Cummins gets back on the stage and lifts the silverware! His team joins him and they pose for the cameras! That ends the Ashes and we thank you for joining us for the coverage. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed covering these games for you. Do keep us company for we have plenty of cricket coming up. The U-19 World Cup, the BBL, India's ODI series against South Africa - you name it. We look forward to your company for all this and more. Take care and goodbye for now!
Travis Head is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH AND PLAYER OF THE SERIES! Travis Head says that he is happy to have an impact and says that his century in this Test match is a bit special because the conditions were just a bit more challenging. He adds that he has worked a lot on his game in the past couple of years and there were always batters ahead of him so he had to put on a good show. Mentions that all the players in the team are performing really well and says that there's competition for every single place in the side. He ends by saying that these are challenging times and thanks the English team for coming out here to play,
Pat Cummins, the winning Australian captain, says that this is what dreams are made off and to win the series 4-0 is a great feeling. Adds that he is really happy as captain with the bowling but jokes that Lyon may not agree with his decisions in this Test. Praises Green for how he has played throughout the series with both the bat and the ball. Also praises Boland for the way he has bowled. Mentions that he is excited about their series overseas as it would provide different challenges. To finish things off, he thanks the ECB, CA and the English players for touring under tough global conditions, and also the general public for their support.
Joe Root, the English skipper, says that it has been a frustrating and tough tour and they just haven't been able to put on consistent performances throughout a match. He adds that this is a challenge they faced and they need to go home and reflect on this and it won't be long before they play Test cricket again. Mentions that they were completed outplayed in all departments of the game and acknowledges that their opponents were superior. He then gives credit to his bowlers as well and hails Mark Wood for his sensational work throughout the series. He ends by congratulating the Australian skipper and his team for the series win.
Right then. Plenty of interviews coming up in the presentation. Stick around.
England had to chase down 271 runs to win this game. It looked unlikely given how they have batted so far but the opening pair of Zak Crawley and Rory Burns did a really good job in the second session of Day 3. They put on 68 runs together but the wicket of Burns just before Tea was all that Australia needed to make inroads in the English batting. A disappointing finish for England. They played well in patches but lacked the killer instinct to finish things off. Mark Wood was probably their standout player. Never gave up, never got tired, always gave it his all. Take a bow, lad!
England though did not give up and had a brilliant outing with the ball in the second innings. Mark Wood led from the front with a career-best 6-wicket haul and Stuart Broad took 3. The Australian batters had a tough time as Mark Wood attacked them with plenty of short ones. Still, the contributions by Cameron Green and Alex Carey lower down in the order got them to 155 with a total lead of 270.
England had a really tough first innings with the bat. Their top order faltered once again and it was some handy batting from the lower order that somehow got them to 188. The Aussies did not need Nathan Lyon to bowl as the pacers did the job with ease. Pat Cummins led the attack with 4 wickets and was well supported by Mitchell Starc's 3 wickets.
Earlier in the Test, England started really well on Day 1 with 3 early wickets but the Aussies recovered well. Led by a brilliant ton by Travis Head and a fifty by Cameron Green, they went onto score 303 runs in the first innings. The English bowlers bowled decently with everyone with the exception of Joe Root taking wickets.
But the bowling of Cameron Green changed things completely. He got the wicket of Rory Burns right at the stroke of Tea and then after the break, he took 2 more to put them in big trouble. The stand between Joe Root and Ben Stokes was probably the last hope for England and once that was broken, they had no answers to some brilliant and consistent bowling from the Aussies. The pacers ruled the roost as Nathan Lyon did not get to bowl a single over in the game. England lost 10 wickets for just 56 runs and that tells you the entire story.
The target for England was quite big but they had plenty of time to chase it down. It was quite certain that there would be a result in the game given how much time there was. But for a change, the English openers put on a brilliant stand at the top. They batted with intent and got boundaries when the bowlers erred. Things were looking great for them in the second session and it looked like they could potentially win this game.
IT IS 4-0! What a show by Australia! They have dominated the entire series and this game was no different. When the English bowlers put them under pressure, they punched back. Their pacers had the batters on the feet through the series and were relentless. England had a very tough tour. After being outplayed in the first three Tests, they put on a great fight in Sydney to draw the game. They played really well in this Test too and had a really good chance to win this game. But they lost their plot in one session. Yes, in one session. The wheels came off the rails in the post-Tea session here and they crumbled under pressure. Take nothing away from the Aussies though as they will keep the Ashes Urn and there will be a party for sure!

