Australia captain Tim Paine on verge of Ashes history

If Australia avoids defeat in the fifth Test against England at The Oval starting Thursday, Tim Paine will join the list of Australia captains who have guided their teams to an Ashes series victory in England. It’s a feat no Australia captain has achieved since Steve Waugh had a 4-1 success 18 years ago. However, much of the credit will go to Steve Smith, who has so far scored 671 runs at 134.20 with three hundreds.
