An unexpected development was awaited after the Ashes party in Hobart, Australia, with English and Australian players as well. The players were fast bowler James Anderson, Joe Root and three Australian cricketers.
The police officer took an onsite video of these players partying and said it was for the lawyers. In the video taken by the police, Nathan Lyon, Travis Head, Alex Carey and Anderson were seen enjoying the party. As per reports, the recorded scenes are from Monday morning as Carey and Lyon were seen in their uniforms. The hosts won the fifth and final match of the tournament by 146 runs.
The nearby clock displayed 6:30 a.m. and assumed the players had an overnight party to celebrate the end of the Ashes series. Police intervened at the scene on a request made by the hotel management staff on a complaint of noise. The cricketers were seen following the call and immediately left the venue.

Meanwhile, newly appointed Test captain Pat Cummins was in full form and flow and was seen during the Ashes series. The Australian team defeated the England team by an embarrassing 4-0. In the closing ceremony, the captain made a warm gesture instructing his teammates to close the cork of the champagne bottle as Usman Khawaja was a Muslim and kept away from the sprinkling of alcohol while maintaining his religious beliefs. The incident created panic on social media.
Moments later, skipper Khawaja was seen giving the hint, who scored a scintillating twin century and was well received by the cricketer as well as the cricketer fans for joining the celebration. Appreciating the captain’s gesture in a classy move, Khawaja said in a tweet that the team is going in the right direction.
Pat Cummins realises Usman Khawaja had to step aside because of the alcohol spraying celebrations, asks his other teammates to put the drinks away and calls Khawaja back over to the centre of the victory photo to celebrate. This was nice ❤pic.twitter.com/zykZ4bWa9Y
