave England with number one bowler and the world’s number one batsman in Smith.
However their batting has fought – with the exclusion of Smith and Marnus Labuschagne, middle order and their best have not contributed.
David Warner ends the string with 95 runs from 10 Test innings – the cheapest yield for any opener in a five Test collection – and Australia have attempted two openers at Cameron Bancroft and Marcus Harris, neither of whom have especially impressed.
Matthew Wade bookended the excursion but there are concerns within Usman Khawaja, Warner along with Travis Head.
Australia will leave about not being able to close a series win.
“Tim Paine will have a couple nightmares about this throw,” former Australia fast bowler Glenn McGrath stated, after Paine chose to bowl first on a great batting track.
“England got a great deal out of this previous Test and 2-2 isn’t too far off the mark”
