Australia won the match against England in the second innings. Some one had to do something 'magical' to chase down the target of almost 100 touches in the last Ashes. Smith was on the Australian team; As Smith has played in this series, it is not wrong to expect anything from him! But Smith couldn't do that much anymore. He returned to the innings after scoring 25 off 9 balls. Smith was bowled out for the first time in this series.

The only Wade has fought for Australia. He also got a century (1). In the end, Wade's century, however, has failed. Ajira lost the match by a big 5 runs. However, the win has only kept the series 2-2 in the series. Australia have won the Ashes in the previous match.

Australia chased down the target for a 5-run target. Earlier on the fourth day, the Englishmen started with 4 runs for 5 wickets. Archer and Leach returned to the scoreboard by adding 5 runs on Sunday. The Australian batting lineup fell to Broad's cannon at the start of the chase. Broad returned Harris at the top of the team's 5-run lead. Then Warner, again at the head of the 27-run Broad, returned to the pavilion. Warner was Broad's seventh victim in the series.

Then the Australian wicket fell at regular intervals. Ajira fell in doubt when he lost 5 wickets for 5 runs. Because at that time Labushen and Smith, the two emblems of Australia, returned. Then Wade's century only increased the length of the match.

Broad and Leach took three wickets for the Englishmen in the second innings. Joe Root took the remaining two wickets. England's Joffra Archer has been the matchmaker.
