He was endearingly proud of his maiden century in his post-play interview â and why not. Great news for Graeme Swann, and for Simon Kerrigan: Shane Watson has gone. That top six doesn't look too hot. I will head to cloud nine to eat the humblest pie if England do win. WIth Broad and Swann, you would pretty much bat to nine even if you play Tremlett.". You could argue us four-bowler types need to free our mind and accept that a lower order of Prior, Bresnan, Broad, Swann, Anderson, Finn is stronger than the successful 2005 lower order (Flintoff, Jones, Giles, Hoggard, Harmison, Jones). It seems Australia will bat to tea - ten more minutes - and then maybe declare. He waved three fingers, threw the ball into the gutter and walked off breezily, high on self-satisfaction. Nathan Lyon â Those who saw him in India knew he could get dip and turn and had control of his variations â quite why Darren Lehmann couldn't, and preferred Ashton Agar, might rank with England's selection of Darren Pattinson in the more eccentric choices in Test history. Root surivves a biggish shout for LBW from Harris; again it looked too high. Trott and Cook work him for consecutive threes to keep England pretty close to the required rate. Today they lift the Ashes. It's pretty tempting to keep him out of the attack while Watson is at the crease. He is hunting glory as only he can. That was far too good for Ryan Harris, who was promoted up the order. Every Pietersen run is being greeted by lusty cheers. Two balls later he works a nice boundary through midwicket. The substitute Jason Roy's throw missed the stumps. He lured Alastair Cook into another prod outside off-stump first time round and stopped KP from winning the match second time round. England and Australia wait anxiously for the ultimate cricketing clash of the year. Now here's a thought Imagine if Australia had been sent 227 from 44 overs in the final Ashes Test of 2005. 23rd Aug 2013 4:25pm | By Editor.

OVER 136: ENG 347/7 (Prior 34* Swann 23*) Prior comes down the track to chip Lyon wristily for three, and then Swann hammers a slog sweep for four. They can't make the law up as they go along. Swann is gated by a decent delivery from around the wicket. FOW 206/5. Unlike contemporary Philip Hughes, he has always looked more likely to score runs consistently and, now the head is still at the point of contact, he's beginning to use his dead fish eye to smack the ball out of the middle of the bat. Instead he makes roomt to flash Lyon between extra cover and mid-off for four. KP gets another boundary, mangling a full toss wide of the diving long on for four. Starc's response is an excellent slower ball which pops from the pitch to take the edge before landing short of slip. 2013 Ashes series: 5th Test, Day 5 (2013) 1 of 1 Shane Watson and Steve Smith in The Ashes (1930). England need 88 from 16 overs. He has 34 from just 19 balls. It was a routine wicket, with Anderson edging a big drive at Faulkner. Looked much more fluent in the second innings, two decent knocks.

OVER 12: ENG 53/1 (Cook 20* Trott 21*) That's a nice stroke from Trott, a crisp clip for four off Siddle. Because you can't keep a man with his gifts at bay for long, KP's violent assault in the second innings showed what he can do. James Faulkner â With much talk about the impact of the Big Bash on Australian batting, he came to the crease twice and played two Twenty20 style innings â which was the unselfish thing to do, especially on debut. Root smiles cheekily. 1945 The party has well and truly started now. All told, it's probably a good time for both parties to have a couple of months apart before this slightly unfathomable discord - which is much greater than the sum of its parts, and as such all the more confusing - becomes serious. Lunch: England 350/7 (trail by 142) We've gone from George Graham's England on Friday to Kevin Keegan's England this morning: 21 overs, 103 runs, three wickets.

