Jofra Archer finishes with 6 wickets as Rory Burns takes an amazing catch diving to his right as Siddle ran the ball off the face of the bat. A fantastic spell of bowling after tea by Archer and Curran ripped through the Australian middle order. Jofra Archer thoroughly deserves the match ball as he has troubled the batsman all day and was by far the pick of the bowlers. England will look to build on this lead and put the game out of sight for the tourists

  • 95.3

    OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Jack Leach. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Hazlewood. Leach is out! He top edges the slog-sweep and England are all out for 329, a good start to the day for Australia taking two wickets inside 20 minutes of day 4. Interesting to see how much of a part Leach plays in the bowling attack for England with the ball gripping early on today, it should be a good run chase with the form Smith and Labuschagne are in, England will want them two in early and get Broad and Archer into them with fresh legs.

  • Day four of five and England are in the driving seat with a lead of 382, Leach and Archer will be looking to add a few in the morning session to get that lead to over 400, Australia will want England all out as quickly as possible and let the openers focus on their batting to try and get a decent partnership that has failed them in all four of the other test matches. This could be the last day of this test and if it is then that mean England will have drawn the series but with Smith playing excellently you can't see it being wrapped up today.

  • 90.6

    Pat Cummins to Jofra Archer. Short, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Labuschagne. That dot ball concludes day three and England are in the driving seat here after attaining a 382-run lead after day three. Good batting from Stokes and Denly in the afternoon session aided England's chances of getting a win from this match, Australia looked a bit lifeless but towards the end after some good fielding they started to see the light at the end of the tunnel with England being close to all out. The ball doesn't look to be doing much, a little bit of grip for the spinners and a little bit of movement from the seamers means the batters are faring well in the match, England will be looking at getting to 400 tomorrow and then try and add as many as they can after that to make sure Smith and co can't chase the total down.

    OUT! Caught. Jack Leach to Josh Hazlewood. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot flick, in the air uncontrolled to short mid wicket, by Root. England have won! Two in two for Leach and two catches in two for Root, in the end a convincing win for the home side a win of 135 runs, Wade the pick of the batters for Australia, Leach and Broad the pick of the bowlers for England, five wickets in the last session of the day gives England the win. A 2-2 draw for The Ashes series of 2019, a great contest between two great bowling attacks, Smith the pick of the players, scoring a ridiculous amount of runs in the 7 innings' he played, lots of good bowling from both teams and I think Australia showed why they have one of the best bowling attacks in the world.
