ASHES: England running out of steam

With Ashes victory secured, England struggled to keep up with Australia at The Oval as both teams sought momentum.

The Oval, Day Three — The crowd at The Oval likes its cricket. A Test in south London is not a social occasion like Lord’s on the other side of the Thames. Beer not wine is the drink of choice. The slow handclap started after tea. Each scoring shot was received with heavily ironical applause. They knew what England’s batsmen were doing, and they knew why, but they saw no reason to applaud it.
