Australia win the Ashes: How Ben Stokes ruined England’s hopes

ENGLAND coach Trevor Bayliss has laid bare the game-changing impact Ben Stokes’ absence has made on their Ashes disaster.

Bayliss was forced to answer questions about his coaching future, which could go on the line if England lose in a whitewash, but the reality is he has been badly let down by his misbehaving players.

None more so than Stokes, the champion all-rounder who is one of the most brilliant match-winners in world cricket.

Stokes is yet to be punished by authorities or the England Cricket Board, but watching his teammates slump to a 3-0 thumping at the hand of Australia is surely the most damning lesson he could learn.
