BALL BY BALL
Ov 77: 1 1 1 0 W W ( 3 Runs, 2 Wkts )
England have won! Two in two for Leach and two catches in two for Root, in the end a convincing win for the home side a win of 135 runs, Wade the pick of the batters for Australia, Leach and Broad the pick of the bowlers for England, five wickets in the last session of the day gives England the win. A 2-2 draw for The Ashes series of 2019, a great contest between two great bowling attacks, Smith the pick of the players, scoring a ridiculous amount of runs in the 7 innings' he played, lots of good bowling from both teams and I think Australia showed why they have one of the best bowling attacks in the world.
England have won by a whopping margin of 135 runs, overpowering the visitors and registering a comprehensive victory, giving a memorable farewell to their retiring coach, Trevor Bayliss, by leveling the series. What a strong comeback from the hosts! Hugs, high-fives, and smiles all around England camp. So many players have etched their names in the history books with Steve Smith leading that list. How good was he in this Ashes?
England bag crucial World Test Championship points and will carry a lot of confidence before their next series against New Zealand. It has been a mouthwatering Ashes series and a very competitive battle! I hope you enjoyed Cricingif's live ball by ball coverage. ~ Rvel Zahid
76.6 - J Leach to J Hazlewood
Two in two! A sprawling diving effort by Root and he pouches a blinder at short midwicket and Australia's resistance has finally come to an end.
Two wickets in two overs for England, Lyon sweeps the ball straight to Root at square leg and England need just one more wicket to win the game and draw the series 2-2.
76.5 - J Leach to N Lyon
WICKET! Caught at square leg! Lyon goes for the sweep to put the bowler off his length but can't control it, Root takes a straight forward catch at square leg
Broad started the show today with the new cherry and now spinners have spun a thick web around Australia. Root and Leach have put the hosts on the path to ascendency ~ Rvel
76.4 - J Leach to N Lyon
Round the wicket, lobbed up on a fullish length just outside off, he shuffles back and across and belts it to the right of the bowler.
76.3 - J Leach to P Siddle
Good length ball, Siddle dances down the wicket and knocks the ball through covers.
76.2 - J Leach to N Lyon
Too full, out comes the sweep and he connects well to force it away towards backward square for a run. I think it's time to hand the bowl to a speedster from one end.
76.1 - J Leach to P Siddle
Very full ball on middle stump, Siddle works to mid-on for a single
Ov 76: W 0 0 0 0 0 ( Maiden, 1 Wkt )
75.6 - J Root to N Lyon
Too full on the pads, he could have dispatched that to midwicket boundary but instead just blocked it to the on side. That's what happens when a side is up against the wall and staring into the abyss.
75.5 - J Root to N Lyon
Touch fuller on off-stump, Lyon drives to mid-off

Nice forward lunge as he squirts it down to point.
75.3 - J Root to N Lyon
Full length heading down leg stump, Bairstow keeps it out
75.2 - J Root to N Lyon
The unsung hero Root throws it on a fuller length and Lyon digs it out back to the bowler.
Wade is out! The big wicket for England, He reaches out for one off Root and misses the ball and Bairstow does the rest at keeper, England need two more wickets to wrap this match up today.
75.1 - J Root to M Wade
Root has Wade finally! Wade comes down the wicket once again, but isn't to the pitch. Gets beaten for sharp turn and Bairstow completes the stumping this time around after getting stuffed up by the extra bounce. A superb knock comes to an end.
