Australia thrashed England in the fifth Ashes Test, winning by 146 runs in Hobart on the third day, as they retained cricket's oldest international trophy with a 4-0 series victory (one match drawn).

The home side had won in Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne to take an unassailable 3-0 lead before the tourists mamnaged to achieve a draw in Sydney with only one wicket to spare. England have now gone 15 Tests in Australia without winning after consecutive 5-0, 4-0 and 4-0 series defeats (two draws).