Mitchell Starc is the new batsman. OVER 118: ENG 251/4 (Bell 29* Woakes 19*) Bell needs 71 runs to become the first man to make four centuries in an Ashes series since Peter Such Sir Donald Bradman in 1930. Oogatz fair. Not that this invalidates the bitching and moaning; quite the contrary. Help: The Ashes 2013 results on Scoreboard.com. With a little more help at the other end, he might have ended up with more than his five wickets, but would probably have settled for that after some lacklustre performances since his huge effort at Trent Bridge. Let's at least try to enjoy it. The one constant was that at least three England players had great matches every time. But, as is often the case with a bowler short of express pace who does not make the ball swing or seam consistently, his mid-80mph bowling merely hastened the impact of the ball on to the middle of the bat. That's a lovely moment of individual success for a consummate team man, who might have thought his Test career was over a few months ago. Australia have declared So England need 227 from 44 overs. Should Flower go? Maybe you just have a pre-series shootout between Bairstow and Taylor, or whoever they pick. Chris Rogers â Another two hours at the crease, with less fluency than at Chester-le-Street, but he was hardly alone in that. Even Sir Ian Botham thinks England shouldn't necessarily go for it from the first ball. 1015 Some breakfast reading. OVER 15: AUS 68-4 (Clarke 5* Smith 1*) The lead is 183, with 50 overs remaining. England go at 2 an over on day 3 and 5 an over today when it doesn't matter <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=timidandterrified" target="_blank">#timidandterrified</a></noframe> OVER 141: ENG 368/9 (Swann 26* Kerrigan 0*) Simon Kerrigan is cheered to the wicket and cheered again when he manages to defend his first ball. ), and poor teams or lacking in confidence teams will find a way to lose. "Anderson and Clarke going at each other hammer and tongs." "As an old Lancashire and England supporter, I've been giving some thought as to who should be man of the series. Bell walked across his stumps to Faulkner, who was bowling around the wicket, and got a thin tickle down the leg side.

I think he should tour but he would need to score some decent runs before the first Test to get in my XI. OVER 17: ENG 73/1 (Cook 32* Trott 29*) Cook works two through midwicket. OVER 24: ENG 105/2 (Trott 42* Pietersen 17*) Australia are in a bit of trouble here. Fair? ", "Glad youâve come round to my way of thinking, Rob. All that said, there is the slightest chance we might see something epic in the next three hours. OVER 10: ENG 43/1 (Cook 16* Trott 15*) Trott hooks Siddle in the air but well wide of leg gully for four. He smashed Ryan Harris's first ball towards long on, where David Warner took a fine and possibly match-saving running catch. The ball popped off a length at Warner, who pushed it in the air back whence it came. If England win this game, this innings will be a neat little brother to his 158 on this ground in 2005. Woakes never got his eye back in this morning, and after a few false strokes he has gone. Three from the over. Match has reached at a very interesting stage. This Ashes series were their, and his, reward. <noframe>Twitter: Malcolm Conn - <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=cricket" target="_blank">#cricket</a> <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=ashes" target="_blank">#ashes</a> What a joke. Ashes 2013: England v Australia 5th Test â LIVE! With a bit of luck, he will be a real handful and will be up in the 300 club by the end of his next home Ashes. (On standby with the Performance Squad, among others: Compton, Woakes, Davies, Rankin, Kerrigan.). Is it enough to retain his place for the return series when, back home, his steadying hand on the tiller may not be so necessary? OVER 21: AUS 91-6 (lead by 206; Clarke 18* Starc 3*) Starc misses a couple of haymakers at short deliveries from Broad and then survives a big run-out chance. Prior continues to play his strokes, clipping two through midwicket - that means England have sucked the last bit of life out of the match avoided the follow-on - and then slashing an uppercut over the cordon for four. At the risk of contradicting absolutely everything I've said so far today, this might just be on: Trott flicks a lovely boundary up and over square leg before crunching three more over the two short midwickets. Just three from that over. OVER 27: ENG 124/2 (target 227 from 44 overs; Trott 46* Pietersen 32*) Trott works Lyon nicely between mid on and midwicket for two. Likeliest result a draw, probably, but if there is a winner Iâd say it will be England.". A maiden, the 35th of the innings. OVER 20: ENG 86/2 (Trott 40* Pietersen 0*) A wicket maiden for James Faulkner, just the order-restorer Australia needed. Oh well, it's not like a Test match can give me a bunch of fives or ostracise me for patronising it. OVER 121: ENG 267/4 (Bell 40* Woakes 23*) In reference to Adam Ford's email below, can you think of any Test matches in which an entire XI has fired? OVER 135: ENG 329/7 (Prior 30* Swann 10*) Swann, turned round, edges his first ball through the slips for four and clouts his second over midwicket for two. ... 