Australia swept the current Ashes 4-0 after comprehensively winning the fifth and final Test by 146 runs on Sunday at Hobart. Hosts won the series after some quality performances from players including newly appointed captain Pat Cummins' incredible bowling spells which posed a tough challenge to England's batting lineup. Pat Cummins, as a captain showed great capabilities throughout the series and was instrumental in the team's victory.
However, a leader is made of more than wins in his count and during the post-match celebration, Pat Cummins displayed the same. While celebrating the historic series win, players were about to open the champagne bottles to celebrate the win. However, Pat Cummins asked his teammates not to open the champagne bottles as Usman Khawaja, who practices Muslim religion, was keeping himself away from the celebration. Cummins then asked Khawaja to join the celebration and the whole team posed with the trophy.
