England do better in Australia, says Jimmy Anderson
James Anderson believes England will be even better when they play the return Ashes series in Australia this winter after securing a 3-0 victory after drawing the final Test at the Oval in controversial circumstances.
England were denied the chance to make Ashes history when the umpires took the sides off for bad light with the game minutes away from a thrilling climax and Anderson felt the large crowd were denied a fitting ending to the series.
The home side, looking to turn their 3-0 series win into a dream 4-0 success over the Australians, required 21 in 24 balls when Aleem Dar and Kumar Dharmasena produced the dreaded light meters and signalled the end of proceedings.
Anderson told Sky Sports Ashes: “We know we can go to Australia and play even better.

“It feels pretty good (to win the Ashes).
“It would have felt even better if we could have got the last few overs in there. I am delighted to have won the Ashes. Today was fantastic for the crowd.
“As it got closer and closer we really thought we could do it but unfortunately the light didn’t hold out.”
Despite the flat ending to the match Anderson said he would make the most of celebrating the series win.
“We are going to cherish this moment because it doesn’t happen every often.”