5th Test: Match drawn, The Oval. It was fairly straightforward by keeper's standards, low to his left, and had he taken it he would have equalled Rod Marsh's record for most dismissals in a Test series. They need 53 from the last eight. He ended the series having biffed 126 handy runs at almost a run a ball; those runs may be more crucial in the return series. Jonathan Trott â Like Alastair Cook, he's enduring a curious summer. <noframe>Twitter: Michael Vaughan - England haven't past 400 this summer once yet will have won 5 in 7 Test Matches..Tells me they have a very very good bowling unit.. <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=Ashes" target="_blank">#Ashes</a></noframe> Amid all the hitting and giggling, Faulkner has picked up three wickets, and he almost adds a fourth when Swann smears all around an excellent slower ball. OVER 37: ENG 180/4 (target 227 from 44 overs; Bell 4* Woakes 6*) This is apparently the highest-scoring final day in Test history, overtaking Australia's famous chase at Headingley in 1948. It formed part of the 2013 Australian tour of England, which also included the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy, five One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals.. Mitchell Starc is going to open the bowling. <noframe>Twitter: Damien Martyn - Outstanding Australia <a href="http://www.twitter.com/MClarke23" target="_blank">@MClarke23</a> <a href="http://www.twitter.com/darren_lehmann" target="_blank">@darren_lehmann</a> positive thoughtful cricket moving the game forward .. That takes the lead to 226, and there are 44 overs remaining. It was a stumping chance, technically, but a nigh-on impossible one. "There's plenty of chat out there again," says Mike Atherton. BAD LIGHT STOPS PLAY. For England to go for it Clarke would have to set something pretty generous: 100 in 50 overs, something like that. Australia lead by 201. There may be much to be said for taking a more aggressive approach, but playing against type isn't easy â especially with plenty else to think about â and the strain may have shown in his missing a good one to be bowled (again) in the first dig. The tour leaves in October he has to be shown fit by late September at the latest - with a back stress fracture I have big doubts about this. Alastair Cook â I think the word is "conflicted". That said, I think they have done well so far; they have played with controlled aggression and if they get to, say, 100/1 from 20 overs, they could then consider really going for it. The game is heading for a draw, but it's doing so with a spring in its step and a twinkle in its eye. He has 14 from seven balls. It's reasonable, but there was so much overnight rain that we will not start on time. But it's clever PR nonetheless, especially in view of what has happened over the last few days. If England do somehow win this, they will at a stroke obliterate all the negativity of the last few days. With runs coming apace at the other end, he had to block his and did so to good effect. He is still moving around at the crease, but, on an Oval pitch about as ill-suited to his style as he could find, he struggled to reach the fluency he had shown in cameos in previous Tests. OVER 134: ENG 315/6 (Prior 30* Broad 9*) Nathan Lyon comes into the attack, replacing Peter Siddle, and beats Broad with a beauty. At 24, he showed the potential to play the role of fourth seamer, but how often will England want that balance to their side? It's an extremely rare occurrence. But Prior was standing back and Starc was able to get back. He is not exactly oozing permanence but this is surely the best for him to try to get back into form. There is another leg-side delivery later in the over; Aleem Dar doesn't call wide but I think he has told Watson that's enough. Graeme Swann â He snared a couple of lefties at the top and bottom of the order, but lacked a little of the fizzing snap that characterises both his bowling and his personality when in peak form. <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=ashes" target="_blank">#ashes</a><a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=rise" target="_blank">#rise</a></noframe> 1005 What would be your composite XI from this series? <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=Ashes" target="_blank">#Ashes</a></noframe> OVER 16: ENG 63/1 (Cook 25* Trott 26*) It's like the middle overs of an ODI, with England milking the slow bowlers for three or four an over. We think that's the end of the match. Could they be suckered into an unrealistic chase? He looks in the mood to be the hero. By Paul Newman for the Daily Mail. Prior walks across his stumps to hustle Faulkner to the fine-leg boundary. If Clarke was prepared to lose to win he would have declared five overs ago. Oh my goodness. Stuart Broad â As so often this series, his first innings figures belied his hostility and craft with the ball, offset a little by cheap second-innings scalps. A few of the England players are chatting to Sky's Ian Ward. Kerrigan then gloves a nasty short ball for his first run in Test cricket, prompting one of the bigger cheers of the match. Strictly speaking, the players should almost certainly go off in accordance with the laws. Australia lead by 159. Anyway, I've just been round Felbrigg Hall National Trust and spotted this chap on the wall. This is a nightmare for the umpires. See you in half an hour for the afternoon