Australian Players Doing Push-ups after Retaining Ashes
The ashes urn will remain in Australia for the next two years, as the team led by Tim Paine beat England by 185 runs in the fourth test to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. Australian players euphorics were unable to control their emotions when they entered celebration mode at Old Trafford on Sunday night by doing Push-ups and Sing John Williamson’s True Blue song after retaining the Ashes.
Veteran spinner Nathan Lyon seemed to lead the celebrations as visitors sang “True Blue,” an Australian folk song written and performed by singer-songwriter John Williamson.
The Australian team also did push-ups on the field. Baggy Green looked in good spirits after recording a euphonic victory over Joe Root & Co.

Tim Paine also became the first Australian captain to retain the Ash Urn on English soil since Steve Waugh in 2001.
After the famous victory, Steve Smith, “The Man of the Party,” he said: “It feels fantastic to know that the urn is coming home. Incredibly special.
“I’ve been here several times, things haven’t gone well, and we haven’t had our best performance in 2013 and 2015. To come back here, I always wanted to mark my wish list to get the Urn around here. There’s another game, and we’d like to win it. Extremely satisfying.”
