the adverb phrase

A prepositional phrase that answers any of these questions—When? Where?
How? Why? Under what conditions? or To what degree?—is an adverb phrase.
If you can logically move the prepositional phrase within the sentence, it
is probably an adverb phrase. Remember that an adverb phrase contains
no verb.

The adverb phrases in these sentences are underlined.
We walked after dinner. (When?)
The little boys and girls ran into the hallway. (Where?)
Audrey, one of the chaperones, certainly handled herself with class
yesterday. (How?)
John built the wooden shed with much assistance. (Under what
conditions?)
The underdog candidate won the state election by a landslide. (To
what degree?)

    Australia vs England

    Over 130 years ago, the Australian and English cricket teams met at the Kennington Oval. Australia shocked the British and took home victory. A mock obituary written in a British paper said the English body was to be burned and the ashes taken to Australia. This began the Ashes, a rivalry between England and Australia which continues to this day. Since 1882, well over 300 Ashes matches have been contested with Australia winning 128 and England 103. In addition to having the most overall match wins, the Australians also take pride in holding the Ashes for all of the 1990s and the early 2000s. The dominance was such that it led to much questioning in England over what was wrong with its team and leadership.
