Australia could not change their Ashes record in England this year as well, as the men in baggy green have yet again been defeated in the Ashes 2015, with one more match to go.

Australia have not won an Ashes series since 2011 in England and the hosts continued to dominate under home conditons.

Aussie skipper Michael Clarke has already announced that he would hang his boots in the longest format of the game after the final Test match of the Ashes 2015 at The KIA Oval.

Former Aussie speedster Brett Lee is of the view that England have outplayed Australia in the ongoing Ashes series.

"England were better than Australia. I think we were a little tentative in the first Test, found our feet in the second but then met with swinging ball in the third and fourth Tests. Australia has a batting weakens against swinging ball, which got highlighted in these two matches."

He also said the loss has nothing to do with Australian players giving importance to the Indian Premier League (IPL) and that playing for Ashes series is altogether different. 

"No...IPL is nice to have, but nothing beats an Ashes series."

Lee also felt that there are a number of players in this Australia side who won't be seen donning the baggy green in the near future. Lee believed that Cricket Australia selectors will have to find the right balance between young and experienced players. 

"It has to be Michael Clarke, Brad Haddin, Shane Watson, Chris Rogers, Adam Voges and maybe even Peter Siddle who will not be seen playing for Australia now. We will see a number of changes in the next two to three months. Selectors will still need to find the balance between experience and youth. There will need to be some players who have miles under their belt as we have a relatively inexperienced bowling attack," said Lee.
