After six and a half weeks, a brilliant, hard-fought Ashes series concluded and cornered most of the buzz on social media.
England sealed a 135-run win over Australia in the final Test at The Oval to tie the series, but Australia retained the urn, which they won in 2017-18 at home. This was the first time in 47 years that an Ashes series was drawn. Both teams found something to celebrate.

It was a memorable summer for the hosts, indeed.
And what better way to finish things off than a wonderful representation of the spirit of cricket!
England head coach Trevor Bayliss bid goodbye to his role with the team, and there couldn't have been a better way to do it.

29 wickets and 774 runs in the 2019 Ashes one picture! How good were the No.1-ranked MRF Tyres ICC Test bowler and batsman were throughout the series?
In the West Indies, Australia's women's team have been crushingly dominant, and are yet to lose a game on tour. Skipper Meg Lanning has been among the runs, but it's not been all smooth sailing for her.
The Pandya brothers had a face-off in the nets.
Andre Russell took a blow to the head during a CPL game, but his week got better with some good news!
This will definitely bring back childhood memories. Been there, done that!

While visiting a friend in London, a local youth invited me to join the kids for cricket.— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) September 16, 2019
