London: Former England batsman Geoffrey Boycott has described the current team's 0-5 drubbing in the Ashes series by Australia as "depressing and humiliating".

"This has been one of the most depressing and humiliating days for English cricket," Boycott wrote in his column for The Telegraph Sunday when England lost the fifth and final Ashes Test in Sydney inside three days.

"Losing is part of the game, but we've lost five Test matches and this (Sydney) has been the worst defeat, because it's happened in three days. We just collapsed. We almost gave up. It got to the point today where Michael Clarke told his batsmen to just bash runs as quickly as they could," Boycott wrote.
