Australia thrashed England by an innings and 41 runs in the third test in Perth Monday to reclaim the Ashes with two matches to spare and condemn Joe Root's team to a period of gloomy introspection.Australia quick Pat Cummins wrapped up the match, dismissing Chris Woakes (22) behind the wicket, triggering a raucous round of bear hugs with whooping teammates in the middle.His captain Steve Smith was named man of the match for a second time in the series, his brilliant 239 having left England with an improbable second innings mountain to climb.Heavy overnight showers leaked rainwater onto the pitch in an embarrassment for the WACA ground staff and rain squalls further delayed the resumption of play.But even with some 28 overs and some three hours lost to the weather, it was far from enough to save the tourists, who lost their last six wickets for 85 runs.
