Aussie Fan Downs Three Pints To Steal The Show In Second Ashes Test

Australia are hammering England in The Ashes and fans Down Under certainly appear to be enjoying the action, if a new viral video is anything to go by.

Steve Smith and Co wrapped up a comfortable 275-run victory in Adelaide on Monday to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

With the action on the field so one-sided, Australian supporters have been in the mood to celebrate with a drink or two.

And one Aussie fan has absolutely stolen the show in a new viral clip, which has been dubbed ‘The most Australian minute of video you’ll ever see’.


The footage, taken by Sky Sports News reporter Jamie Weir, shows a green-haired Aussie supporter downing a pint of beer on day four of the match.

He sets off to take two more beers back to his seat but is egged on by his fellow supporters to immediately neck another.

After responsibly recycling his plastic cups, he slowly walks back to his final remaining beer.

Allowing the tension to build, the fan then downs his final beer – prompting wild celebrations in the crowd.

England's Barmy Army will hope to have their own reasons to celebrate when the third Test gets underway in Melbourne on Boxing Day.

England need to win the match to have any hope of reclaiming the famous urn.

England captain Joe Root has criticised his players for making the same mistakes in both Test so far this series and has called on his bowlers to be braver with the ball.

“If you look at the first innings in particular I thought we were just a little bit short with the ball, we didn’t challenge them enough,” Root said.

“We need to be braver, we need to get the ball up there, and as soon as we did that in the second innings, the amount of chances we created and how dangerous we looked, that’s the benchmark for us moving forwards.

“We weren’t brave enough at times to get the ball up there and get them driving.”
