Ashes triumph will help Australia put ball-tampering scandal behind them: McGrath

Australia celebrate as one as the Ashes is retained

Former England pacer Steve Harmison feels Australia's batting mainstay Steve Smith will always be remembered as a "cheat" for the infamous Cape Town ball-tampering scandal, irrespective of his incredible feats.

An unchanged team was named by England Cricket board for the Test at the Oval.

Australia has retained the urn with one Test still to play.

Holders Australia alternatively would wish to register their first away Ashes collection win in 18 years because the final time they lifted the Ashes trophy in England was approach again in 2001. While Australia may have retained the Ashes with Warner taking a few stunners on the field, he has had a bit of a horror tour with the bat.

Roy, who made his test debut in July, has scored 110 runs in eight innings with a top score of 28.

That England took the game into the final hour of Sunday's last day before being dismissed for 197, having been none for two after Cummins took two wickets in two balls, said much about their resolve.

A major cause of concern for England is the condition of their star all-rounder Ben Stokes who didn't bowl in Australia's second innings at Old Trafford following a shoulder injury sustained during his 11th over in the tourists' first innings.

Ben Stokes said after the third Test that his match-winning heroics at Headingley would mean nothing if England failed at Old Trafford in the fourth Test.

"He's in the side as a bowler and he didn't look threatening", Willis added. Tim Paine's men won the match by 185 runs to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

"I think they (Australia) should have had a bigger lead, not just on the back of Steve Smith", Ponting, one of the best batsmen of his generation, told Sky Sports.

"When you're known as a cheat - and he is, I'm not going to sugar-coat it, the three guys cheated - that's on your CV".
