Listen to the Sky Sports Ashes Podcast as Nasser Hussain, Mark Butcher and Steve Harmison join Rob Key to review England's 4-0 Ashes series defeat and more...
England's miserable Ashes campaign came to an end on Monday as Joe Root's side were beaten by an innings and 123 runs at the SCG.
The defeat saw Australia claim a 4-0 series victory and Nas, Butch, Harmy and Rob discuss where it all went wrong for England in the series and how it all went right for Steve Smith and the Aussies.
"It was like someone famously said: it was déjà vu all over again," Hussain said. "England - in fact generally, most sides - don't go to Australia and do well. If you look historically it's a difficult place to go and win.
"Through the course of this series it was like déjà vu, waking up every morning to see England maybe getting to a reasonable position before the wheels came off. It seemed like the same Test match time and time again.
"England can have no complaints. They won four out of the five tosses and in recent times they've won a lot of tosses away from home, but their record away from home is abysmal.
"They've lost nine of their last 11 Test matches. England have turned out to be a very one-dimensional side. When the ball is moving around they look a good side but when it's not, they don't."
The Sky Sports experts also delve into how England can rectify their poor form in Australia and away from home in general, looking at fast bowling, spin bowling and batting.
For all that, discussions on Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow's batting positions, Trevor Bayliss, split coaches and the Panel's verdict on who might be in the Test squad for England's tour of New Zealand, download the Sky Sports Ashes Podcast now!