session. I like their squad, though there is an obvious issue at No6. Records includes the following current or recent matches: England v Australia at The Oval, 5th Test, Aug 21-25, 2013 [Test # 2094]England v Australia at Chester-le-Street, 4th Test, Aug 9-12, 2013 [Test # 2093]England v Australia at Manchester, 3rd Test, Aug 1-5, 2013 [Test # 2092] 1000 Good morning. (It's almost impossible, as we said earlier, to function as a collective in one match.). People Shane Watson, Steve Smith "I would not want to be umpire," says Nasser. OVER 139: ENG 363/8 (Swann 25* Anderson 0*) That was the last ball of the over. "In this situation there must be some comon sense." What do the umpires do? Haddin plunged to his left to take a wonderful one-handed catch just above the turf. How negative is this from England?? Another wicket for Ryan Harris, his 22nd of the series. Ryan Harris has left the field through injury, with Shane Watson taking over with the ball. England need 82 from 84 balls. Utterly absurd.</noframe> OVER 39: ENG 194/4 (need 33 from 30 balls; Bell 12* Woakes 11*) The light is fading a little, according to Nasser Hussain on Sky. This is outrageous stuff from Pietersen. Ballance or Carberry would be added to my squad as an extra bat. Life, as John Lennon didn't quite say, is what happens while you're busy collecting regrets. OVER 143: ENG 377/9 (Swann 34* Kerrigan 1*) Kerrigan is almost bowled in strange circumstances. Prior thought it was out; the rest weren't so sure. You need balls to be spinner and Lyon has shown plenty in taking the humiliation of Trent Bridge and Lord's in his stride and getting on with the game once the ball was in his hand. OVER 4: ENG 18/0 (Cook 10* Root 7*) All cricket instinct tells you England can't win this. The crowd are booing but England will get over it pretty quickly. "Right, as itâs midnight down here, Iâm off to bed. Also brings to the party a left-armed quickie which could be extremely useful in Oz conditions.". And those lower-order runs are often so important to England, as we saw at Durham in the last Test. He played forward defensively and held the pose, unaware that the ball was rolling back towards the stumps. England need just 33 in just five overs. There's no shame in that. He hit the ball hard in both knocks and showed clarity of thought in the cauldron of the second-innings chase. He took a tremendously difficult catch to dismiss Shane Watson and was good in the field â not bad for a senior statesman on a wonky knee. They haven't a solitary clue where they should bowl to him, and the only way they can save this game is by dismissing him quicksmart. This has been a highliy entertaining morning, with 61 runs in 15 overs. The 2013 series was the first of two back-to-back Ashes series. The Ashes 2013 had begun on 10th July 2013 to be concluded on 25th August. This back-to-back Ashesathon is simmering beautifully now. It's highly unlikely, of course, but he might just want to claim a bit more of the moral high ground - and also to play on the burgeoning enmity between the sides and the criticism England have had for being negative. It's a good idea to sing it now because by this evening I reckon half of them will struggle to comply with the chant's commandment. Two from his first over. He will go back to Sussex now and prepare for Brisbane in November. England need 79 from 78 balls. And in 44 overs instead of 50? The trouble with Bairstow is that he has a clear technical problem, and those tend to get found out at the highest level. Smith screwed the shot and it was an easy catch for Swann. Watson spears his third delivery down the leg side; a wide in one-day cricket but not necessarily in Tests - it depends whether he umpire thinks it's a deliberately negative tactic. This is one-day cricket now, and that's Faulkner's area of expertise. The weather looks fine at the moment, although if Australia drag it out you never know what might happen. The chaps on Sky have just informed us that only three sides in Test history have won chasing over 200 at more than five an over - and only one of those three was against the clock, when the fielding side could bowl wide and put as many men as they liked on the boundary. No big shots, just good placement and lung-busting ones and twos. Ashes 2013: Fifth Test, day three in pictures 177398006.jpg. Ten of his summer's 14 innings have terminated in the No Man's Land between 23 and 76. Later in the over he plays another lovely flick through square leg for four. Scoreboard.com provides The Ashes results, standings, and match details with additional information. Go home, there's nothing to see here. That's fair enough; the phony war for the next Ashes has already started. Ryan Harris â Another magnificent exhibition of fast bowling from the British passport holder, who charges in, gets in a full shoulder turn and snaps the wrist to pitch the ball on the proverbial sixpence. Root is young and talented enough to work it out. OVER 10: AUS 40/1 (Watson 25* Faulkner 2*) Graeme Swann comes on, conceding four from his first over. Shane Warne says Michael Clarke has been "brave" today. Just three runs from Harris's over, and that vital wicket. I'm really not sure this support will help him. Haddin goes for a golden duck. Jimmy Anderson: "I don't think we'll be leaving the dressing-room for quite some time. Later in the over he flogs a disdainful boundary down the ground. That was an awesome stroke, played on the walk from outside off stump. The 2013 Ashes series was a series of Test cricket matches contested between England and Australia for the Ashes. He was rightly sent back by Prior and would have been well short with a direct hit from cover. The next ball goes for four as well, although this time it's a bouncer that hist Swann on the shoulder and flew away to the fine-leg boundary. OVER 20: AUS 89-6 (Clarke 17* Starc 2*) Three from Swann's over. We are now at the stage where England should win this match, a quite absurd scenario given the state of play this morning. 