A short ball, outside off and Wood shuffles across looking to hook it away. The ball hurries onto him and he ends up getting an inside edge back onto the stumps and that's just been the story of this series. The English team just throwing in the towel way too early.

He doesn't move his feet and is caught on the crease as he flicks it uppishly and straight into the hands of the skipper, Pat Cummins at mid on. It's all but over now for the visitors.

Scott Boland To Joe Root OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Oh, boy. Speechless. Simply speechless. Root has a wry smile on his face and to be honest, there is nothing else he can do. Boland though is over the moon and he can do no wrong in the series. That is a really unfortunate way to get out. Lands on a length, on off and simply does not rise up! It shoots low and goes under the bat as Root is in the crease to block it. It goes onto hit the off pole and Root walks back. Things could get over soon now.

Scott Boland To Joe Root
Play and a miss! Back of a length, outside off. Root goes for the punch but misses.
DRINKS! Joe Root has an issue with his bat as it has cracked a bit and calls for a change. The umpires take this opportunity to call for a Drinks break. It has certainly been enthralling action in this final session so far and England are just about hanging on in this match. A wicket or two in the next 15 mins or so and the hosts will be licking their lips. Joe Root holds the key here for the visitors but does need support from the other end as well.

Cameron Green To Zak Crawley OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Cameron Green is turning this match on its head all by himself! Green pitches this one up, around off and this one seems to be going on with the angle but just straightens a bit, enough to get the knick. Zak Crawley is drawn forward and he plays for the line but is undone by the late movement. The ball goes off the outside edge and Alex Carey dives to his right to take a sharp catch. Crawley was looking so good out there and now the visitors are certainly under pressure with two new batters out in the middle.

Cameron Green To Dawid Malan OUT!
OUT! Chopped on! Cameron Green does get the wicket of Dawid Malan and he is elated. Malan was troubled by the short ball and that extra zip that Green is getting off the surface. This is on a good length, close to off stump and just nips back in ever so slightly. Dawid Malan is indecisive and has a late poke at it. His feet don't move and the inside edge is found. The ball goes back onto hit the off stump. Is this the opening the hosts were looking for?

We are back for the final session here on Day 3. Zak Crawley is joined by Dawid Malan, who will be on strike. Cameron Green is ready to steam in and complete his unfinished over.
... Day 3, Session 3 ...
Well then, from the looks of the session that has gone by, Australia seemed to have let the match slip from the palm of their hands. But, Cameron Green has certainly brought them back into the match with that very late scalp. They haven't bowled poorly and have been a bit unlucky but the English openers, for once showed great positive intent to keep the Aussie pacers at bay. The hosts still have more than 200 runs to play with and if they repeat what the English quicks did in the last session on Day 2, then they can break the English hearts yet again. It is all about which team wants it more. Do the visitors have it in them to fight till the end and see the match through? Or will the Aussies get their mojo back and be all over the visitors in the final session? We'll find out soon. Stay tuned for an exhilarating session coming up at 2:30 pm IST (9 am GMT).
Well then, no one expected this but it has happened. Finally, a session which truly belonged to the visitors, well at least till the last delivery but still, they have given themselves the best possible opportunity to win this Test match. The English pacers cleaned up the Australian tail after the Dinner break and for a change, their openers have looked really good out in the middle. Well, they did until Rory Burns fell at the stroke of Tea and that has slightly altered this match. Still, a long way to go as they require 203 more runs and when one wicket falls down, a team can get lose further wickets in quick succession. The job for the English batters is to get through the final session without losing more than a couple of wickets, max. They can then have a bat in the sunshine tomorrow afternoon and push for victory.

Cameron Green To Rory Burns OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Oh, dear. Oh, dear dear. What has happened there? A session that was dominated by England ends with their opening stand broken! Length ball, just outside off. This comes in with the angle and gets quite close to the off pole. Now, Burns decides to leave it a bit too late and that proves to be his undoing. The ball takes the bottom part of the bat and goes onto hit the stumps! A much-needed wicket for Australia and that is Tea on Day 3!

