Australia retain Ashes with fourth test victory

Smith makes up for lost time as extraordinary Ashes series reaches new heights

The wicket of Stokes was always going to be a big one for Australia and seeing the all-rounder depart so early was a massive blow for England, with Cummins the man to achieve what Australia failed to do at Headingley.

Australia finally dismissed them for 197 at 6.15pm, with a 185-run win giving them an unassailable 2-1 lead that means they will retain the urn regardless of events at The Oval next week.

Joe Root admitted he was "bitterly disappointed" after England's hopes of profitable again the Ashes have been ended by Australia at Previous Trafford.

All of Australia´s three-man pace attack were in the wickets, Josh Hazlewood leading the way with 4-57. We saw that in the last Test match.

It was not be, Leach unpicked by part-time leg-spinner Marnus Labuschagne in a bold gambit and Overton trapped in front by Hazlewood in the 92nd over.

"The boys were getting a bit exhausted out there but at the start of the day we thought we would have our eight chances and it proved to be the way". Even loads of turn and bounce couldn't help him get a wicket in Manchester.

Rory Burns and Root had shared a partnership of 141 while making 81 and 71 respectively in England's first-innings 301, but on Saturday they were both out for nought in the first over of England's chase.

Denly was fortunate to see a loose drive off left-arm quick Mitchell Starc fly over the slips for four and he nearly gave his wicket away when, despite England's desperate position, he lofted a sweep off Nathan Lyon's off-spin which just dropped short of deep midwicket. I found when I first went out to the middle, when you bowl a good length, there was enough up and down and sideways movement. Eventually, Cummins got rewards for his efforts when one of the incoming deliveries sneaked through Roy's defence and knocked down the off-stump.

As he departed, for a battling 31, Stokes took his place to a predictable hero's welcome. - Cummins has got Buttler out four times in this series.

While Steve Smith has scored runs at will in this series, other batsmen barring Marnus Labuschagne have faced a hard time facing the likes of Stuart Broad and Jofra Archer.

Denly restarted on 48 and, though the team total was an irrelevance, a half-century was an important personal milestone.

Starc was at the end of his run up when he was hooked for Cummins.

Five things we learned from day four at Old Trafford. Jonny Bairstow was next up, joining Buttler for little more than an hour before Starc returned after a restorative drinks break.

Leach and Butler added 18 runs for the final wicket.

"For us it's pretty clear what we need to do ... quicks hit the good length, Gaza (Nathan Lyon) hit the rough as much as possible and when he bowls to left handers just pitch it on the stumps and try and hit the stumps as much as possible and bring LBW and caught behind the wicket into play". We wish to win the Ashes Three-1'.

He delivered a withering six-over spell when given the new ball, bowling Bairstow before getting an edge from Stokes which no-one at Headingley could manage.