1001 The weather. What will they be like when all 11 fire? It's almost hard to comprehend quite how good a series he has had. OVER 12: AUS 49/2 (Faulkner 5* Haddin 0*) The new batsman is Brad Haddin. OVER 123: ENG 273/5 (Bell 41* Prior 3*) I wonder how quickly Michael Clarke will turn to Peter Siddle, who has the wood on Matt Prior. Watson, the pinch-hitter, gets off the mark from his 12th delivery with a hack to leg. Bell is surprised by a short one from Faulkner and lifts it high in the air behind square on the leg side. (Legal disclaimer: telegraph.co.uk is not responsible for any mortgages wagered on such a ridiculous bet.). OVER 120: ENG 263/4 (Bell 36* Woakes 23*) Bell drives Harris sweetly through mid-off for his first boundary of the day. That was a breezy, enjoyable knock from Prior: 47 from 56, with a nice hint of arrogance. OVER 9: ENG 39/1 (Cook 16* Trott 11*) Here comes Nathan Lyon. And now he does have his fourth! OVER 3: AUS 4/0 (Warner 4* Watson 0*) Australia have half their team padded up, including Smith, Faulkner and Haddin. Talking of hammer, Starc smashes the final ball of the session for four. That's Simon Kerrgan's pulse rate right now. He hasn't batted well but he's there to keep wicket, which isn't the most glamorous of jobs, and I have to go a long way back to recall anything as good to watch." He looks a lot like Ryan Harris through his delivery stride, but nags rather than dazzles batsmen and, as such, is an ideal foil. They're an easy team to like when they play like these, and Swann moves to 10 from three balls with a storming extra-cover drive. This is getting slightly strange; surely Australia don't seriously think they can win this? Pietersen, on the run, chips a couple over midwicket. Trott crunches Lyon sweetly through the covers for three, and then Cook cuts four to make it ten from the over! I think Bres could become a bowling all-rounder as Boycott kept on saying the other day. Thatâs the beauty of Ashes. OVER 131: ENG 308/6 (Prior 29* Broad 5*) Broad gets off the mark with a lovely back-foot drive for four off Faulkner. Now, I may be going doolally, but I think England might win this game. There were two noises, but they were pad and thigh pad. Seems they haven't forgotten how to lose.</noframe> OVER 18: ENG 85/1 (Cook 33* Trott 40*) James Faulkner replaces Michael Clarke. You can ignore the entry for Over 10. OVER 13: AUS 52/3 (Faulkner 7* Clarke 1*) Michael Clarke comes in at No5. Actually, I think they have already: they are all embracing on the balcony. â¢ Shane Warne on why England have lost the fear factor.â¢ Scyld Berry's England report card.â¢ Steve James' end-of-series awards.â¢ Scyld Berry reflects on a slightly disappointing series.â¢ Is Andy Flower going to stand down in the winter? I think since 2011 England's record is something like W11 L7. There's also a reason the England squad are unhappy about the whole thing, reduced to posting passive-aggressive tweets that only serve to highlight the weirdness of the situation. OVER 138: ENG 354/7 (Prior 39* Swann 24*) Prior pushes the first ball of the session, from Siddle, down the ground for four, aided by a slightly weary piece of fielding from Harris at mid-on. I really hope he gets a hundred today. Stuart Broad is one wicket away from the most unexpected five-for. He tried to steer Broad to third man and failed, toe-ending it straight through to Prior. Go for it until, say, five wickets down, then shut up shop. That was a delightful piece of athleticism. Going to need tough players in Oz and the player that fits the bill as a fast-bowling all rounder at no 8 is Dave Willey. That's a surprise: you thought they might promote Prior or even Swann. In the future, between pangs of conscience over that haircut, those red trousers and those stolen penny sweets, thousands of cricket fans in this country will regret their attitude in the summer of 2013, when England won the Ashes 3-0 and all we did was bitch and moan. Ashes 2013: England win series 3-0 after bad light ends Oval Test. He's playing a perfect supporting role to Pietersen at the moment; and when he takes a single to rotate the strike, Pietersen slaps a short ball emphatically through cover point for four. If I were Clarke I would certainly give England another bat this evening, maybe 20 overs, so that Harris and Siddle can try to put more hurt on Cook, Root and Trott. In the long run, those 32 missing runs may help him, as he still has some technical issues to work out and can expect another forensic examination in the winter from the magnificent Ryan Harris. 400 for the ultimate cricketing clash of the diving long on, where David Warner took a fine one-handed..
