After winning the Ashes 4-0, Australia skipper Pat Cummins on Sunday said that to win the series so comprehensively is really a “stuff of dreams”.

“It really is the stuff of dreams. Pretty crazy. To be at the end of a 5-match series with so many positives and 4-0, yeah really pumped. I am really happy as a captain. We have had some 15 players used in this series, some tough calls. Certainly feels like we are on to something big,” said Cummins.

“I am super excited about overseas Test cricket. One thing in the pandemic we haven’t done is not to play too much Test cricket,” he added.
