In what has become a recurring theme in recent weeks, another meek England batting performance and a typically hardworking, powerful effort from the hosts' pace attack has seen the Ashes Urn returned to Australia.

After reaching an unassailable 3-0 lead at the earliest opportunity, the Australian side impressed once more in our Fantasy Ashes game. A first innings century from Steve Smith scored very well, while contributions of 60 from David Warner and 55 from Brad Haddin made for a daunting total. Second innings centurions Warner and Watson both gained batting bonuses, while Ben Stokes' maiden century in only his second test a rare batting highlight for the visitors.

Across the match, wickets were spread across each team's bowlers, with no bowling bonus picked up for achieving a five-wicket haul, giving a very different look to the Fantasy Ashes table. Darren Ferris, whose side will be rewarded with this test's spot prize, bounced his way to the top of the table, with Phillip Mansfield racing into second place.

The Nottinghamshire professional cricket staff, while a way away from the top of the table, are beginning an entertaining contest between themselves. Mick Newell's 'Wake Me Up Before You Goa, Goa' have leapfrogged Paul Franks' side, but youngster Simon Webster isn't far behind. 

Here is the top 500, as it stands today:
