Steve Smith awarded with the player of the Match award. In the post-match presentation, Steve Smith said, “I didn’t enjoy watching last week, but what a feeling today. Been here in ’13 and ’15 and we weren’t able to get it done. Special feeling and really proud to be part of this group of boys. Winning key moments, a build-up of pressure, I’m not really sure [what made the difference]. Incredibly pleasing to get rewards for the hard work. It’s been a good series, really enjoyed my time in the middle. A year off where I could freshen up, I’ve been so relaxed and chilled out but working incredibly hard on my game.”
“I love batting, don’t really like watching cricket. [Tim] has done a terrific job; he’s got a group together doing a terrific job. Bowling Marnus showed a bit of courage, Tim’s been exceptional. I’m two hundreds from two games at The Oval, so it’s a place I like batting. We came here to win the Ashes. We’ll do our best to go three up at The Oval.”
