Former England captain Eoin Morgan has praised the level of cricket on display in the ongoing Ashes series between England and Australia. Many already compare the series to the iconic 2005 Ashes series, which is widely considered the best quiz series of all time.
The exciting competition on the pitch and the verbal warfare between the two cricket fraternities off the pitch have made the ongoing series one of the best in recent years. Every game in the series so far has delivered results, but none of them were one-sided.
Australia won the first Test by two wickets after being reduced to 227 for 8 while chasing 281. In the second Test, Ben Stokes played a heroic 155-run strike to put England on the brink of an historic victory, but the visitors managed to survive . big scare and won it by 43 runs to go 2-0 up in the five-match series.
With the series on the line, England put in a brilliant performance in the third Test, winning it by three wickets. The series is now set for a grand finale. While Australia are on the verge of winning their first Ashes series in England since 2001, the hosts will be looking to make the most of the momentum and win their first Ashes series since 2015.

With England and Australia showing an impressive level of cricket in the ongoing series, Eoin Morgan has admitted that he is in awe of the series. The World Cup-winning captain has lavished praise on players from both teams on his performance in the series thus far.
“It’s unbelievable. The twists and turns that we’ve seen throughout each session of each day have been truly remarkable. I don’t remember a series like this. Eoin Morgan told Sky Sports. “But this is different. This is the excellence of both teams going head-to-head for as long as they’ve had.”
The fourth Test is scheduled to be played from June 19 in Manchester. England need to win the game at all costs to keep the series alive.
