Ashes : Australia vs England 5th Test Day 4 | Post Match Analysis


That's the close. Root and Bairstow did well to get through that period, but Australia well on track to make it 4-0. They built a huge lead, as Sydney soared to record temperatures, with hundreds for the Marsh brothers then grabbed two early wickets before tea. They chipped out another pair after the break, Nathan Lyon bowling very nicely, but the England captain held firm. How much play will there be tomorrow? For those in Sydney, it's gold coin donation to get in so why not pop along to watch Steven Smith lift the urn. Here are some the stats piled up earlier - nice for the Marshes, gruesome for England. We'll have analysis and reaction from the ground over the next few hours.