Full, outside off and Burns leans in to punch it towards covers.
A delayed reaction from Alex Carey behind the stumps but Pat Cummins does go for the review. There is a huge noise and the hosts have to go for the review, hoping to break this opening stand. This might be a huge review in the context of the match. There is nothing on Hotspot and on the UltraEdge there is a tiny little spike but that looks to be after the ball went past the bat. The third umpire looks at it from the front again and decides that there's nothing conclusive. The original decision stands.

NOT OUT! What was that noise then? There was a noise for sure but there doesn't seem to any bat on it! Length ball, around off. Burns looks to block but the ball goes past the bat and goes to the keeper. Warner goes up and so does Green. Carey puts in delayed appeal too but the umpire is unmoved. Cummins moves forward and decides to review this one. Now, the replays roll in. First is Hotspot and there is nothing on it. Now, the UltragEdge is a bit interesting. There is a spike but the front-on angle is cropped and the umpire cannot see if there is a deflection to correlate with the UltraEdge spike. The TV umpire goes back to the front-on vision and that shows no clear deflection. He decides that there is no conclusive evidence and the onfield decision stays.

Right on the buzzer, Pat Cummins does go for the review for an LBW decision. Well, it looks to be going well over the stumps and down the leg side as well. UltraEdge confirms that there's no bat on it but Ball Tracker shows that it is very close. In fact, the ball was clipping the top of leg stump but the onfield decision will stay. Australia though don't lose the review which might come in handy later on.

Cummins runs in towards the pitch and has a word with his players. One of the players says that height should not be an issue and Cummins takes the review with a second left on the clock. The replays roll in. No bat on that and Ball Tracker has the ball clipping the leg stump with umpire's call! A lucky break for England. Had that been given out on field, the review would not have saved Zak Crawley!

Nicely bowled! A length ball, angled into off and just nibbling away off the pitch. Crawley gets beaten past the outside edge as the ball keeps a bit low as well.

Pat Cummins To Zak Crawley
FOUR! Lovely timing from Zak Crawley. Full and angling into middle and leg. Crawley plays an exquisite on drive and picks up a boundary down to the long on fence.
Burns seems to have made an adjustment to his trigger movement as noted by one of the commentators on air. His front foot isn't moving as far across as it was before so he is not really losing his balance. The fourth ball of the previous over was the same delivery that he got in the first Test in Brisbane but this time, he didn't get too far across and neither did Starc get the ball to swing.

Sharp work! Cummins hits the length hard and bowls it on off. Crawley taps it straight to Travis Head at short leg, who keeps Crawley on his toes.

Mitchell Starc To Rory Burns
Anxious moment out there in the middle and the last thing the visitors need is another run out. Back of a length, Burns is on the back foot and gets a bottom edge back onto the deck. Crawley looks for the single but Burns doesn't even know where the ball is. Crawley retreats in time.

That would have to be swinging in a mile to get the LBW decision. An in-dipper this time from Cummins. This one pitches well outside off and Crawley just strides out but offers no shot. The ball hits the pads but the umpire isn't interested.

FOUR! Edged and just past third slip! A lovely delivery angled into middle and straightening away after pitching. Crawley gets squared up and the outside edge is found. The ball flies past Usman Khawaja's dive at third slip and races away into the fence.

This is angled at the pads and swinging away. Burns looks to play it square but again looks to be falling over and gets hit on the pads. An appeal but not a big appeal.

Zak Crawley is off the mark. Over middle, Crawley wrists it towards fine leg for a single. A big cheer from the crowd as Boland collects the ball. Familiar scenes now.

Maybe just nipping back in a bit too much. A length ball, on middle and shaping back in. Crawley looks to punch it back but gets an inside edge onto the pads and that's what saved him.

Mitchell Starc To Zak Crawley
FOUR LEG BYES! Just hasn't got his rhythm right yet, Mitchell Starc. On the pads again and Zak Crawley goes for the flick. The ball goes off the pads and races away into the fine leg fence. So, 9 off the first over. A positive start for the visitors.

FOUR! Edgy boundary but Rory Burns is up and running. Starc angles this one in at off stump and the ball straightens after pitching. Burns gets squared up but luckily for him, the outside edge drops short and goes between third slip and gully for a boundary. He is off the pair. The change of hair has worked!
